Phu Quoc This beautiful island lies 65 miles off the south-west coast of Vietnam and is genuinely unspoiled by time & tourism. Travelers say that ?Vietnam is like Thailand 20 years ago?. If that?s true, then Phu Quoc is like Vietnam used to be 10 years ago!
Phu Quoc is about the same size as Singapore, 600 sq. kms and is the largest of all Vietnamese islands. There are 99 mountains and hills covered in green primitive forests with majestic waterfalls and babbling streams. The fresh sea breezes and stunning sandy beaches touching crystal clear blue waters make this a true paradise.
The tourist season is similar to Thailand?s. The good weather and clear waters start mid November and last until early June. Then the rainy season usually starts and diving conditions are not so good. This however compliments diving in Nha Trang & Whale Island where the rainy season can begin mid November till early January.
