Muong Thanh Holiday Ly Son has a restaurant, outdoor swimming pool, a fitness center and bar in Ly Son. Staff was wonderful and really helpful throughout our stay there. The room was cozy and we slept very well. We asked the staff for an automatic motorbike and they arranged everything quickly. They also bought our boat tickets (to go back to the mainland) for us and arranged a car to pick us up at the port and drive us to the airport (much cheaper than taking a taxi). Overall, we had a wonderful experience and are definitely planning to come back in the near future. We might stay a little longer this time.

Ly Son is an island of fishermen, and I can't say It's a cute, but dirty and boring place( I hope the island has a great future! Locals still don't understand how to treat tourists and double prices, but nevertheless most of the people are kind and friendly! Constructions are everywhere and there are no normal bars and coffeehouses, but if you want to see a typical Vietnamese village, it is a right place to go! There are great views in some places, but almost no normal places to swim) Ferries from Quang are very comfy, fast and not that expensive! So, if you have a chance to go to Ly Son, do it! But 1-2 days is more the enough) You won't find a paradise island, but a fishermen town! And I can't say it wasn't interesting trip)
We chose to visit Ly Son as the island was recommended by a Vietnamese friend. Ly Son is very popular with local people and very few foreign tourists visit. The boats to the island run every hour or so and take around 45 minutes. We paid 178,000 dong each for our ticket (one way) and 90,000 dong for our motorbike. When you reach the island, the passengers on the boat rush to disembark and the port is soon filled with local tourists trying to find their hotels. The island is very small and you can drive around it’s entirety in about an hour. The island isn’t particularly pretty and there is quite a lot of rubbish laying around. We were told to watch the sunset at To Vo Gate which is described as ‘a small cliff lying closely under the sea’. It is basically a rock that you can walk over with a gate shaped gap. We couldn’t really get our heads around what was good about it! The area soon filled up with tourists taking hundreds of photos as we sat in a nearby shack drinking a beer wondering what the fuss was about. There are a few restaurants near the port selling fresh seafood at reasonable prices. We ordered 4 cooked oysters and were charged 80,000 dong. However if you walk down the street there is a restaurant called Tan Thành. We sat down at plastic table and chairs and were greeted by the husband and wife running the business. We ate clams which were cooked with garlic and onions topped with peanuts. We also had some crab meat soup and some crab claws that were coated in a sticky tamarind sauce. All of this and 3 beers for 200,000 dong. Ly Son is not really a place I would recommend. The food is good but no better than that we have had before. The scenery is mediocre and the island is not particularly easy to get to. There are much more beautiful and interesting places to visit while in Vietnam!
Picturesque island. Lot of sights, temples, small mountains/volcanoes, garlic fields. Two faces of island - the first one is inhabited a the second one are only ocean, beaches, cliffs and mountains. The first on rurally live, and the second one is omnipresent waste. But this is Vietnam and it is nessesarily to experience.
A very beautiful island. Should spend at least 1 full day and night for Đảo lớn (the main island) and 1 full day for Đảo bé (An Binh island). The scuba diving tour is amazing (be well prepared if you are sea-sick type).
The locals are very friendly and welcoming they go above and beyond. The area is beautiful with AMAZING sites (shame about the litter and the occasional buisnesses over charging white people) overall has an exceptional experience! Can’t wait to go back!
