Ly Son Island – Destination of travel in Quang Nam province
In this topic, i would like to share travel trip, personal feeling of Ly Son island located in Quang Nam province. It may give more travel information for those who plans to visit Vietnam in the near future.
Day 1: Hanoi city – Quang Ngai province – My Khe beach
Departed from Hanoi flight to Chu Lai by ATR 72, it takes around 2 hours to fly.
welcomes visitors with a very friendly activities. There is free bus from the airport taking passenger arrived at Chu Lai in Quang Ngai city. The journey is about of 40 km.
After arriving to Quang Ngai City, I take a taxi to My Khe Beach, about 15 km from the city. We stay overnight in My Khe to go to out Sa Ky port to the island of Ly Son by boat tomorrow morning. Due to the dark, we could not go to beach, just go to dinner. My Khe Beach is long with fine sand, primarily serve local people. Travelers from other provinces are still not much. Thhe hotels and restaurants are limited and quite simple.
Day 2. My Khe – Sa ky station – Ly Son
Sunrise on the beach My Khe – Quang Ngai province
There are two options for overnight in My Khe. 1 – Restaurant and hotel My Khe, 2 – Restaurant and hotel Pho Bien. The better choise is My Khe, in my opinion.
We take a bus to reach Sa Ky port station. Here it is.
There are a lot of fishing boat here.
In front is Ly Son big island
Left side is Little island (Be island)
Next to Port station is th hotel Central Ly Son where we stay while in Ly Son. It is 3 star hotel and has been used 6 months. The price is about 550.000 vnd/ night with breakfast
Welcome to Ly Son island.
We hire a bike for a cost of 150.000 vnd/day and begin to explore Ly Son big island.
First place I begin to discover is Chua Duc temple. The temple is built in caves of the cliff in one of five mountains in Ly Son and it is viewable rest rest of the crater.
Standing on the temple, I can see panorama of the coast and Archway gate (Cong To vo) and Little island
Below the temple is large cemetery area (one of the cemetery here) for the people living on the island. This is also a place where boats anchored to fishing.
Phat Ba Quan Am statue can be seen from little island.
Climb on top, we can see “Basin” as the mouth of crater.
The next destination is the Hang temple (Cave temple) and Cau Cave. The temple was made in the biggest cave. Background inside is tiled flat. Inside the temple is quite cool. Outside the cave there is a small water tank to collect water droplets flowed from inside the mountain.
We see some group of people taking wedding photos here.
