If you want to experience real Vietnam, real local people and habits, do yourself a favor and have yourself taken to the other side of the island to the clean, beautiful and untouched fishing village of Bai Huong. We experienced one of our best moments in Asia there, living in a homestay with one of the families who took us... More

Our tour guide picked us up at our hotel and we took a speedboat to Cham island where we walked around the village first to explore how the locals live, the temple and the market. We then took the speedboat to a beach to change and get ready for... More

Visited this lovely island on an overnight trip in June. If you take speed boat will take 30 mins to arrive if by wooden boat around 2 hours which I don't really recommend. The island is small but beautiful, locals are friendly. Beach and water very calm, crystal clear. Beautiful beach with white sand and palm tree. Nothing better after... More

Walking the small island and visiting an ancient Pagoda and exploring the village was enchanting. We snorkelled the small coral reef and found blue anenmone, clown fish and angel fish and clams and many other assorted sea life. Cruised to a beach... More

Went on a speed boat trip for the day. Visited the markets first then the little museum and the pagoda. Lovely quaint village, very friendly and helpful. Then snorkelling, but not given enough time. Back to the beach for a lovely lunch of traditional Vietnamese dishes. Relax on on the beach and a beautiful swim in the pristine water. Speedboat... More
