TESTIMONIALS

The guides they selected were very good and, in three cases (Seoul, Hoi An/Hue, and Angkor Wat) simply outstanding.

Con Dao

A tiny island off the coast of southern Vietnam, Con Dao was once a territory of the Cambodian Khmer Empire. With the advent of French colonial rule that Con Dao became known as the site of a notorious prison that utilized tiny, stifling tiger cages, and a practice that continued until the end of the Vietnam War.

Today, perhaps because of its seclusion and former role as a prison, Con Dao is a largely unspoiled area. The island sports virgin forests and tranquil beaches - perfect for eco-travelers who wish to enjoy nature in its truest form. The island was recently opened to tourism, and is now home to a new Six Senses resort.
