The speed boat ride to the island was ok.. The island itself has little to offer. Our day trip included snorkelling.. But with life jackets and goggles only (no snorkels) it was impossible to see anything. The lunch was dreadful.. The worst meal we had in 3 weeks in Vietnam. The local wasps plagued us the whole time we were... More

Nothing good- the speed boat ride is too long, the village they make u stay an hour doesn't worth two min, the snorkeling is in a place nothing to see, the food is bad, the beach is dirty and crowded. What a waste of time and money...

Going on a day tour will cost you 25 US$ within about 6 hours (8am-2pm). You will be taken down to Bai Lang after 20' on a speed boat, and then exploring around at the "museum" which is far under standard of a museum, and the pirate temple and around the market place. All of this will waste over an... More

Went to Cham Island via tour booked through our hotel with hoiantravel. Generally, the tour was ok. Picked up at 10am from our hotel in a mini van which is pretty new and well maintained. The speedboats and life jackets were very new and clean. The speedboat ride was the highlight of this trip for me as I was seated... More

Beautiful landscape, snorkeling is great and the food offered in the half a day trip is really good. The tour is a bit expensive but it is worth going

Like many other reviews, worst snorkelling tour I have seen. Sitting around on the main dock waiting to go. Nice boat ride to the island then sit around waiting for tour to start. Finally a tour of the small town. Infested with so many tourists it's hard to move. Taken by an exhibit of poorly preserved sea creatures in bottles... More

Our tour guide dithered and wasted our time trying to co-ordinate about 15 people on our speed boat. The actual snorkelling (about 30mins) was not too bad, the rest of it including mass produced cold lunch and a boring tour of a village, standing around waiting was very poor. We had pleasant weather,calm seas and it has to be said,... More
