  • Dark pages of human history. Breathtaking experience to these tiger cages where people were tortured. Must see place while in Con Dao.
  • Although this prison is a must see in Con Dao and is a powerful reminder of how poor humanity can be, I was disappointed in how unfriendly the staff were to visiting foreigners. There was obvious contempt and no effort to accommodate or be helpful. There is very few interpretive signing to be had so visitors are at a loss of how to navigate. I am thankful the Vietnamese government is preserving these reminders of their past but staff training and signage are needed at this site.
