    Hello everyone,

    has anyone been to one of the smaller islands off the coast from Rach Gia ? Their names are Nam Du Archipelago (biggest island: Hon Cu Tron), Hon Som and Hon Tre. There seems to be a daily boat service there from Rach Gia and you find a little - maybe not so reliable - information on the net on a tour around the Nam Du islands and on accomodation in local guesthouses on Ngang Islet belonging to the Nam Du Archipelago. The journey is supposed to be 5 hours although I don't know if this refers to a round trip or one way.

    As there are no reviews on the web but only posts by Vietnamese Travel Agencies, Press or Government, I wonder if anyone ever tried going there? Pictures look great and it seems a nice adventure, but maybe it is not so nice as these sources want it to appear? Is this boat service reliable?

    Thank you for any reports on these or other small islands in south Vietnam.
