Hanoi, Vietnam, April 21, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Luxury Travel Ltd (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) is an award winning luxury tour operator in Vietnam and has unveilled new upscale travel experiences for the most discerning travelers.
In colonial times, the islands of Con Dao (also known as Poulo Condore) were feared as a notorious French prison was located on Con Son, the largest island of this remote southern archipelago.
Many of Vietnam's most famous freedom fighters served time on this lonely, windswept island, which lies 185 km south east of the port city of Vung Tau.
Today, the archipelago's residents survive by fishing, diving for pearls, collecting swallows' nests, and farming. Visitors will find starkly beautiful cliffs, long, untouched beaches, and patches of thick, old-growth forest. Sea turtles lay their eggs on the islands' remote beaches, while dolphins live offshore.
Just a 60 minute flight from Ho Chi Minh City, Con Dao offers an escape from modern life. Clients can also visit Con Dao Island by ship from Vung Tau beach or by charter helicopter.
Six Senses (sixsenses.com) recently announced a new property in Con Dao, Vietnam is taking bookings now.
Only a 60-minute flight from Ho Chi Minh City, Six Senses Con Dao opened in December 2010.
