Phu Quoc hotels and tours

Phu Quoc Island

Covering 1,320 square kilometres, and with a population of about 70,000 people, Phu Quoc is the largest island in Vietnam, and the place for quiet beaches and rainforests. While tourist numbers are increasing, it is still quite off-the-beaten track. Choosing the right mix of Phu Quoc hotel location, travel distances and times, things to see and do, price and amenities on Phu Quoc can be difficult but rewarding.

Phu Quoc has a reputation as an unspoilt getaway paradise!

The two major drawcards of a visit to Phu Quoc island are the scenic, deserted beaches and the chance to trek through the largest forest still in existence in southern Vietnam. There are also other things to see and do, such as river-cruises, boat trips to some of the outlying islands, various activities such as fishing and snorkelling, and a range of interesting local items to browse through at the market, plus an unusual tourist attraction: visiting a fish sauce factory.

With its white sand and crystal clear water Bai Sao Beach is one of the most picturesque pieces of coastline on Phu Quoc. Bai Sao is about 30km from Duong Dong by road, with the road on the eastern side being sealed and providing a more comfortable journey. Hire a motorbike and take in the scenery yourself. Alternatively you could hire a driver, take a Phu Quoc tour, or even stop off at the beach as part of a snorkelling boat tour.

Territorial disputes with Cambodia over the ownership of the island are the cause of the large military base, which covers much of the northern end of the island. Due to this, the whole island was for many years off-limits as a tourist destination. The Americans used it as a prison island at one stage, and held up to 40,000 VC here at its peak. However, in recent times, it has slowly been opening itself up to tourism, and is slowly developing the necessary infrastructure and places to stay to handle the steady influx of visitors. If you would like to stay near a particular beach or landmark, our Phu Quoc map shows you the Phu Quoc hotels you can book with us.

In the meantime, however, the untouched forests and pristine beaches continue to exist. Some of the best beaches are actually in the military zone, but those are sometimes open to visitors, albeit only on specific days or with conditions attached. Ask at your hotel in Phu Quoc for up-to-date information about visiting beaches within the military zone, and make sure you never take pictures of any military installation!

In 2001, 70% of Phu Quoc was declared part of Phu Quoc National Park, and this area represents the largest forest still standing in southern Vietnam. It has also protected the island from the extensive logging that has felled many of the forests on the mainland, and allows for some excellent trekking. This has certainly helped bring the island to the attention of would-be visitors, but the tourism industry in Phu Quoc is still certainly in its infancy. indeed, it is more renowned throughout the country for producing the best fish sauce in the country, with the island churning out about 6 million litres per year.

The best time to visit is in December to February, when there are constant blue skies and a calm sea. Temperatures soar during these months, making the beaches an attractive option. The rainy season runs from July to November, and it is generally advisable to visit the island outside of these months, as a number of the attractions, such as a boat trip or tour in Phu Quoc out to the An Thoi islands, is normally not available during this time of year. As well, many of the dirt roads can become impassable during the rainy season.

Whilst on your Phu Quoc holiday, make sure you visit some other nearby Vietnamese destinations such as Saigon, Can Tho, and Chau Doc. Phu Quoc is a relaxing, rewarding destination that is slowly opening itself up to visitors!
