    Dinh Cau Rock is an odd-shaped natural formation beside Duong Dong Fishing Harbour, which houses a lighthouse and Buddhist shrine with a rooftop terrace. Also known as Cua Temple, it was constructed in 1937 to commemorate Thien Hau (the Goddess of the sea), whom locals believe provides protection for fishermen heading out to sea. There are 29 winding stone steps to reach the top of Cua Temple, where you will be greeted with spectacular sunset views of Dinh Cau Beach, Duong Dong Town, and neighbouring islets. Entrance to Dinh Cau Rock is free of charge, and there are plenty of food and beverage stands at the base of the temple if you’re feeling peckish. Read More...

    Duong Dong Market, located along Tran Phu Street, is Phu Quoc Island’s busiest and largest outdoor market. The best time to visit is in the early morning, where you can see the locals bargaining hard for household items, fresh and dried seafood, meats, sweets and fruit from mainland Vietnam. Duong Dong Market also houses plenty of food stalls serving fresh seafood, fruit juices, and Vietnamese cuisine at relatively low prices. As the island is renowned for its mushroom, pepper and cashew nuts, we highly recommend picking up a few as souvenirs for loved ones back home. Read More...

Currently, there are over two million people practising Cao Daism in Vietnam. Cao Dai Temple easily stands out from other temples on Phu Quoc Island thanks to its technicoloured exterior and religious symbols such as Buddhist swastikas, Christian crosses, and Islamic crescent moons.

    Su Muon Pagoda sits atop a hill about four kilometres east of Duong Dong Town, where visitors can pay their respects, get fortunes told, or simply enjoy the peaceful ambience. Built in 1932 by accountant-turned-monk Nguyen Kim Muon, this pagoda is mostly frequented by locals thanks to its rather hidden locale. The main hall is accessible via a 60-step stairway, housing colourful relics and golden statues of Buddha. As with most religious sites around the world, do dress conservatively and refrain from making noises during your visit to Su Muon Pagoda. Read More...

    Phu Quoc Prison is a bleak reminder of Vietnam’s turbulent history, where over 40,000 North Vietnamese soldiers were imprisoned during the Vietnam War. Built in 1949 by French colonists, this war museum now houses torture instruments, photographs of former detainees and exhibits of brutal punishments such as crucifixion, food deprivation, and electrocution. A prominent site in Phu Quoc Prison is the row of tiger cages, where prisoners were kept in total darkness and subjected to extreme heat and cold for a prolonged period of time. Entrance fee is priced at VND 3,000 per person, with tours available in English, French and Vietnamese. Read More...
