Flying at the height of 50 – 70m in the middle of the sea, you will have unforgettable strong feelings.
Near Tằm island is Mun island. Mun means blacks. It was a volcano a long time ago and has become black gradually. Mun island is around 10km from the heart of the city and it takes visitors over one hour to come to the island from the city. Mun island is the most beautiful diving place in Việt Nam. It has nine points for diving and under the sea water surface is the coral paradise for travelers’ exploration.
