PHU QUOC ISLAND
PHU QUOC ISLAND
Phu Quoc is the largest and the most beautiful island in Vietnam, located in the south/west coast, in the Gulf of Thailand. A mild climate, white sand beaches, lush, emerald jungles and exotic Vietnamese cuisine continually attract travelers from all over the world. This paradise hideaway is known for its hospitality, including hundreds of hotels, convenient transportation, friendly locals and various activities – from chilling on the beach to exploring its tropical beauty.
Phu Quoc Island boasts idyllic beaches, romantic sunsets, evergreen forests, and a serene atmosphere, making it an ideal holiday destination for travellers looking to escape bustling city life. Located 45 kilometres west of Ha Tien in the far south of Vietnam, the northern part of the island is relatively untouched due to its status as a UNESCO-listed national park but there are plenty of luxurious resorts, funky bars, and quaint cafes along the southern coastline.
Aside from beachside activities, visitors can also explore traditional villages, expansive nature parks and Buddhist pagodas, all of which are easily accessible via motorcycle, taxi, bus or even daytrips by reputable companies. Catering to just about any budget level and preference, Phu Quoc’s dining scene ranges from local markets selling fresh seafood and Vietnamese street food to expat-owned bistros offering authentic western and European fare.
You can spend your days enjoying the warm sea and colorful sunsets while indulging yourself with fresh coconuts and seductive Asian flavors. Apart from the relaxing days you can also experience the island’s magical waterfalls, coral reefs and mountain landscape, wander around sleepy villages, hang out at the night market with its famous seafood delicacies, or explore the island’s quirky restaurants.
