05 Days - Saigon And Con Dao Premium Beach

In less than a decade, Ho Chi Minh City, or commonly referred to as Saigon, has transformed itself into Asia’s most dynamic city. The city is now the industrial centre, economic capital and the heart of Vietnam’s burgeoning fashion industry and innovative cuisine. Yet within the teeming metropolis are the timeless traditions and beauty of an ancient culture. Con Dao is a 16 island archipelago within Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, in south east Vietnam. It is famed for its crystal clear blue-green waters, soft golden sand beaches, lush mangrove forests and beautiful coral reefs. Once “upon” a time, Con Dao Island was dubbed as “the Hell on Earth” by the political prisoners during the French era. The island has now transformed to a “Heaven on Earth” and drawn world’s well-known hotel brands to invest and Six Senses is one of them. Six Senses Con Dao is nestled in a beautiful secluded bay 8 km from Co Ong airport. The resort has a magnificent beach, a beguiling 1.5 km strip of golden sand with sloping dunes leading to turquoise waters, and dramatic Elephant Head Mountain as a backdrop. It is here “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” and their entourage had spent their holiday in November 2011.
