Phu Quoc Holidays

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. Dinh Cau Rock is a natural rock formation where local fishermen pray before going on fishing trips. It is believed that praying at this Buddhist shrine brings the locals good luck.

Steeped with exciting activities and unspoilt beauty, this island offers the perfect holiday destination for couples, families and solo travellers who wish to find a balance between relaxing days spent on the beach and fun activity-filled days.

    “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.”

  • Phu Quoc Boat Racing Festival

    Watch and cheer on the boats at Phu Quoc’s annual Boat Racing Festival, which takes place on Dinh Cau Beach on Reunification Day, which is on the 30th April. This exciting day sees keen boat racers travel from all around the country to take part in the competition and hope to be crowned the winner. Enjoy meeting and connecting with locals and other visitors cheering the competitors on at the shoreside whiles the exhilarating races take place. 

     

  • Flower Crab

    Seafood is aplenty on the island of Phu Quoc. If you’re overwhelmed by the choices, make sure you try flower crabs. Fresh red flower crabs provide a rich texture and an even richer taste that will have you longing for more. You’ll get to pick the crab you like straight from the tank and have it cooked the way you like too. The best flower crabs can be found in Ham Ninh.

     

For something totally different, twin your stay with Ho Chi Minh City, where old meets new and cosmopolitan culture offers a stark contrast to tranquil island life of Phu Quoc.
