Phu Quoc Island
Everything you Need to Know about Phu Quoc Island
Phu Quoc is a stunningly beautiful island in the far south of Vietnam, the country's largest. 99 forested mountains dominate the northern part of the island while the southern part is better known for its beaches.
The island's beauty is often compared to Phuket (its also a similar size), but without the people and infrastructure. The Vietnamese government has big plans for tourism on the island, a new airport is planned and many larger resorts will be opening over the next few years. Many consider it paradise with aquamarine water, idyllic beaches, romantic sunsets and a serene island-style atmosphere.
To get to the island you have two options; either by plane or ferry. The flight from Ho Chi Minh City to Duong Dong takes less than an hour, and you can also fly from Rach Gia in the Mekong Province. An alternative is to catch a ferry from Rach Gia, but flying is recommended.
