Youth can not be bought by money, but if we have money together we will travel to record youth. Read the review of this group and together go to Co To island to save the moments of youth!
We went to Co To this is the second time. The experience has doubled, so I will share with you all the experience about Co To trip in the most honest way so that the article will be useful for those who are wondering to choose Co To for this summer.
On the first day, at 1:30 am, our group gathered at the Opera House to take Xuan Truong passenger car to Cai Rong port in Van Don, estimated that 5:30 am we would go to the port, the price is 130,000 VND / person. Overnight travel will save time on the car and arrive early in the morning, you could play all the morning. If you go in a large group, you should book in advance with the car and ship owners to not be missing seats and separate the delegation into small groups. At 5:30 am we arrived at the port, we had breakfast right there. Only 30,000 you could have a bowl of delicious seafood noodles. I booked the boat ticket of 7:30 am trip from the port to Co To, by Hoang Linh boat at 150,000 VND / ticket, this boat was slower than high speed boat but it was large, wide space, with big beds to gather to play. We could also go out to the deck to take a picture, feel the wind and watch the landscape. If you do not hurry then you should try to experience this boat when you go to Co To, it is cheap and fun.
At 9:00 am, we arrived Co To island. Going to a large group, I rented a homestay, one big room with 3 double beds, one with 2 double beds and 2 with a double bed. The house has 2 bathrooms, a kitchen (self-catering), refrigerator, hot and cold water, and TV. Our group had 13 people so only stayed one room with 3 beds and 1 room with 2 beds only. Only about 60,000 VND / person / night.
Take a rest, we got a motorcycle, went to lunch and went out in the Love Road. This time was the peak season so we ate early, so we could choose new items and good food. The food in Co To is cheap, delicious and full. Because it was the peak season in Co To, renting motorcycles was more expensive than normal and we had to to reserve in advance. Normal motorbike rental price was about 150,000 VND / 24 hours, but the tourist season could be up to 200,000 VND / 24 hours. Playing in the Love Road and Love Beach to the afternoon, we went swimming in Van Chay. Van Chay in Co To is a beach with big waves, suitable for young people like us. In the evening we returned and ate at the homestay. If you want to eat something, just order it with your guesthouse owner and then she goes to the market and cooks it, the money will be written, only the extra money to cook and clean is 250,000 VND / meal. Delicious and cheaper than the restaurant but full of seafood, it was full of specialties in Co To.
On the second day, after having breakfast, we went to the rocky cliffs Mong Rong and Cau My rocky beach, two famous and beautiful places in Co To. Here are to admire Co To from high above, also there are many super shimmering places to take photos. You should go early to feel morning air and it will be few people. Then, you can visit other tourist spots of Co To, such as Bac Van port and the lighthouse. In the afternoon, you should visit Hong Van beach. In addition to the sea bathing you can try kayak. There is a big wardrobe for the whole group for just 20,000 VND. Kayaking is 100,000 VND / boat for 2 people in 2 hours. There is an unforgettable experience in Co To that is evening BBQ right next to the beach. Super shimmering, interesting and romantic moments!
On the third day, we got up early to have breakfast then went to the seafood market to buy gifts. To say that seafood in Co To is the cheapest in all the places I’ve been to. The local people were extremely hospitable and especially they did not tell high prices as other tourist spots. At 7:00 am, we went to Small Co To island. Boat to Small Co To was about 500,000 – 600,000 VND / 2 ways (depending on your negotiating skill) for the whole group. Few people will be coupled with the other small group. Small Co To was wilder and more deserted. To 11:00 am, we was back to prepare belongings, we set the 12:30 am trip. We had a speed boat for fast speed so the ticket was 200,000 VND / ticket. Xuan Truog car picks up guests from the port to Hanoi from 1:00 – 3:00 pm, every 30 minutes there is a trip, based on the time to match the car time. Back ticket was about 110,000 VND / person, about 6 hours to go to Hanoi.
So, 3 day and 3 night trip was extremely exciting and the cost was just over 1,500,000 / person. You should travel Co To at least once, to be filled with wonderful experiences, go through all the emotions together in an island not so far but so many new things.
