Spend two nights in Con Dao, a chain of 15 islands with scenic beaches and bays; together the islands and surrounding waters make up a protected area, Con Dao National Park. This area boasts striking natural beauty, but it also contains a tragic past. On a full-day tour, a knowledgeable guide enlightens you about the thousands of political prisoners confined on Con Son, the largest island in the archipelago, under the French- and American-backed regimes. you'll visit the Phu Hai Prison Complex after viewing exhibits tracing the island's history at the Con Dao Museum. Finish on a happier note with a day trip to Dam Trau Beach, Shark Cape and Con Dao Market.
