Over crowded and not much to see so it may not be worth the trip. I believe that it is named after the Cham people.

I enjoyed my 3 days and 2 nights on Cham Island in one of the homestays. Quiet place, some traditional life, friendly people, beautiful little pagoda, peaceful.

The island is quiet with narrow but paved paths for cycling. You can see the fishing nets and visit a house where they make rice wine, reed mats and really observe the native way of life up close.

Excited experience with high speed boat on the way to Cham Island. The beach is clean and beautiful. Local people are very friendly and nice. We taste fresh sea food in a local restaurant named "Dan Tri" with reasonable price.It is a spot at Hoi An that highly recommend for travelers.

I gave 4/5 as the place itself is beautiful, crystal clear water, beautiful coral & small fishes. maybe enjoy a lot if you have more time, and no tour guide rushing you ... if talking about the tour, I might only want to offer 2/5 ... the tour guide is a nice person and I was well looked after. but...

Looked forward to a great day snorkeling but it was not to be. Pick-up and transfer for the trip went well but for some reason there was a village tour first to spend some $. OK. Then we left for the snorkel site. Then got told half hour only, by the time all the non swimmers etc geared up we... More

We joined a local tour (around US 24 per person ) and the driver picked us up at 8am at our hotel. Point 1: Wired Check Point at a Statue Shop Before arriving the pier, the mini-van stopped in front of a statue shop and the door was opened without any notice. Tourists had to walk around for shopping (so... More

There's lots of mixed reviews about this day trip from Hoi An. We went with our three young kids and had a good day. Organisation (we went with Mat Bien / Ocean Eyes) was a bit haphazard, the boat crowded and the snorkeling was average (partly let down by the cloudy weather). But we had a fun time walking around...

Do go to the island by speedboat (150.000vd). Stay at hammock homestay with a sweet family who cooks for you. They arranged a boattrip with snorkeling that turned out to be our best trip so far. Beautiful fish, coralls and water. Dont do the trips, just fix it ur self!
