HCM CITY – The Bà Rịa – Vũng Tàu Province’s Côn Đảo Island has been included on a list of the nine best paradise islands in the world to escape to this year by Vogue magazine. Côn Đảo is an archipelago of 16 islands, each one more beautiful than the last. Preserving the pure nature of the islands, there are only a few hotels built on the island. Another asset that this archipelago offers is its national park with an intact ecosystem, Vogue said. Con Dao has pristine beauty, mostly unspoiled beaches, forests and turquoise waters, and a strictly-protected national park.

FOR a man who refuses to fly, Dennis Bergkamp has done a pretty good job of piloting Holland into the semi-finals of the World Cup. He's scored three goals already in France 98, claiming a Dutch national record of 36 in the process. He struck the vital 90thminute winner against Argentina – a goal of such exquisite touch and ruthless execution that it could well prove to be the best individual effort of the tournament. He has been the inspiration behind so much of what has been a revelation about this Dutch side. And tonight in Marseille he comes up against Ronaldo – the Brazilian star who cost £20million when he moved from Barcelona to Inter Milan, and who at 21 is the brightest talent in the soccer firmament. It is not fanciful to suggest that they will be competing for more than a place in the World Cup final – they will also be playing for the right to be called the world's greatest footballer. Their showdown promises to be the most intriguing battle of France … [Read more...] about France ’98: So who is the best soccer player in the world?
