More than 2,300 foreign tourists have booked rooms at hotels and resorts this month on Con Dao Islands off the southern province of Ba Ria - Vung Tau, up 35 per cent year-on-year, according to the Con Dao District tourism authorities.

To attract more tourists, hotels and resorts there have invested in infrastructure and improving services and offered promotions like 30-40 per cent discounts on room rents and free spa services.

Con Dao, made up of 16 mountainous islets, has been named among the top 25 remote islands that tourists should visit in their lives by Business Insider, a leading US business and entertainment website. The islands have wonderful natural sceneries, beaches, mountains, and the Con Dao National Park.

The 45,000ha Con Dao National Park has a diverse eco-system with beautiful beaches, clear water, many species of corals, and tropical forests. The park is considered one of best examples of marine conservation in Viet Nam.
