The ship arrived at the southern island Saturday after traveling to Indonesia and Singapore.

Passengers visited the infamous prisons where the French colonial administration jailed and tortured Vietnamese patriots and the cemetery where they are buried.

They also went diving to see coral reefs.

They left late Saturday for other Vietnamese localities including Ho Chi Minh City, Nha Trang, Quy Nhon, Da Nang, Hue, Quang Binh and Ha Long.
