Ly Son Island – Quang Ngai is a destination that attracts a lot of tourists from April to August every year. Coming to this island district, tourists and photographers can easily get pictures of the clear sea and islands, cone-shaped volcanoes, or the green garlic fields during the harvest season. However, taking such pictures is not an easy task.

Mr. Thao shared: “Having traveled through many regions of the country to travel and “hunt photos”, Ly Son is still the place that impressed me the most. The sea of Ly Son island has a very unique turquoise color. Above the island are dormant volcanoes and green garlic fields.
