I wanted to add something to the conversation that's been going on about Con Son Island.

Con Son is actually a really interesting place with a lot of history, but there's one thing that keeps popping up in my mind: it's kind of hard to get to. There's no direct flight from Saigon to Con Son, and if you're coming from somewhere else in Vietnam, it's even worse. You have to go through Ho Chi Minh City first. So if you're traveling from outside the country, getting there will take some serious planning.

But if you're willing to make it work? You'll be rewarded with some great sights and activities!

What are those monkeys called? I remember seeing a video of a woman visiting the area and one of them was grabbing items out of her bag and then tried to lift up her skirt! These seem like a bunch of little furry trouble makers! haha

@homeg1rl I think you might have seen something from Vietnam's macaque island. That monkey is a macaque and they are very playful, cheeky, but also quite greedy and mean if they want something.

I've heard that the Con Son Island is a great place to visit, but it's also known for its lack of infrastructure. I'm wondering if there are any tours or activities that could be done without having to rely on a tour company?

Con Son Island is beautiful. I have wanted to go since learning about it. I have a friend online that goes every year since she visits family in Vietnam. She shares videos and pictures with me each year, Well for the last few years anyways. During COVID-19 in 2020 she got stuck in Vietnam because of the travel restrictions.

I have never been here but I always see it being recommended as a tourist attraction.  I am going to have to eventually go. I would like to plan a 2 month trip and see everything I want in Vietnam so I have time to enjoy it all.
