Phu Quoc holidays offer an idyllic retreat for travellers who want to explore Vietnam’s largest island and relax on pristine white sandy beaches. Take a dip in the Gulf of Thailand or discover the colourful marine life that inhabits its waters by going snorkelling or scuba diving. Top up your tan and read a page-turning novel on Ganh Dau Beach, Ong Lang Beach or East Coast Road Beach.

Visit Phu Quoc Prison, which once imprisoned Northern Vietnamese soldiers during the Vietnam War. Learn about the fascinating history within the Phu Quoc Prison Museum, and observe exhibits that show what life was like for the soldiers. In the evening, take a trip to the night markets of Dinh Cau to sample some of the finest Vietnamese food available, and tuck into some seriously delicious fresh seafood. Or if you’re a little more adventurous, why not taste some local delicacies such as freshly-cooked frog or snake?

Peaceful island holidays in Phu Quoc

Snap some amazing photos of the brightly-coloured lighthouse and of the sunset at Dinh Cau Rock, also known as Cau Temple, during your Phu Quoc holidays.

“Foodies should try a tour of one of the fish sauce factories in Duong Dong. You’ll learn how this important staple of Vietnamese cuisine is made – and be able to try a few delicious varieties.”

“If you’re travelling with children in Phu Quoc, I highly recommend the Vinpearl Land Amusement Park. It has a water park, arcade centres, an aquarium and lots of shopping for the grown ups.”
