Where is Phu Quoc?

Phu Quoc is the largest island in Vietnam, 45km from Ha Tien and 120km from Rach Gia, belonging to Kien Giang province. Phu Quoc Island has an area of 580km2, possessing a system of rolling hills and mountains, rich flora and fauna and a winding strait that creates a beautiful scene of "a green pearl in the middle of a vast ocean".

Besides colorful nature, visitors will surely be interested in many famous attractions in Phu Quoc. For example, Vinpearl Land Phu Quoc (which has just changed its name to VinWonders Phu Quoc), the eco-tourism area of Suoi Tranh, Fairy Stream, Da Ngon stream, Da Ban stream, Phu Quoc national park, etc.

Ngoc Island also converges many modern hotels, homestays, resorts and villas with reasonable costs. Traveling to Phu Quoc on your own whether to explore nature, relax or enjoy Phu Quoc specialties, you will have the most satisfactory experience.

When is the perfect time to go to Phu Quoc?

Phu Quoc has two seasons: dry season and rainy season. The dry season starts from November to March of the following year. That is also the time when the climate is cool and convenient to explore the surrounding islands. The only negative point is that the airfare and hotel rooms are quite expensive at this time.

The rainy season in Phu Quoc usually lasts from April to October. The peak of storms is in August and September. You should avoid going to Phu Quoc during these two months because it rains heavily, the sea is rough and the streets have fallen trees. Because it is very dangerous, most entertainment activities are closed. Many tourists are unfortunately stuck on the island for many days in a row. April and October, when it has least raining, is the time when spring in Phu Quoc is at their most beautiful.

How to Go to Phu Quoc

Currently, many airlines are opening domestic flights to Phu Quoc from Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Da Nanand. Airfares to Phu Quoc are quite "soft", only about 1,200,000 VND for a pair of round-trip tickets. Book early to get the best price. If you come from Saigon, Rach Gia or Ha Tien, you can go to Phu Quoc by many other means of transport; The most popular is still a combination of cars and high-speed trains.

The main means of transportation of people on the island is motorbikes. However, if you go to Phu Quoc on your own in groups of 4 or more, you should rent a private car to relax, freely travel, easily change the schedule, and save costs.
