Devil's Island

Taking a vacation in Con Son is like stepping back in time, with the island of around 5,000 people offering a glimpse into what life in Vietnam was like before television and other modern conveniences arrived. Con Son's beautiful scenery of untouched beaches and rocky hills belies its sordid past--it was a penal colony between 1862 and 1975, and the site of much distress for those imprisoned there. Despite this, the island's traditional lifestyle and local cuisine make a visit to Con Son well worth the journey. You'll find only a handful of accommodations and a tiny airport capable of accepting small aircraft, but all this is sure to change as the former colony gains international popularity. Con Son is in Con Dao Islands. With our world travel planner, Vietnam vacations can be built around trips to Con Son and other destinations in Vietnam.
