The ultimate way to escape the bustle of the mainland, Vietnam’s collection of islands beckon with golden shores and shimmering crystalline waters. Phu Quoc may be the most famous, but don’t miss out on the hidden gems of Con Dao.
Phu Quoc, the largest of Vietnam’s islands, is frequently hailed as the most beautiful, and it’s easy to see why. Largely undeveloped, the island has an unhurried vibe complemented by the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Thailand, unspoilt beaches, and plenty of lush vegetation to explore. More treasures await underwater, with schools of tropical fish, pristine corals and PADI courses ready for snorkelling and scuba diving.
A stunning string of islands off Vietnam’s southern coast, most of the Con Dao archipelago is protected as a marine national park and as such has preserved much of its natural beauty. When you’re not lounging on secluded palm-fringed bays or discovering the rich marine life, you can take tranquil strolls along empty coastal roads and enjoy sunset dinners by the sea.
A cluster of limestone pinnacles set in emerald green waters, the islands of Halong Bay are simply unmissable. Deemed a UNESCO World Heritage site, the jagged islets, hidden grottoes and secluded beaches that make up this sensational seascape are best explored by a traditional junk boat.
