The reasons why you should travel Phu Quoc one time

Curated by BuffaloTripSeptember 28, 2015 Viewed: 1092

Fringed with white-sand beaches and with large tracts still cloaked in dense, tropical jungle, Phu Quoc rapidly morphed from a sleepy island backwater to a must-visit beach escape for Western expats and sun-seeking tourists. Beyond the resorts lining Long Beach, it’s still largely undeveloped, so there's ample room for exploration and escaping. Dive the reefs, kayak in the bays, eat up the back-road miles on a motorbike, or just live the life of a lotus eater by lounging on the beach, indulging in a massage and dining on fresh seafood.

Here are some reasons why you should travel Phu Quoc one time.

1. Phu Quoc people very kind and hospitable. When you come here, you can assure that it does not have tight guillotine like somewhere else. Eventhough in the morning, if you go buy something but you bargain unsuccessful, unsatisfied and you leave without buying, they do not say anything because there is not dual pricing.

2. There is no fear of theft, you can rent a motorbike without a deposit (just tell them your name and hotel room).

3. When you ask for directions or restaurants, people will show you enthusiastically without fear of fraud. They of course will not ask you anything but you should remember the name of restaurant not address or number because Phu Quoc people are unfamiliar to mention to this.

4. The beautiful and unspoiled beaches: Phu Quoc has 130km sea route so it is obvious that the sand of the beach is very white and the water is blue, especially star beach (Bai Sao).
