    Night market opens on Ly Son Island

    A night market for tourists has opened on the island of Ly Son, 30 km off the coast of central Quang Ngai province. Located at the front of the Muong Thanh Ly Son Hotel in An Vinh commune, the market is open from 6pm to 10.30pm daily, will host 40 pavilions selling souvenirs, dried seafood, and specialties of the island, and be an entertainment venue. It aims to provide more night entertainment and shopping services to visitors, as there is little to do on the island in the evening. Ly Son Island is a dormant volcano 25 to 30 million years old, with a landscape of rocks, caves, cliffs, stone arches, and a lake. Known as the ‘Kingdom of Garlic’ in Vietnam, it has 21,000 inhabitants and has become a popular tourism destination in recent years.
