The awful conditions that the prisoners were held in and the torture that they endured was horrendous. And it wasn't that long ago!!

Stopped here during a trip. There are photographs of ex prisoners and of some of the punishment that used to handed out which is difficult to comprehend how anyone could endure this. The accommodation huts in the concentration camp with mannequins as prisoners is quite...More

It was free and took about 30mins to walk through. Quite shocking but definitely worth of visiting. It was easy to arrive with a motorbike. Went to Sao beach and pagoda as well.

It is sobering to think that a country seems to be so at ease about horrendous brutality which happened such a short time ago. Many of the people involved must still be alive. The signs talk about a American puppet regime and ‘the enemy’ doing...More

This is a little macabre and morbid, however it is thought provoking and free to enter and work going to.

We stopped here on our way to Bai Sao beach as I read a lot about the place before. It's part of the Vietnamese history, definitely worth to see, but I expected little more.

It’s worth a visit. It won’t take long to look through. There is some pictures and a description of the prison when it housed North Vietnamese prisoners and an outdoor area where you see what the actual prison looked. Not an uplifting experience but interesting.

I must admit I was not over keen on going but there is so much emotion with all that went on. I can’t say I understand how humans can be so evil but it’s important to keep this memory for the world to see

Hi Christian! Fingernails island was nice, but the beach area very small and also small area for snorkeling. Gam Ghi Island is much better for snorkeling. Did not visit Pagada, but coconut prison you can visit on your own... More

I think it’s open every day without exception. No fees. You can wander around by yourself when and where you want.

It might be better to use a wheelchair because the prison is quite big and there are stairs that lead into each cabin.
