Phu Quoc travel experience: where to go? What play? How much does it cost? Summer is a good time to bombard island paradise in Vietnam. In this article, I will share interesting Phu Quoc travel experiences to make your summer trip easier. Let’s run away from the annoying heat of the city to the gentle sunshine by the cool sea breeze of Phu Quoc!
1. Transportation when traveling to Phu Quoc
There are many vehicles that can help you get to Phu Quoc Island but the most common are passenger cars, bullet trains and airplanes.
Coach is a very reasonable choice if your budget is limited but want to “wake up early in the morning”. Another interesting point is that you can freely watch the roadside and watch the blue sea, floating clouds.
- Advantages: cheap.
- Cons: time consuming and need to convert media.
Firstly, the bus will move to Kien Giang pier, where you have to go to the island by high speed train. You can choose popular car companies like Phuong Trang, Mai Linh, Tuyet Hon … Coming to the station, you will see some high-speed train companies to Phu Quoc: Superdong, hoabinhship and phuquocexpress.
One way bus fares range from VND 120,000, taking about 6 hours for the route from Ho Chi Minh City to Rach Gia, Kien Giang. High-speed trains are more expensive, one-way tickets range from VND 330,000 ~ VND 350,000. The boat runs to Phu Quoc Island for about 2 hours more. Thus, the total time for a road trip combining this sea will be about 8-9 hours if not counting the time of the line
My Phu Quoc travel experience shows that aircraft is a great choice.
- Pros: Fast, time-saving.
- Disadvantages: Air ticket price from time to time.
Popular airlines to Phu Quoc include: Vietnamairline, Vietjetair, Bambooairways, Jestar, … Especially if you are lucky to hunt cheap flights or catch a few big promotions of some airlines, it is too great. Sometimes a one way trip is only 500,000VND, by the cost of ride and high-speed train always. Travel time to Phu Quoc from Ho Chi Minh City takes only 1 hour and from Hanoi or Hai Phong only 2 hours.
2. How to get around?
Coming to Phu Quoc we can choose transportation options such as rent a motorbike or taxi. If you go with a big family you can contact the hotel to book a car to help the whole family with Phu Vu in offline!
This is the most popular and convenient means of transportation. A motorbike can take us to explore anywhere, bombard every corner of Phu Quoc at any time. Especially to say that the price of renting a car in Phu Quoc is also easy to breathe, ranging from 120,000-200,000 VND / day depending on scooter or gear. Moreover, some rental services also allow pick up and drop off at the airport, very attractive right? The procedure for renting a car is also very simple, just need a copy of the ID card with the original for comparison and the deposit is complete, cheap and scary.
One important note is that in Phu Quoc, not all places have a parking lot for motorbikes, so we need to pay attention to the car so that it is easy to observe and lock the car carefully. But don’t worry too much because Phu Quoc is an island, all around the sea, if the car is stolen, the thief will be caught within a few notes because he cannot disperse material evidence ^^ ~
Rent a taxi:
If you are afraid of sunshine, afraid of rain, and still want to conquer Phu Quoc, then choose taxis because it will help you dispel concerns about the weather, so it saves energy. Currently the number of taxis in Phu Quoc is quite crowded, 4 seats 7 seats are enough. Prices are not much different from the mainland. However, the places to visit or the beaches in Phu Quoc are quite far apart so you should consider the budget.
If you go to a group or a family, there won’t be much to divide. Or with a different option with a taxi to each point, stop calling the new car there and you can negotiate with the driver about the places you want to go and close a reasonable price, if the two sides “drab” In terms of price, we have just negotiated a contract to go to places we like with a reasonable price. Calculating a taxi is also an interesting option, right?
Rent a bicycle:
It sounds a bit strange, right? If you want to enjoy the lightness, not noise, leisurely, want to slow down with the friendly Phu Quoc residents, the bike sounds good. Most resorts will have bicycles available for you to rent or rent, or you can also ask staff to help. Average price is about 100,000 VND / day. Bicycles are also diverse, regular bicycles, double bicycles, terrain vehicles … all kinds of colors like Phu Quoc Lake san.
Even stranger than bicycles is the tram. This type of move promises to bring many interesting and new things. It’s well worth our new experience in Phu Quoc, right? After all, there are many great things in Vietnam that I don’t know yet: “> Book a car through the switchboard: 0326 301 301.
3. Where in Phu Quoc
This is also the most concerned issue when traveling everywhere not just Phu Quoc. But especially in an island far from the mainland, being afraid is not true as being sad all day. Phu Quoc travel experience should first look at what our purpose to this beautiful island is! Vacation or playboy?
The place that can be called the center of Phu Quoc is Duong Dong town in the middle of the island, to the west of the island. It is also home to the most concentrated hotels, and ranges from cheap to high-end. In Duong Dong, it is very convenient for traveling, eating, shopping and walking at night. However, because it is the center, the ground is quite limited, there are not too many luxury resorts concentrated here.
The road from Duong Dong to Duong To is called Tran Hung Dao, there are also quite a lot of hotels and resorts but not very special. So if you like something a bit dynamic and especially like to eat, choose this area.
The central area of Dinh Cau is only motels, guest houses, homestays with low price for students and ordinary customers, so if the cost is limited, you can consider this area. That said, cheap as long as it is fun, go to a crowd to organize meetings, and dance together, right? 😀
If you come to Phu Quoc to enjoy the tranquility of the sea, want to relax after a series of busy days, the resort in the area below means the right side of the road from the center of Duong Dong down, is an option. excellent.
Resort in Phu Quoc can only be described by the top and the top of the peak. There are many resort options spread across Ong Lang and Bai Truong beaches but the quality is also very different. In fact, Phu Quoc is a “resort paradise”, so any area of Phu Quoc has resorts that can meet our needs.
You can book rooms at reputable websites and remember to review before deciding. Room rates vary from time to time and also depending on the area so it can fluctuate around 500,000-5,000,0000 / night.
4. Phu Quoc Travel Experience: Where To Go? What play?
Mong Tay is located in the north of Phu Quoc island – a place of convergence of pristine and beautiful natural places of this pearl island. Hon Tay Tay is hidden with a shipping route so few ships travel as well as people living, so this place is always as clear as pearl with fine white sand like heaven on earth.
Coming to Hon Nail Island, you will not be able to miss the diving repertoire to see colorful coral reefs and swimming fishes. Because the sea is very clear and the coral reefs here are quite shallow, you do not need to go far to admire. Don’t worry if you can’t swim.
Encourage you to go around the island by day tour because if you travel individually from An Thoi port to rent canoes or ships, the price is quite expensive if you go few people, while the day tour is only 200,000 VND – 300,000 VND only.
If you have a plan to go to Hon Mong Tay, then go to Gam Gui and Hon May Rut to give up. All 3 islands are in the top of the most beautiful places of Phu Quoc Island. And for those of you who are adventurous and want to see deeper marine ecosystems, snorkeling is a great choice for the sun.
Sunset Sanato Beach Club Phu Quoc
Honored in the golden table of the most beautiful sunset views of Phu Quoc, Sunset Sanato Beach Club is the check-in song-island-island on Jade Island. About 15km from Duong Dong, you can google the map if you ride a motorbike or call a taxi straight ahead. If you like “high by the beach” with cocktails and chill tracks, this is the place to go! The afternoon is the best time because you will have million photos of sunset like hihi!
To enter Sunset Sanato Beach Club Phu Quoc, you need to pay an entrance fee, which is quite soft compared to places with expensive locations in other coastal cities. VND 70,000 / ticket for weekdays and VND 100,000 / tickets for holidays.
Come to me, don’t forget to make a check-in kit at The Gate Keeper, the wooden house on the tree or the rainbow pastel stairs. If you are not a fan of photography, enjoying the romantic sunset is also very good.
Address: Bai Truong, Hamlet Hamlet, Duong To Commune, Phu Quoc.
Hon Thom is located in the northern part of Phu Quoc Island, located in the middle of the immense sea so extremely romantic and peaceful. From Duong Dong, it will take more than half an hour to move to An Thoi port, from here you take a train about 30 minutes to Hon Thom. If you do not like traveling on the sea, do not worry because Vietnam has the longest cable car system in the world connecting from An Thoi town to Hon Thom island. So convenient!
Hon Thom Beach is both clear and blue, there are many coral reefs so many people come here to snorkel. It is also possible to drive a water motor, canoe or scuba diving. If you choose to go diving, you should choose a tour because going to many places and accompanied by a professional guide will be more secure.
VinWonders Phu Quoc
In recent days, when mentioning Phu Quoc, people will not be surprised at the magnificence of the largest theme park in Vietnam – VinWonders Phu Quoc . With a total area of nearly 50 hectares, the park owns 6 subdivisions, equivalent to 6 territories and 12 different thematic areas inspired by human civilizations, world and Vietnamese fairy tales, Definitely a great place to spend the whole day having fun with your family and friends! Let’s go!
Sao Beach is also located in the south of the island, a favorite beach when traveling to Phu Quoc. The sand at Bai Sao dyed a smooth white like vanilla ice cream, along with the clear sea, blue sky, white clouds and shady coconut palms are a great resort for summer. There are not many restaurants so you can comfortably lay back on the beach, enjoy the cool breeze under the gentle sunshine of Pearl Island.
Besides resorting, eating and drinking, Sao Beach is also famous for its active summer games such as driving a motorbike, windsurfing, kayaking or scuba diving to watch corals. Very attractive team to Phu Quoc my dear home.
Ham Ninh fishing village
Of course, the “Phu Quoc travel experience” handbook will never lack a fishing village experience. Ham Ninh fishing village is an ancient village nestled at the foot of Ham Ninh mountain. People here live mainly by fishing and fishing, so it still retains the simple and primitive beauty of the countryside often seen in books and notebooks. Especially, the image of the sunset sky reflected in the glittering water makes “you write” to remember a scene in the story “The fishing village woman”.
Visiting and watching the peaceful beauty of Ham Ninh Fishing Village will leave you with a deeper memory of the pristine yet idyllic coastal countryside, different from the busy pace of life in the city. However beautiful or not depends on the weather and climate. Certainly, the experience and perspective of each person is different, if you like exploring the culture, this is a fishing village is an interesting place for you to learn.
5. Basic Costs When Traveling Phu Quoc
The cost is something very fluctuating, expensive – depending on the needs of each person. For example, I calculate the cost for 1 person in Phu Quoc will reach:
- TP plane tickets. HCM – Phu Quoc: 1,200,000 VND / round trip ticket
- Hotel: VND 250,000 – VND 700,000 / double / night room
- Day tour to discover the island: VND 200,000 – VND 1,500,000 / tour
- Eating: 300,000 VND – 500,000 VND / day (This varies most depending on the ability of each person to eat)
If you need to go to Safari World, Vinpearl Land or Hon Thom Cable Car, … you can book tickets in advance to save costs. So Phu Quoc trip is not too expensive, especially scuba diving in Phu Quoc is also quite cheap compared to other tourist waters in other countries. I wish you all a happy summer trip!
