Two islands in Viet Nam among The Telegraph's list of most pristine beaches

Oct 19, 2018 Picture:  Two small islands in Viet Nam have been named among a list of 10 beaches in Southeast Asia unspoilt by tourism suggested by a travel piece in the UK newspaper The Telegraph. They are An Thoi islet off Phu Quoc Island in southern Kien Giang province, and Binh Lap island in the central province of Khanh Hoa. Remarking on the “construction site soundtrack” that accompanies beaches on Phu Quoc, the article advises travellers to take a boat from the island’s port to An Thoi, which has “secluded coves and colourful reefs almost completely devoid of humans.” Fifth on the list is Binh Lap Island in Cam Ranh Bay, which it describes as secluded and “more Seychelles than Southeast Asia.” Two beaches each in Thailand and Malaysia, one each in Hong Kong, Cambodia and the Philippines are also in the list. Interestingly, it includes an island in landlocked Laos, “which only materialises in the November to April dry season as the Mekong River recedes.” To prevent these and other unspoilt beaches from being ruined by tourism, The Telegraph article advises visitors to “be responsible by removing all of your own rubbish, don’t abscond with seashells or sands and use an ocean-safe sunscreen.” Source: VNA Category:  Eco & Green National Tourism & Destinations FeaturedNews:  Show in Featured News TopPicture:  ...
