Phu Quoc Island Vietnam Hotel Accommodation Hotels Guide
Phu Quoc, the largest island in Vietnam, lies in the Gulf of Thailand,
45 km from Ha Tien and 15 km south of the coast of Cambodia. Phu Quoc
Island, part of Kien Giang province, is also part of an archipelago consisting
of 22 islands of all sizes. The island covers an area of 585 km2 and is
50 km long.
The population underwent a sudden increase in the last twenty years;
there are 55,000 people inhabiting the island now whereas there were no
more than 5,000 people in 1975.
Phu Quoc is also called the Emerald Island because of its natural treasures
and infinite tourism potential. The island is well known for its high-quality
fish sauce; Phu Quoc fish sauce smells particularly good since it is made
from a small fish, ca com, with a high level of protein. The island produces
6 million liters of fish sauce every year.
Phu Quoc Island has many harbors such as An Thoi and Hon Thom where international
and domestic ships anchor. Also, there are several historical sites on
the island: National Hero Nguyen Trung Truc's military base, Gia Long
King relics from the time he spent on the island, and Phu Quoc prison.
Off the coast of the island emerges a group of 105 islands of all sizes.
Some of them are densely inhabited such as Hon Tre and Kien Hai, 25 km
from Rach Gia. Visitors can spend time on the beach or hike while observing
the wild animals. Below you will find a comprehensive listing of Phu Quoc
