  • Great museum on con dao war history. Would like to have seen more on the native sea life and wild. Worth a visit and most displays have an english translation.
  • Interesting place to learn about the island. Ticket is only 10.000 VND!

  • Lots of information about the history of the island. Most of it is also available on English. My visit was free.
  • Historic place - Should come there when to be Condao to more understand how Vietnamese people try keeping alive for their freedom.
