Phu Quoc – The Emerald Island

Nested in the southwest of Vietnam in the Gulf of Thailand, Phu Quoc Island is indeed the cherished gem of Vietnam. Its tranquil and heavenly charm is further accentuated by the sapphire blue sea, crescent white sandy beaches on which rise green coconut rows, ever changing kaleidoscopic coral reefs and dark green perennial forests. In the middle of nature, human figures modestly adorn the picture, in fishing villages and on borderless pepper farms.


Long Beach: Phu Quoc is famous for its untouched, peaceful islets and breathtaking beaches. Having the longest and finest coastline of Phu Quoc, the Long Beach attracts surfers and beach goers with its rippling waves against the gleaming golden sand, muttering coconut rows in the winds, rapids and looming fishing villages amidst the sea. At sunset, the sky and the sea are shining bright red.

Phu Quoc National Park: On the northeast of the island lies Phu Quoc National Park. In the recess of plying perennial roots, a crystalline stream flows through, a waterfall tosses bubbles and wild animals roam. There are three major cordilleras, namely Ham Ninh, Ham Rong and Ganh Dau bordering a breathtaking coastline.

Ham Ninh Fishing Village: At the base of Ham Ninh Mountain lies a calm fishing village In the middle of  the tawdry dusk. From the undulating roofs by the coast and floating rafters off the shore, fishermen get aboard their vessels to embark on a voyage against the waves and harvest bountiful resources of the sea.

Phu Quoc Prison: Beside beautiful nature, Phu Quoc is richly filled with historical and cultural values.
