Your guide to fabulous Phú Quốc, Vietnam
Vietnam’s long skinny coastline and 3,000-plus islands mean the country is not short of a good beach or two. However, none impress as much as Phú Quốc, Vietnam’s largest island, found off the coast of Cambodia in the Gulf of Thailand.
An idyllic getaway awaits, where stunning white sandy beaches, inviting azure waters, and the island’s verdant inland terrain reward you with relaxation, rejuvenation, and unforgettable memories. Use this handy guide to plan your ideal Phú Quốc holiday.
Phú Quốc was, until fairly recently, a forgotten slice of paradise, with only intrepid travellers making the rocky, hours-long boat ride to the island. Now, travellers can fly direct from Ho Chi Minh City and several other Vietnamese cities, or jet in from Bangkok, Siem Reap, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur. The best time to travel to Phú Quốc is from October to April.
