Phu Quoc - Pearl Island

 

Phu Quoc Island is one of the most popular destinations in Vietnam for sun seeking travelers. It is known for its friendly locals, lush green jungles, warm turquoise waters and long beautiful sunny days. Located in the Gulf of Thailand, 45km west of Ha Tien on the Vietnamese mainland and 15km from the south coast of Cambodia, Phu Quoc boasts some of the most pristine beaches in Vietnam, including the Island itself and 21 smaller islets.

In 2019, Phu Quoc was ranked 3 times by CNN Travel as being among the top 30 most Beautiful Destinations in Vietnam, a worthy stay destination for a relaxing vacation. Last July Phu Quoc continued to be widely listed as among 9 of the Best Places to Visit for The Ultimate Asia Experience 2019.
