If you fancy a real snorkling trip, don't bother going to the Cham Islands. The boat tour is not very exciting. The first walk in the "village" is just a tourist trap. Snorking can only be done at a designated place which isn't very exciting either. And in our case: a lot of jelly fish. Lunch was ok, but in... More

Go with Cham Island Diving or don't go at all. It was clear that the other companies don't care about customer experience and shove tourists into a tiny speedboat while we were on a large boat with comfortable lounge chairs and good service and good guidance. Beware of the small stinging jellyfish and wear a wetsuit!

We booked a day trip by speedboat. A great day and well worth doing. Coral and fish were nice and the tour around the village and beach were very good.

This beach was pretty nice, reasonably clean, not that busy when we went there and the water was quite clean and clear. It is not the most stunning beach but it was definitely nice :)

I accompanied my husband and daughter on the third and final day of their PADI diving course and just went along for the boat ride, the lunch, and a bit of sunbathing. We decided we would love to come back to Hoi An again and next time would book a couple of nights on this small but beautiful island. A... More
