Island hopping


Is there any chance for island hopping in Vietnam? I was wondering visiting a few islands During a beach holiday over Christmas since we're not really into lying on the same beach for two weeks, but very much interested in snorkeling and diving beside relaxation.

I appreciate any guidance.

There are such tours in Nha Trang. But they're day tours, you visit 3-4 islands, have lunch, snorkel.

Where are the islands you are referring to ? If you are wanting a brochure blue holiday that you see advertised in Travel Agents then VN is not the place for you. Nearest would be Thailand or maybe the Philippines.

The east sea along Vietnams coast is a sedimented green sea and you would have to go a long way offshore to get to good diving grounds. Paracels and Spratleys are off limits. Possibily Con Dao but not guaranteed.

I don't think Vietnam will give you the sort of holiday you are looking for..I would suggest Thailand.

We enjoyed the island hopping in Nha Trang, along with a superb seafood lunch. I don't believe there is any other area to island hop
