When it comes to Con Dao, everyone immediately thinks of the relic of Hang Duong Cemetery, considered the "Sacred Altar of the Fatherland". During the 113 years known as "Hell on Earth", under two imprisoned and tortured periods of colonialism and imperialism, tens of thousands of revolutionary soldiers and patriotic compatriots died, and some had to carry lifelong injuries… But it is also here that many revolutionary soldiers have become excellent leaders of our Party and State such as comrades Le Duan, Nguyen Van Cu, Nguyen Van Linh, Pham Van Dong, Ton Duc Thang… To express the deep gratitude of today's generation for the great sacrifices of President Ho Chi Minh, martyrs heroes, and patriotic compatriots for the cause of fighting for independence for the people; the huge significance of the great victory on April 30, 1975; the meaning of winning the International Labor Day on May 1, the victory of Dien Bien Phu on May 7; Con Dao District People's Committee organized the Con Dao Festival in 2023 in conjunction with the 30th anniversary of the establishment of Con Dao National Park.
