What a disappointment this excursion turned out to be! Booked through a new local tour operator - expected them to attend this trip as our guide. But no, we were all just herded together - people had booked from various tour operators and paid various prices for the same trip. It was advertised as visiting various parts of the island,...

We ended our trip to Da Nang - Quang Nam by a tour visit to Cu Lao Cham - a series of isolated islands about 18km from the mainland. We started with a visit to living conditions of islanders with presence of sea creature musuem, famous well of fresh water, and the pagoda workshipping the first buddhas. It would be... More

We went on a trip from Da Nang, with big expectations, but oh, we were dissapointed. We started on one island a we had to rush to follow the (poor english speaking) tour guide. There were a lot of trash lying arround on the island. Afterwards we went to an other beach, but it was just to change into bathing... More

The Vietnam Scuba Diving boat to the island was comfortable, and the crew was competent and accommodating. The only thing was that the snorkeling sites were very thin on marine life. The corals were abundant and beautiful, but the area is very fished out. I did see a few nice parrot fish and a handful of other favorites, but by... More

We went with Classic Tours. The tour was mostly good, but our guide spoke no understandable english. As a result, he confirmed the snorkelling trip time as 1pm, but it was actually at11am, so we missed out. The beach had too much rubbish to make swimming fun, and our guide told all the locals in Vietnamese that they could buy... More

I visited this small island in last summer. The sea, sun and the beautiful coral, all I saw and I felt it was worth for what I paid. The only negative things in my trip was tour guide. He did not really care about the group so most of the things you have to do by yourself. So if you... More

I'm pleased I went to the Cham Islands but I was a little disappointed. However it was very busy with Asian tourists due to the Lunar New Year holidays. Booked the tour with a local tour operator. Prices seem to vary yet everyone appears to do the same itinerary. I paid 500 000 VND which I felt was good value.... More
