  • Con Co Island tourism underway

    The People’s Committee of the central province of Quang Tri has announced a project to open up tourism to Con Co Island. Tourists can travel to the island by high-speed boat, with round-trip tickets costing VND250,000 ($11) per person.

    Located 30 km off the mainland, Con Co Island is one of the most magnificent islands in the central region due to its diverse ecosystem. Popular activities on the island include swimming, trekking, scuba diving, canoeing, fishing and water sports. Tourists can also visit the hall of tradition, which houses items reflecting the history of the island district’s army and people over the past 55 years, pay tribute to Hill 37 Monument, and visit Ben Nghe - Mom Ho Beach.

  • Quang Tri opens new cave

    Authorities in the central province of Quang Tri are making plans to turn a newly-rediscovered cave into a tourist attraction. Rediscovered in 2012, Brai Cave, around 120 km west of Dong Ha town, was used as a refuge by Vietnamese soldiers during the US War. The 800-metre cave boasts beautiful stalactites and stalagmites in various shapes, colours, and sizes. After surveying Brai Cave the provincial people’s committee asked the local tourism department to devise a plan for tourism and seek advice from foreign experts.
