I am ashamed to say I knew very little about the Vietnam war prior to arriving in this country. However, as our coach arrived at The Coconut Tree Prison, as I disembarked an overwhelming feeling of sadness overcame me. As I walked around the prison my mood became more and more sombre and as I followed the part where they... More

the prison has been decommisioned year ago and today it is a museum and national heritage site. No visit to the island is complete without witnessing this unique historical place

We decided to visit the prison by scooter which is better than going in a bus also it is free ;). The prison trip is very interesting and only takes about 1 hour to walk through and read about it. Afterwards we went to Sao Beach which is only 5 mins away so having the scooter gives you the flexibility.

No fee for entry. Enough information is given so a guide is not needed. Very much from a North perspective. Another look at the recent history. About one hour is enough.

It will take about an hour to visit this prison and you don't need a guide to walk through the barracks. In them they reconstructed Viet Cong prisoners' life and the horrible tortures they suffered. Do not expect anything exceptional but it's worth visiting. Right outside the prison to its left looking at the road, there is a small dirt... More

The prison paints a very confronting view of the experience that people endured during the Vietnam war. Whilst very much an account from the North Vietnamese perspective it is a very interesting and in some cases horrifying. Entry is free, but I would personally like to see them charge a nominal fee for this. It would assist with the upkeep... More
