Nam Du has a chain of 21 islets and is seen as Halong Bay of southern Vietnam. The first destination is Cu Tron, one of the biggest islets of Nam Du, which has the biggest population in Nam Du and hostels for guests to stay overnight. For instance, Thuy Kiep hostel has air-conditioning, wifi, and water heater. It also serves delicious seafood at good prices, including small crab, oyster, fish and squid and hotpot, and especially fried fish rice.

After lunch, tourists should visit Hai Bo Dap Islet to swim, dive and catch sea urchins and snails. The next destination is Mau Islet where fresh and delicious crab and fish can be found. This is a good place to swim thanks to crystal-clear water or soft sand beach. It takes tourists around four hours to get back to the first destination of Cu Tron Islet.
