Phu Quoc Island off the southern Vietnamese province of Kien Giang boasts romantic sunsets, evergreen forests, delicious seafood, and a mild climate that all make it an ideal holiday destination for travelers who hope to relax on its idyllic beaches and explore the 21 nearby islets that make up Phu Quoc City.

Spanning a total area of 574 square kilometers, the island – Vietnam’s largest – sits just 45 kilometers off the west coast of Ha Tien, a famous beach city in Kien Giang Province. 

Accessing the island is relatively easy. Visitors can choose between a 45-kilometer express boat ride from Ha Tien City or a 120-kilometer sea journey from Rach Gia, which is Kien Giang’s capital city.

Those who do not have their sea legs can opt from a domestic flight or one of the ten international routes currently connecting Phu Quoc with Russia, China, Singapore, South Korea, and several European countries.
