The Cham Island-Hoi An World Biosphere Reserve, recognised by UNESCO in 2009, is home to 3,000 inhabitants living in eight islets with vast ecological diversity.

The island, 20km off the coast of Hoi An city, is a favourite eco-tour site for tourists, and was the first locality in Vietnam to ban plastic bags and promote the 3-R (reduce, reuse and recycle) programme in 2011.

It hosts about 100,000 tourists annually, of which 10% are foreigners.

The island is home to 1,500ha of tropical forests and 6,700ha of sea featuring a wide range of marine fauna and flora, including many endangered species such as salangane (swallows), the long-tailed monkey and the crab-eating macaque.
