Phu Quoc


  • Flight Time: 12 Hours
  • Time Zone: UTC +7:00
  • Best Time to Travel: November - July

Phu Quoc is an island off the coast of Cambodia in the gulf of Thailand that became part of Vietnam while the French administrated the region and has remained so ever since. It is very close to Cambodia - you can see the mainland from the North West of the island - but can be reached by fast boat in around from the Mekong Delta, or by plane from Saigon.

Due to the political sensitivity of the island it was largely dominated by the military for much of recent history and has only in the past decade or so begun to develop. As a result the majority of roads are unpaved and most of the island is covered in lush forest. The island remains a tranquil paradise, with just a smattering of hotels and resorts and many beautiful, quiet beaches that look out onto the calm glassy waters of the gulf of Thailand.

So far development on the island has been slow due to the cost of shipping materials to the island and the small airstrip limiting the size of plane that can land - and so the number of visitors that can fly to the island. There are plans in place to provide significant investment to the island to improve the infrastructure and transform Phu Quoc into one of Vietnams key beach destinations.
