If you’re in the mood (and who isn’t) for a Vietnamese beach flop or an idyllic island getaway, then look no further.
The beauty of Phu Quoc and its location just off the southern tip of Cambodia have meant that rights to the island have been disputed for centuries with Cambodia also claiming a historical right to sovereignty. Now officially affiliated to Vietnam, this tropical paradise has waved farewell to controversy and returned to the soulful seaside roots that are its birth right. Jaw-dropping beautiful and secluded, enjoy this untouched pearl before the world comes flocking. Explore the surrounding waters rich in marine life with superb viewing for divers and snorkellers alike. There’s also a densely forested interior
to discover. A lot of the island is under the protection of the Phu Quoc National Park with plenty of opportunities for trekking amongst the lush vegetation, visiting picturesque waterfalls, coconut plantations and pepper farms. Explore small peaceful fishing villages or just wander secluded beaches to kayak from. Feast on the freshest and finest seafood in all of Vietnam, we can recommend the best local restaurants while the islands handful of hotels offer some fine dining and luxury service to go with the tropical surrounds. Duong Dong, the main town feels deeply traditional with bustling markets and a fishing port full of colourful local fishing boats and is a fascinating diversion from the stunning coastline.
