Con Dao Islands, Vietnam
When to go
Animal lovers should visit between May and October, when female sea-turtles take to the land to lay their eggs for the coming season. You may want to steer clear of the island between June and September. Late November through to July is the safest bet for calm, dry conditions.
PlanesFly into Ho Chi Minh City Airport (www.hochiminhcityairport.com), and take a 40-minute flight south with the Vietnam Air Services Company to tiny Con Dao airport, on the island of Con Son. From here, it's an easy 15km drive to the hotel, though it is best to pre-arrange your shuttle service with Six Senses Con Dao.
