One hour away from Ho Chi Minh City, Can Gio stands out as the most special in the list for its clamp farms and unique monkey island. Here, tourists can try collecting clamps on the vast fields and gain insights into the hard life of the locals. Though the beaches are not as scenery as their counterparts in other addresses in the list, Can Gio attracts people’s attention for the one and only monkey island in the country, where people can directly interact with the naughty friends who may irritate, but entertain you to no ends. Although the beach itself does not compare to the blue water, white sand of Nha Trang and Mui Ne, it is worth a visit if you feel like mingling in with nature.
