Local tourists, especially youth, prefer to visit beautiful islands like Binh Ba, Binh Lap and Binh Hung in Cam Ranh Bay in the central province of Khanh Hoa as their ideal destinations to explore nature and sceneries almost untouched by time.
Travelers can take a bus in HCMC at 9 p.m. to arrive in Cam Ranh at 6 a.m. at a price of VND200,000 per person or they can fly to Cam Ranh but the fare is of course much higher.
Tourists are advised to visit Ba Ngoi wharf early in the morning to see daily activities of local fishermen and enjoy some seafood.
Visitors can choose to book a room at the high-end Ngoc Suong Resort but there are cheaper rooms available at Villa Dao Hoa Vang nestled at the foot of a mountain. The Villa also allows travelers to set up their own tents on the beach but should pay a fee of VND50,000 each.
People are recommended to take a bay tour by boat since they can ask the pilot to drop by any beach they like to admire coral reefs. These small beaches are located between some giant rock cliffs and have soft and white sand.
Then, lunch is suggested at one of the floating restaurants where visitors can savor local specialties, including steamed squid, fried/grilled/steamed fish and seafood hot pot.
