How to get there?

Phu Quoc is close to Cambodia, but it’s a Vietnamese territory. The island has two season – dry and rainy. Dry season begin October and continue to April. From May to October is a rainy season.

Phu Quoc has an airport in operation, so you can fly there direct from any major airport in Vietnam. There’s direct international flights from Malaysia, Taiwan, South Korea, Malaysia and Thailand.

If you’re coming from Cambodia, it’s best to get a minibus from Sihanoukville to Kampot, cross the border to Ha Tien (usually all in one ticket) and then ferry to the island.

We prefer to get a sleeper bus from Ho Chi Minh to Ha Tien and ferry to the island (all in one ticket again).

Things to do:

– Phu Quoc has a pretty much nice beaches. The famous one is Long beach. But if you want to see a white sand, go to do Sao beach. It’s quite touristy, but beautiful white sand and turquoise water. If you want to enjoy a nice beach, cafes and beautiful sunset, you have to choose the beach near Intercontinental hotel.

– Go to do Grand World Phu Quoc, well-known for the name “The sleepless city”.
