Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam agreed with the People’s Committee of
the Central province of Quang Tri’s proposal on opening a new tourism
route to Con Co island.
The Deputy PM asked provincial authorities to work with the Ministry of
Defence, Ministry of Culture – Sport and Tourism and relevant agencies
in planning infrastructure construction for tourism, while ensuring
socio-economic development in concert with national defence.
Located 30 km from the mainland, Con Co island, which crosses the 17th
parallel, is considered an “outpost watch” due to its location.
Covering on area of 2.3 square kilometres, it is one of the most
magnificent islands of the central region with a diverse ecosystem.
Tourists to Con Co can visit the hall of tradition which houses items
reflecting the history of Con Co island district’s army and people over
the past 55 years, pay tribute to Hill 37 Monument and visit Ben Nghe –
