Here is my three-day-one-night trip in Phu Quoc experience.
There are several ways to get there such as by plane, bus, or boat.
From Ho Chi Minh city, I took a flight to Phu Quoc island. It takes about 50 minutes.
After arriving in Phu Quoc, I took a bus to my resort. In the afternoon, I went to Lang Chai Ham Ninh (Ham Ninh fishing village). They have a diversity of seafood. You can choose and buy some fresh crabs, snails, etc. Then, you should go to Suoi Tranh if you want to do some exercise like rock climbing, or dipping yourself in this waterfall. Also, this is a stunning background for you to take photos. If you have a chance to visit Phu Quoc, you do not want to miss Pepper Gardens – one of their specialities. The Phu Quoc pepper is significant flavorful. You can purchase fresh pepper at the place and bring it home so you will have a farm-to-table ingredient! Organic and hang-picking pepper! My next stop is The Sim Wine producer. Unlike other Western wines, Sim wine contains an unique flavor that unable to describe. They provide free samples at the place, if you like it, take a bottle home! If you are interested in the local religion as well as history, Dinh Cau is your next destination. After a long day of traveling, you may want spend a night to relax at your hotel/resort or go around the island.
Wake up early in the morning to see the sunrise is an unforgettable thing to do when you visit Phu Quoc. In the second day, you’d like to spend all your energy to the outdoor activities. First of all, you can visit and learn how they raise and harvest natural pearls. They are willing to introduce you the process, and show you how they collect the pearl. After that, this is an exciting activity of the day. In An Thoi Harbor, you can see the dynamic of Phu Quoc residents, go diving, and fishing in the middle of the ocean!
Before going back to Ho Chi Minh city, you will not want to miss Phu Quoc Vinpearl Land. It is a new amusement park of Vietnam with a lot of attractions. It has the safari, aquarium, and mermaid shows!
Some tips to travel to Phu Quoc:
Phu Quoc has three main streets which are:
1. Tran Hung Dao street: This is where you can find most of the hotels and resorts with a beach views.
2. 30/4 Street (30/4 pronounces like a date: ba muoi thang tu): the street food with better deals than the night market.
3. Hung Vuong street: intersection with the 30/4 street which leads to the airport, and other attractions.
