Update: Feb 28, 2017
A high-speed boat is being put into use to reduce transport time between Sa Ky wharf to Ly Son island in the central province of Quang Ngai to 25 minutes.

It is the fastest boat running on the Sa Ky - Ly Son route, capitalized by Chin Nghia Co., Ltd. with nearly VND10 billion. The boat has 85 seats and is fitted with modern equipment.

In the next two months, the high-speed boat will be put into operation to provide more services for people and tourists who wish to travel to Ly Son.

According to the Ly Son district People’s Committee, in 2016, the island greeted more than 150,000 tourist arrivals, grossing a revenue of over VND100 billion.

Covering 9.97 square kilometers, Ly Son district includes two islands: Big island (known as Cu Lao Re) and Small island (known as Cu Lao Bo Bai) with three communes: An Vinh, An Hai and An Binh. In spite of being 15 nautical miles from the mainland, it has been becoming an attractive tourism destination with unique natural landscape, simple-hearted fishermen and well-known garlic fields.
