VietNamNet Bridge - Still regarded as a rough gem, Cu Lao Cham or Cham Islet has become an attractive destination for many domestic and foreign tourists when they visit Hoi An.

Recognized as a world biosphere reserve by UNESCO, Cham Islet is a group of eight small islands: Hon Dai, Hon Mo, Hon Lao, Hon Kho Me, Hon Kho Con, Hon La, Hon Tai, and Hon Ong.

Nature has endowed it with green forests, wide beaches and an incredibly diverse ecosystem. With a total area of 15.5 km2 and 3,000 inhabitants, Cham Islet is only 18 km from Hoi An city. it has a marine ecosystem with 950 aquatic species, including many fish, and rare corals are almost intact.

From Cua Dai, visitors can reach Cham Islet by two types of vehicles. If they use timber boats, it will take about an hour to arrive at the islet and the trip will be shortened to about 20 minutes if visitors choose speedboats.

Visitors should note that passenger boats leave the port to Cham Islet at 8am and return to the mainland from 1-4pm.
