What to know before visiting Phu Quoc

Research weather, respect local customs, pack essentials, and embrace new flavors for a fulfilling travel experience.

Note

When planning a trip to Phu Quoc, both domestic and international tourists should consider the following tips to ensure a wonderful and safe experience:

  • Determine the Best Time to Visit: Phu Quoc has two main seasons - dry and rainy. The dry season, from November to April, is ideal for visiting due to cooler, less rainy weather.
  • Book Accommodations in Advance: Especially during peak season, booking ahead helps avoid full occupancy and provides more lodging options.
  • Check Passport and Visa Requirements: For international travelers, ensure your passport is valid for at least six months and check visa requirements based on your nationality.

Upon Arrival in Phu Quoc

  • Transportation on the Island: Plan your travel within the island. Renting a motorbike, bicycle, or using taxis and buses are good ways to explore the island.
  • Weather Precautions: Bring sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses to protect yourself from UV rays. During the rainy season, carry an umbrella or raincoat.
  • Food and Drink: Try local specialties like fresh seafood, but be mindful of food hygiene. Drink bottled water instead of tap water.

Culture and Customs

  • Respect Local Culture: Dress modestly when visiting religious and historic sites.
  • Communication: Some locals may not speak English, so learning a few basic Vietnamese phrases can be helpful.
  • Safety
  • Personal Safety: Keep your belongings secure and avoid carrying large amounts of cash or unnecessary valuables.
  • Health: Carry a basic first aid kit and have contact information for local healthcare facilities for emergencies. Be aware of health issues related to tropical climates, like heatstroke or insect bites.

Environmental Protection

  • Protect the Marine Environment: Avoid littering on the beaches and in the sea. Use eco-friendly sunscreen to protect coral reefs and marine life.
  • Sustainable Exploration: Prefer using sustainable tourism services and support local communities.

Special Experiences

  • Visit Popular Attractions: Don't miss places like Phu Quoc National Park, Coi Nguon Museum, and vibrant night markets.
  • Local Cultural Experiences: Participate in traditional activities like fishing, learn about fish sauce production, or enjoy local music performances.

Concluding the Trip

  • Souvenir Shopping: Purchase local products like Phu Quoc pepper, fish sauce, or handicrafts.
  • Feedback and Reviews: After your trip, share your experiences and feedback on the services you used to help improve future visitors' experiences.

By thoroughly preparing and adhering to these tips, your trip to Phu Quoc will not only be exciting and safe but also contribute to preserving the natural beauty and rich culture of the island. Enjoy every moment in this seaside paradise and create unforgettable memories.

The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are new and spacious. After traveling for two months in Vietnam we really appreciated the great showers and very comfortable beds. The location is pretty good, nice easy walk to town, and close to the beach. I wouldn’t call it beachfront as there are many restaurants between the hotel and the beach, and there are no beach chairs for the hotel, you have to rent them from the bar.

The resort was a fantastic place to stay, the staff and facilities were amazing. We rented a scooter and circumnavigated the island, the people are super friendly and helpful to tourists. A big thanks goes out to Tanny, Lan and Mr Ocean for helping to make our stay one that we will never forget. We will definitely be coming back and would recommend this resort for anyone looking for a 5 star relaxing break.

What a magical place! We didn’t want to leave ! The hotel is even more beautiful in reality versus the gorgeous pictures online. The food was varied and excellent. The sunset on the beach or from the rooftop pool is to die for. But that’s not the best part. What really marked the trip was the exceptional service. Special call out for Dora, F & B manager.

The colors and equipment in the house are good and have good visibility, large comfortable bedrooms, large living room and kitchen spaces that are very convenient for eating and relaxing. The toilet is always clean, we did not expect that in Vietnam there is a sunset town like Italy, many amenities around are very modern.

It was lovely and quiet, right on the beach and able to see sunset every night. Great pizza restaurant and a supermarket next door. It’s about 10 minute drive to night market and 10 from the airport. Planes coming in isn’t an issue as there aren’t too many anyway You can hire bikes to get around the island from The hotel.

The Shells resort is paradise, our villa was incredible as was the food, staff and facilities. Breakfast had many options and the local dinner menu had a large choice, and everything we tried was delicious. Prices are fair for the quality of the food and hotel, obviously more than if you left the resort.

We liked the location of the hotel. Our room was comfortable and private. The beach was stunning and a lovely place to relax. We ate at La Jardin on the beach, and the food was excellent. All the staff were helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend La Veranda

I had a quite pleasant stay in Sen Hotel, the room was spacious as expected, wifi was good and stable, tv had some English speaking channels, the hotel is within walking distance of the center of Duong Dong and not far from the public beach, plenty of restaurants nearby.
