[Upcoming Trip] – Explore Hidden Islands of Can Gio

Thiềng Liềng is an island in Thạnh An Village, Cần Giờ District, in the Southeast of HCM city. Being far away from the centre of HCMC, there are not many people knowing about its existence. Therefore, its rusticity still holds its charm over years. The people there mostly attach their lives to salt fields and fish or oyster farms. The most common means of transportation there is their feet, boats and sometimes bicycles; very few motorbikes are noticed, let alone any other big trucks on this small island. Surprisingly enough, many people there have earned their fame on Vietnamese traditional music, namely ‘Đờn ca tài tử’ which is very common in the Western Vietnam.
