In An Thới, we should not miss Hon Móng Tay (the Nail island). There is no one lives here; hence no other service is available. Therefore, it is perfect for camping or to discover the wild nature and to see the choirs.

Near  An Thoi port, Hon Dam/Hon Gam Ghi is also known as the “Robinson Island” or the island of love. The island is so peaceful as it has no people except the bamboo houses and the sound of the waves which is very preferable and romantic for the couple. Here, you experience Robinson’s life without the internet and you only use solar energy by circling the island in a small boat to watch the sunset with the only homestay.

Another very special place is Mui Ong Doi, the only place where you can admire both the sunrise and the sunset with fabulous landscapes.
