Phu Quoc is Vietnam’s largest island. Located off the southern coastline close to the Cambodian border, it boasts some wonderful white-sand beaches and tropical jungle. The sleepy island is best known for its black pepper trees, fishing and fish sauce. Nowadays, word has spread about the quality of the beaches and tourism is developing rapidly.
For now at least though, despite far more tourists, the island hasn’t lost its friendly atmosphere and laidback way of life. It's a decent sized island, meaning space for everyone. On the island, you can spend your days simply relaxing on the beach or around your hotel, diving down to discover the reefs, indulging in a massage or enjoying the fresh seafood.
Flights with Vietnam Airlines to Phu Quoc depart regularly each day from Ho Chi Minh City and take just under an hour. There are also daily boat rides from the coastal town of Rach Gia.
You'll find a number of good hotels on the island, two of which really stand out as worthy of a mention. La Veranda Resort & Spa is the best of the luxury properties. Beautifully designed and managed, this boutique property has it all. The Mango Bay Resort, on the windswept north of the island, is a wonderful beach hideaway. With two private beaches, acres of space and huge bungalows, there is perhaps no better place to really get away from it all!
