Lying in the balmy waters of the Gulf of Thailand, Phu Quoc is Vietnam’s largest island and home to some of the country’s best beaches. A white halo of sand encompasses this green, forested isle, 45km off Vietnam’s southwestern – most coast.
Below is 5 things about you should do when you go Phu Quoc Island:
Visit the local town market
Forest walk in the north
Sunrise at Su Muong Pagoda
Though Sunrise is the best time, anytime really is a good time to visit this old Mountain Pagoda. For a special visit proceed to the back of the property to the right hand side of the existing Pagoda following the path up to the old pagoda, go up to the first level for some prayer and enjoy spectacular views!
Adventurous ride around the north east
Follow the road from Bai Thom to Ham Ninh where it boasts sea views to the left and stunning mountain scenery to the right side, this is a great day trip. In or after heavy rain its not recommended to take this road, can be very steep in places & slippery!
