Currently, there are some 12 out of 79 households on the islet offering tourism services to visitors but in a tour program, tourists often choose to visit only a few places to explore cake-making, watch flying fish and pomelo garden, and row boats apart from taking a walk around countryside roads to experience the culture and lifestyle of local people there.

Tourists to the site will have the opportunity to visit floating fish-raft villages, orchards, and stork gardens, and learn to make traditional cakes and cook rustic dishes of local people there.

Tourists will pay a fee of VND15,000 for each sightseeing spot. In addition, visitors can buy fruits at reasonable prices to bring home as a gift. 

For example, Nam Roi pomelo and green-skinned pomelo are sold at VND25,000 and VND50,000 a kilo respectively while snakehead fish is priced at VND100,000 a kilo.

It is now an ideal time to take a sightseeing tour to Con Son as the fruit season has begun there.
