Phu Quoc Island

After a 45 minutes flight south from Ho Chi Minh City we arrived at the sunny island of Phu Quoc. From the air port we went to the southern beach where I had booked a bungalow at a beach resort.

We got a bungalow just 50 meters from the beach with a fantastic view and a garden full of palm trees, so we immediately liked Phu Quoc.

During the next days we visited the northern beach, that was even more fantastic than the south, the sand was extremely fine and white and the sea was more calm almost giving it a lagoon feel to the beach.

On the way we visited the American prison camp which is a museum today. The museum gave an insight into the life and conditions of the prisoners during the war, this of course was horrible to realize how it was managed.

On the way back to the resort we stopped at the famous fish sauce factory that produce fish sauce for the whole world that Phu Quoc is so famous for.

Phu Quoc is the only Island in Vietnam where foreigners can own land, and there are still some for sale, so we ctually consider if we should place a bid on that. That is how good a holiday we had there.
