Nowadays, Phu Quoc was invested with seaports, resorts, hotels and restaurants. However, it still keeps its primitive beauty of an offshore island. Phu Quoc is famous for many beautiful beaches, streams, pagodas and seafood.

Moreover, like Cat Ba, Phu Quoc possesses a national park where reserves many rare and precious kinds of trees. Several streams such as Da Ban, Tranh with spectacular scenery will be great places for visitors to take photos.

 It would be a shortcoming if talking to Phu Quoc without mentioning food here. Being wrapped by the tropical sea, Phu Quoc is abundant of marine resources with fish, shrimp, squid, crabs. Nothing will be greater than sitting on the beaches, hearing the waves, watching the sea at night, smelling the fragrant aroma of baked oysters, grilled squid.

Things to do

Phu Quoc National Park

Phu Quoc National ParkPhu Quoc’s poor soil and lack of surface water have disappointed farmers for generations, although their grief has been the island’s environmental salvation. About 90% of the island is forested and the trees and adjoining marine environment now enjoy official protection. Indeed, this is the last large stand of forest in the south. In July 2010, the park was declared an Unesco Biosphere Reserve.

The forest is most dense in the northern half of the island. The area is a forest reserve (Khu Rung Nguyen Sinh). You’ll need a motorbike or mountain bike to get through the reserve. There are a few primitive dirt roads, but no real hiking trails.

Phu Quoc Transportation

Numerous companies operate speedy hydrofoils that sail between Rach Gia and Phu Quoc. Boats leave the mainland daily between 7am and 8.30am, and return from Phu Quoc between 12.30pm and 1.30pm. Ticket prices for the 2½-hour journey range from 150, 000 to 200, 000d for adults, and 70, 000 to 90, 000d for children. Tickets must be purchased in advance – though you can usually find a seat by booking as little as 30 minutes ahead. There are no fast boats going between Ha Tien and Phu Quoc, though dodgy wooden market boats also make the journey.

Hydrofoil companies include Super Dong (Rach Gia 077-878 475, Phu Quoc 077-980 111), Duong Dong Express (Rach Gia 077-879 765, Phu Quoc 077-990 747) and Hai Au (Rach Gia 077-879 455, Phu Quoc 077-990 555). All have offices by the dock in Rach Gia and in Phu Quoc – both by the An Thoi dock and in Duong Dong. Most travel agents can book passage.
All passenger ferries departing and arriving at Phu Quoc use the port of An Thoi on the southern tip of the island.

Vietnam Airlines has four flights daily between HCMC and Duong Dong, Phu Quoc’s main town.

A popular round trip between HCMC and Phu Quoc is to travel overland through the Mekong Delta, taking a ferry to the island from Rach Gia and, when you’re finally tanned and rested, taking the short one-hour flight (US$35) back to HCMC.
