Vietnam is a vast and interesting country to visit with fascinating cultures, monuments and people. The north features some of the most best rural lands and limestone karsts you’ll ever see. The central regions are filled with heritage and culture, ranging from the UNESCO sites of Hoi An, My Son and Hue. And the south is your haven for rich green fields and abundant river and canal ways. In fact, this is also your spot for an ideal island getaway. Sail yourself away to Phu Quoc, Vietnam’s most popular island.
This is the spot for you to whisk yourself away from it all and relax in one of the country’s prime island spots. But there’s more to do here than nothing. The island is a paradise of forests and hills. These natural elements make it a perfect opportunity for some trekking. Others may feel the need to rent an off-road jeep and go exploring the island’s rugged interior. Two wheels may be the vehicle of choice for others. Be warned though Phu Quoc has its shares of potholes so be very careful when navigating your way around the island.
Other than the landscape (and beachscape) one other thing Phu Quoc is famous for is its condiments, namely fish sauce and black pepper. And the island’s natural makeup provides the resources needed; the anchovies from the shores and the spice from the island’s various pepper cultivation farms. The island is also known for its unique breed of dog. The Phu Quoc Ridgeback Dog is one of the world’s rarest dogs and are easily distinguished by the spiraling fur on their backs.
The beaches of Phu Quoc enjoy a quiet and serene nature about them,, especially when compared to some of the region’s mega beach resorts. You can easily explore the beaches by foot and keep going on and on. The waters are also quite tempting. Go on ahead and take that well-deserved swim. Colorful sea life also await your discovery via a nearby snorkel or dive excursion. In addition to featuring its spectacular beach, this charming island is home to local villages whose way of life has remained unchanged over the span of generations.
With freedom to plan your days as you wish at a fantastic price, our Phu Quoc Beach Break is the ideal, good-value extension to a Vietnam package, of which you can view here. Cap your trip right here on the island.
