10+ photos show the wild beauty of Con Dao Islands, Vietnam
Poetical beaches, pure blue seawater, and pristine coral reefs must be the very first eye-catching impression of tourists about Con Dao.
The sceneries of Con Dao are not only purely wild and fresh but also literally unique in Vietnam. It doesn’t matter whether you get a DSLR to catch every single shot of the unique scene because Con Dao is more than amazing for you to explore with your real eyes.
On hiking freely on Con Dao’s seafront promenade, you can pull over fading grass fields and mingle your soul with fresh air from the sea, blue sky, wind, and trees in the sparkling sunshine.
It’s infinitely an awesome place for you to enjoy the pure beauty of sunshine.
On Con Dao, tourists can watch the whole area’s sceneries from the peak of rocky ledges which give the feeling as visitors are in paradise on Earth.
One must-experience thing here is the winding seafront promenade along the coastline on Con Lon island – the biggest island of Con Dao.
Con Lon seafront promenade is tranquil and empty most of the day.
At the end of this seafront promenade is “The last point” named by locals. Here you get a chance to get off your vehicles then stay on rocky ledges to admire the utmost sunset view on Con Dao.
The most unique thing of Con Dao must be its tragic history, here was once hell on earth for thousands of Vietnamese-hero-and-heroine prisoners who languished and died in confinement in no less than a dozen jails during French rule and the American-backed regime.
