Historic Sites at Con Dao

+ Con Dao Museum

Like most Vietnamese museums, Con Dao's is neither slick nor particularly enlightening - especially for English speakers. It does however provide some important background to the island's barbaric past.

Especially striking is the list of prison alumni who went on to lead Vietnam's communists in war, first against France and then the US backed South Vietnamese regime. They include Le Duan, perhaps the second most influential figure in 20th century Vietnamese politics, Pham Van Dong, prime minister of North Vietnam and then united Vietnam for more than 30 years, Le Duc Tho, Kissinger's wily adversary in the Paris peace negotiations and many others.

There is also a small exhibit on the island's pre colonial history and its natural history.

Opposite the museum is pier 914. The name is derived from the number of prisoners said to have perished during its construction.

+ Phu Hai Prison Con Dao

The primary prison in the area, this monument to the torturous occupation of the French comes with chilling exhibits and a ghastly look into the treatment of Vietnamese prisoners. In a few of the chambers, mannequins are set up in the positions that locals were actually held in, giving a disturbing visual reference point to what may otherwise seem distant. It is the oldest prison camp on the island and it still carries a heavy and disturbing air.

+ Chuong Cop Prison Con Dao

+ Phu Son Camp

Directly next to Phu Hai Prison, Phu Son Camp has a similar structure, but it has more individual rooms as opposed to the greater prison halls featured at the former. Inside the infamous tiger cages, prisoners were shackled and tortured by guards from above, poking through grates with long bamboo sticks and throwing chemicals and other irritants down below. It is a spooky testament to the immoral ends that conflict drives men to.
