Where to visit in Phu Quoc Island

Home to most of the beach-bungalow hotels and places to play in Phu Quoc, Long Beach, a 19-kilometer strip of white sand running south from Duong Dong, is the star and the liveliest beach of the island. If Long Beach is where to go for tourism service, the capital and largest city of Phu Quoc named Duong Dong is the place to go for a few old colonial-era buildings, the Caodist temples, the island’s main fishing fleet with an picturesque sight of all the boats lined up along the banks and a visit to the central market.

What to do in Phu Quoc

Besides taking advantage of the resorts lining Long Beach and development beginning on the east coast, you should also spend time on escaping and exploration. There is no lack of interesting activities to enjoy: dive the ridges, kayak in the bays, experience the wonderful scenery of Phu Quoc by taking a drive on wide roads around the beautiful island, sit in a hammock and admire the sparkling cobalt sea with squeaking white sand or just lazily lie on the white sand along the beach, indulge in a massage and dine on fresh seafood. All of these activities will take you to the fullest charm of Phu Quoc. For food lovers, a chance to sample high-quality fish sauce (nuoc mam) and black pepper - the island’s most valuable crop will be the highest expected moment.
