The scenery of the two sides from the town to Ben Dam Harbor was entirely different from each other. One side of the road was covered with a lot of Confetti flowers and the other bank was the beach with rough cliffs that was breathtaking but dangerous. We could not stop taking a lot of pictures here because of the fantastic view of this place. Next, we visited Cau Temple, which was the temple built for Nguyen Anh’s son.

Then we moved to Dam Trau Beach. The road was so winding and rough that we nearly fell for sometimes. Each beach had its own style and beauty and so did Dam Trau. This beach was quite large with yellow sand and some seafood stalls. We quickly found an ideal place and started to choose some kinds of seafood. We had the opportunity to eat shells, moon crabs, which were very delicious and tasty.
In that afternoon, we came back to bathe because I preferred the beach in town. My friend and I found a stunning and quiet beach whose name were So Muoi. It was until 7 pm that we stopped bathing. The atmosphere at that time was so impressive with a beautiful moon and peaceful wave. It would be greater if we had a bottle of beer there. Two other friends and I drank iced milk coffee together and talked about many things. After that, we took a nap after a long traveling day.
At 11: 30 pm, we visited Hang Duong Cemetery and it was more crowded there at night than in the daytime. The lighting system here came from solar batteries; each tomb was a light so there were thousands of lights there. I offered incense in Vo Thi Sau’s tomb and other nearby ones. I also came to further tombs because I thought that not so many people came there. To be honest, I felt a little fearful although I didn’t know where that scary came from.
At 5 am, I had a walk on the peaceful and quiet roads. I also visited the market in which local people sold the green vegetables that they grew like spinach, pumpkin, and kale. Most of fruits and flowers here came from the mainland so they were a little more expensive than other ones.
After a full breakfast, my friend and I visited Phu Son and Phu Hai detention camp; the atmosphere in those places was so quiet that the silence was an uncomfortable pressure. I had a chance to listen to the structure of these sites, which included the Inland Princess Palace, museum, etc. locating in a large campus with a lot of green trees. I also visited the gallery in which the souvenirs of heroin Vo Thi Sau were displayed. This museum was located next to the small road where she was kept for 1 day 1 night.
Finally, we visited Phu Tuong detention camp and then came back to have a bath. We had a chance to have a bathe at some famous beaches here like So Muoi, Lo Voi, and Nhat. These beaches were very safe and comfortable. After that, we asked the way to Ong Dung forest, it was a little far but we still decided to come because we were interested in this destination. We came across Ma Thien Lanh in which two ranges of stones lying straightly.
We bought 20,000 VND tickets to visit Ong Dung forest and then explored this place according to the instruction of a forest protection officer. Coming across the primeval forest, we saw some naughty monkeys that were playing happily. One particular thing that all tourists liked very much when visiting Con Dao was that they would never lose their motorbikes even when the keys were still on the motorbikes. We drove a 600- meter way through the forest to reach the beach.
The beach was in our sight, there were quite a lot of stones and gravels, but we could still bathe there. The other beach near there was safer with white sand. Many tourists came here to see coral and try the Cellana shells. My friend and I had lunch in that natural but beautiful scenery with 2 packets of noodles, 2 cans of beer, fruits and candies. We felt quite happy with our journey and your visa on arrival Vietnam
