Exploring pristine Con Co Island in Quang Tri

Quang Tri province comes alive in the summer with sea and island tourism activities, particularly Con Co island tours, which never fail to draw large numbers of visitors from all over the nation to witness the breathtakingly beautiful and untamed island on the nation’s frontier island.

Exploring pristine Con Co Island in Quang Tri

The Con Co island tour enters its busiest season in June. Con Co island is explored on a 2-day, 1-night tour that is organized by Green Travel QT Company and offers guests a wealth of unique experiences.

Ms. Nguyen Thi Quynh Anh, a Hue City tourist taking the tour, said the group of tourists arrived at the island via the Chin Nghia Quang Tri high-speed boat. An hour or so after the ship sailed from the wharf, it docked at the island. As with many visitors, she was moved by the sight of the island from a distance because she was going to walk on a small, brave island that was referred to as a “pearl in the East Sea.”

Director of Green Travel QT Company, Vo Thi Hong Tham, said that everyone visiting the island is excited to take advantage of the many fascinating experiences it has to offer. The benefit is that many elderly people can visit all the major locations because tourists can rent electric cars on the island for VND70,000 (US$2.75) per person for a complete package that includes transportation from the ship’s dock to the next morning.

It is also very convenient for visitors who wish to explore Con Co Island while exercising, as the district’s Tourism Service Center rents bicycles.

At approximately 10:00 in the morning, the moment that many members of the group had been waiting for – the sacred and proud salute to the national flag on Con Co Island – arrived. Everyone sang the magnificent National Anthem as the national flag fluttered proudly in the serene sky amid the sun, wind, and sea. After that, tourists continue to visit other significant island landmarks until almost 12 o’clock.

At the Tram Anh restaurant, diners can savor visually appealing seafood dishes during lunch, like oyster porridge, seaweed salad, Con Co king oyster dish, and crabs, crabs, and more that they either don’t have or have to bring them in from the island. The tourists checked in and stayed at the District Military Command guesthouse after lunch.

There are also some really cozy motels on the island, like the Sao Bien, Hung Phuong, and District People’s Committee guesthouse.
