What people are saying about Central Vietnam

Enchanting island ! Not to be missed!

Speedy boat to Chàm Island and met with beautiful scenery and even more beautiful Islanders! Had a fantastic lunch with other groups and had so much fun !! Bought lovely necklaces and bracelets from local people at a very reasonable price! Next time I’m on Chàm islands I will stay for a few days ! Simply beautiful place !!

We enjoyed our day very much. The morning wasn't arranged very well, but as soon as we were on the island it was fantastic. There were also monkies - it was fun to look at them

The island is quite maintained, you have enough free time on the beach. He guides well, although on the ship I hurt my hand and didn't bother asking too much.

Great trip, you could have saved yourself the snorkeling at this point but it was still great to jump into the water and swim :)

I loved snorkeling and beaches. The visit to the town seemed more filling because there was nothing to attract attention.
