Perhaps that’s why when coming to this beautiful island in Quang Nam province, visitors will not see any traffic lights or traffic policemen at the intersection as a normal thing in cities. big.
The means of transportation on the island are quite smooth, no traffic jams, no jostling and the sound of car horns is something a bit strange. The road on the island is not a big road, just paved roads just enough for a 7-seater car and motorbike to avoid each other. It’s so small, but it seems like there’s never been a traffic jam in Ly Son. People riding on the island are also very strange, it seems that they are not in a hurry or try to honk to take advantage of a few minutes of speeding and overtaking. The two most crowded roads on the island are every morning and afternoon when students go to school and leave school. But just like that, everything returned to extremely peaceful and deserted.
2. No taxi – no Grab – No cyclo
The main means of transportation on the island are motorbikes and cars, but there are not many and mainly small cars with 4 to 7 seats. The distance from home to the market, to school or to work is probably only about ten minutes by motorbike. Is that why the seemingly familiar vehicles in the city such as taxis or Grab technology car booking application do not appear on this Ly Son island.
In tourist cities such as Hanoi, Saigon or Da Nang and Hue, cyclo is the means that many tourists choose to leisurely visit the city. However, tourists certainly cannot find a cyclo on the island.

3. Don’t steal
No theft is one of the interesting things when coming to Ly Son which is recognized by many tourists and locals alike.

When you see a beautiful scene, a delicious restaurant, just park your car on the roadside, swoop in to eat and drink or take hundreds of photos, the motorbike will still be the same. Even when coming to a sightseeing spot, some shops are friendly and invite visitors to leave their cars under their shacks to block the sun without taking any money for parking, because they know that the car can’t be lost.
