Getting there & around
With its newly upgraded airport, Con Son Island offers flights departing every other day from HCMC, operated by Vasco (Vietnam Air Services Company) for US$80 return. The tiny airport is about 15km from the town centre. All of the hotels provide free transport to and from the airport. Although it’s advisable to book your hotel ahead and arrange to be met at the airport, you can often show up and grab a seat on one of the hotel shuttle vans that meet the plane – though it would be bad form not to stay at least a night at whatever hotel gives you a free lift.
If you want to explore the islands by boat, hire one from the national park office. A 12-person boat costs around 1, 200, 000d per day.
