Trip Review: A PLACE CALLED HEAVEN – MALDIVES IN VIETNAM
Ly Son Island is the garlic kingdom of Vietnam. It is the only island belongs to Quang Ngai province . I’d like to give a brieft review of my nearest trip to Ly Son Island this March/2017. This month is also the harvest of garlics here.
How to get there? we choose take flight to Chu Lai airport ( you also fly to Da Nang in stead of Quang Ngai ).Because we spend three days for this trip so we choose Chu Lai airport closer than Da Nang). We buy cheap price at promo of Vietjet air. Then transfer by taxi or motorbike to Quang Ngai Province, finally to Sa Ky Harbour.The second way to transfer to Ly Son Island is taking a free bus from Chu Lai airport to Quang Ngai Province and bus transfer to Sa Ky Harbour at 25.000 vnd only.
Transfer from Sa Ky habour to Ly Son island by high speed vessel
Price : 110.000vnd/1 ticket/1 way
Time: Morning 8h am, 11h30am, 1.30 pm, 3h30 pm 2. Where to stay?
Muong Thanh Ly Son (4*): the lowest price : 2 mil vnd/ night Centrally Ly Son, Dai Duong hotel, Ly Son hotel (3*): 350.000-500.000 vnd/room/night Many new motel , hostel only around 300.000-400.000/night 3. What to do and to see in Ly Son Island
First day we arrive BIg Island at 1h30 .After checking in hotel and relax abit we start the discovery at 3pm . First we visit Hang pagoda,Hang Cau where you enjoy the fresh atmosphere, blue sea, green sea wee To Vo gate – where you are waiting the sunset, fantastic sceneries
Day 2: We rent a canoe to Small Island ( Đảo Bé) the paradise as I called Maldives in Vietnam.Price: 50.000/1 person /return way . Then you take atuk tuk to visit around at 30.000vnd/person .Driver will stop some nicest place for taking photograph . This journey in 3 hours. 11 am we back canoe to Big Island
We shouted and feel surprised when see it .We took many beautiful photos here
Relaxing or swimming , seeing the coral deep on the crystal clear ocean . Price for seeing the coral: 60.000/person 3. Sea food and Garlics do not missiout Enjoy the fresh delicious meals with sea food and special garlic here: Ta Ma Fish, garlic salad, jellyfish salad, seaweed, snail, Huynh De crab..I highly recommend Long Hien restaurant We finish 2 days in Ly Son Island and take a vessel to Saky at 4pm
Spend 1 night in Riverside Villa in Quang Ngai
Short time in Quang ngai you just relax at hotel and having dinner in Bo Ke enjoy food, walking night market, or go to bar club in OB club or Oasis.End at 11 pm then sleep early for flight back home on the next day
My budget trip is about 100 $/person ( depend on you can have cheap for flight) But when you come here you dont have to worry you will loose much money , so cheap expense
Bye bye Quang Ngai and paradise Ly Son island we want to back with more day. If you want to make a plan do not hesitate to contact me
