Knowing where to remain is a must for an unforgettable holiday on Vietnam's biggest island if this is your first time on Phu Quoc Island. Located 45 kilometers south of Ha Tien, in the northern portion, Phu Quoc offers green hills and distinctive fauna, while in the southern end, pristine beaches and local villages. Accessible by ferry and plane, Phu Quoc Island is a famous holiday destination among international tourists because for stays of up to 30 days they do not require a visa. There are plenty of accommodation choices for the wealthy, ranging from cheap bungalows for families traveling to expansive five-star resorts.
Duong Dong is Phu Quoc Island's primary city, where you can find many hotels, restaurants, bars, banks, pharmacies, and tour businesses. Phu Quoc International Airport is located at the northern end of this coastal town while pepper plantations and fish sauce factories are housed in the southern end. Duong Dong Market is a must-see for those who want to mix with local people, shop for fresh produce, and sample cheap local delicacies.
Ong Lang Beach is great for travelers who prefer a quiet vacation on Phu Quoc Island with a nice combination of luxurious and mid-range resorts with private beach locations. Accessible from Duong Dong in a 20-minute drive, it includes a series of rocky stretches with countless coconut trees, she-oaks and shade-providing banyan trees. Besides sunbathing on the smooth white sands, tourists can enjoy various operations such as kayaking, snorkelling, diving and day trips to the islets offshore. Nightlife is restricted to hotel-owned bars and lounges, but near the access point to the beach you can find local restaurants and hawker stalls.
Long Beach has 20 kilometers of white sand and clear waters, making it Phu Quoc Island's most famous beach. Due to its west coast place, you can discover famous beachfront resorts, restaurants, cafes and bars with amazing sunset views. While exploring Long Beach on foot is simple, renting a motorcycle or bicycle is perfect if you want to discover traditional fishing villages and pearl farms on the beach's southern end.
