Quiet delights of Cu Lao Cham
The beaches and attractive landscapes of Cu Lao Cham in Quang Nam Province are a draw for travellers.
The island in Tan Diep Commune in Hoi An has been recognised by UNESCO as World’s Biosphere Reserve. It boasts several relics from diverse and ancient cultures, such as Sa Huynh, Cham Pa and Dai Viet.
Arriving in Cu Lao Cham in the early morning is a rare delight, giving the visitor a chance to see the dawn’s glow from serene beaches.
Blue, clear and isolated coastline, such as Ong and Huong, are ideal destinations for holidays. The sea takes on a special sparkle at sunrise and sunset.
Visitors’ first impressions may be the warm smile and hospitality of the locals.
This is a fishing town, and fresh fish can be found in the area markets.
In addition, this is one of the few areas in Vietnam where Cham people can still be found.
Hai Tang Pagoda, built more than 400 years ago, adds to the town’s rare atmosphere. Burning a few sticks of incense and walking around the town may renew your senses and give you a bit of respite from the noise and fury of every day life.
At night, the silence of Cu Lao Cham is quite noticeable, compared to the busy streets of big cities. The only sounds are made by the waves crashing into the shore.
