Phu Quoc

Introduction
Phu Quoc is an island with something for everyone – fantastic beaches, unspoiled forests and a flourishing marine life in transparent blue green waters. Although still under-developed there are plans for major hotel and resort expansion on the island. Phu Quoc Island lies in the Gulf of Thailand, 45km west of Ha Tien and 15km south of the Cambodian coast. Phu Quoc’s other claim to fame is the production of fish sauce or "nuoc mam".

The best time of year to visit is from November through April (dry season)

Places of interest

An Thoi Islands and Hon Thom Fishing Village
Off the southern tip of the main island (30 minutes by boat from An Thoi), the 15 islands of An Thoi abound with scenic beaches, azure waters, colorful coral reefs and colonies of fish. Several of the islands are uninhabited and pristine whilst on some of the others a host of leisure activities awaits you including swimming, snorkeling and fishing. Don't fail to stop at a fishing village in Hon Thom to see the locals' daily chores and experience their friendliness.

White Sandy Beach
First-time visitors to Phu Quoc are often surprised at its sugary-white beaches and crystal-clear water. The most spectacular beaches are along the western coast and southern tip of the island. Not far from the main town there are private beaches with cozy hideaways that are perfect for the family holiday.

Phu Quoc Natural Reserve
Established in 1986 and later expanded to a total area of 37,000 ha, Phu Quoc Natural Reserve with diverse flora and fauna covers mainly the mountainous northern part of the island. There are over 900 tree species of which 19 newly-found species were first recorded in Vietnam. The forest is home to many types of birds and small mammals (flying squirrels, sloth-monkeys). Trekking through the park should be done in the dry season only.

Fish Sauce Factory
The island is famous for its production of high-quality fish sauce. Phu Quoc produces 6 million liters of fish sauce every year. At first glance, the giant wooden vats resemble those in vineyards. It does that a little while to get used to the pungent aroma of the sauce!

Rainy season is from June to October and can bring harsh storms.
