How can we travel from the airport to Con Dao town?

Hello

We're spending 3 nights in the Six Senses but are planning on arriving a day early and staying in a small B&B in Con Dao town - such as Hai An Hotel, however this place does't seem to have a website (thus I can't contact them to see if they can arrange transport).

Will there be any taxis at the airport and approximately how much would they be?

Also is there much to see/do/travel to while based in Con Dao town to make it worthwhile staying there more than one night before going to the Six Senses?

Thank you

XeOms are the popular mode of transport on the island. Motorbike taxi in English.

Senses have a service but you arent going there till later.

There's some really nice old French colonial buildings in Con Dao town as well as the Con Dao museum, Vo Thi Sau memorial and the prison camps. However if you've got 3 nts booked at Six Senses there's little point adding an extra night on as all the above can be seen in a day - you can either book a tour (expensive) through Six Senses, or rent a motorbike and do it that way. Safe place to drive as there is virtually no traffic on the whole island.

Thanks Pierre. I suppose its not possible or difficult to get on a X3Om with a suitcase?

Do resorts like Con Dao Resort have airport pickup?

Thanks Timmyruss.

One reason for staying an extra night elsewhere in addition to the SS is so that we can maximize the short amount of time we are at the SS to do absolutely nothing and just relax. And if we're going to look around the town or elsewhere before might as well stay there for a night and also try some local food places conveniently. Then go the SS and switch off.

Hotcheese. .good thinking.

We did exactly the same thing a couple of years ago and it worked perfectly. Why pay for a luxury resort then spend all day out of the resort touring
