2. Best Place To Island Hop In South East Asia

With 28 gorgeous islands for you to explore you are bound to find your perfect “Robinson Crusoe” type island equipped with your own patch of sand. Remember to pack your snorkeling gear as most of these islands are surrounding by coral teeming with life.



3. Easily Spot Wildlife

Many travelers are familiar with Phu Quoc’s magnificent islands, beaches, and temples, but Phu Quoc’s rainforests are also home to many bird and mammal species. Over 50% of Phu Quoc is a protected National Park and if you can wake up early enough you can easily spot beautiful animals next to the road like the Great Hornbill.



4. Sunsets Galore

Phu Quoc is home to some of the most picturesque sunsets imaginable. Every day on Phu Quoc ends with a colorful, slowly unfolding sunset.



5. Snorkel With Seahorses

Finally to close off our top 5 list is something most children dream of – seeing a seahorse bouncing across the sand in only a few feet of water. Seahorses, along with pipefish, belong to the family Synathidae and the odd shape of the seahorse is unmistakable. Surprisingly they are also poor swimmers making them easy to catch, which has its benefits and disadvantages. You can literally spend hours watching them underwater because they move so slowly and because of this they are easily caught and consumed due to their “supposed” health benefits. Phu Quoc is the only place in Vietnam where you can spot seahorses in just a few feet of water from the beach (see video below). See them in the wild while you can!
