Vietnam's Phu Quoc
Phu Quoc is a beautiful island and a tourist attraction paradise. If you are planning the upcoming Phu Quoc trip but do not know where to start, how to go, etc. Let's take a look at the full Phu Quoc travel experiences below.
Introduction of Phu Quoc tourism
Phu Quoc is an island featuring forests, mountains, and sea with an area of 1320 square kilometers, a length of 48 kilometers from north to south, and a population of about 80,000 people. Phu Quoc island is located in the Gulf of Thailand which is 45 km west of Ha Tien.
This is also the largest island in the Gulf of Thailand, Phu Quoc is actually closer to Cambodia—just 9 miles away—than to mainland Vietnam. Cambodia lays a competing claim to the island, which is why the Vietnamese keep a substantial military presence there. (Much of Phu Quoc, in fact, is off-limits to the public.) Stretching 30 miles, north to south, it is roughly the size of Singapore, but it has only 85,000 residents to Singapore’s 4.5 million. In 2001, nearly one-third of the island—including 35,000 acres of primeval forest—was designated a national park. From the air, Phu Quoc registers as a bright-green paint drop, ringed by flecks of ivory, splashed on a turquoise canvas. People compare its shape to a conch shell. Others see a kingfish twisting its tail. Still others will say that Phu Quoc looks like a fat green wad of money. For if all goes according to the official plan, this quiet backwater could become the next Phuket.
Distance of 15 km south of Cambodia, Phu Quoc owns the most beautiful beaches, and delicious seafood dishes. The mountain and forest system in Phu Quoc has created a wonderful resort with white sandy beaches and ancient fishing villages.
