The Ho Quoc Pagoda (also known as Chùa Hộ Quốc or Chùa Hộ Quốc) is the largest Buddhist temple on Phu Quoc Island. Officially inaugurated on December 14, 2012, this spectacular temple is perched at the base of a lush mountain that faces the sea and the rising sun.
The Ho Quoc Pagoda was inspired by Mahayana architecture and is part Buddhist temple, part monastery (Thiền Viện Trúc Lâm), and part eco-tourism site. The temple grounds are continuously undergoing renovations and is in a constant state of construction. The total area of the temple grounds is roughly 110 hectares and as of 2017, 13% of that area has been developed. The Chùa Hộ Quốc Phú Quốc pagoda is an architectural masterpiece and one of the wonders of Phú Quốc Island.

Duong Dong is Phu Quoc's largest town and it is located along on the western coast of Phu Quoc island. Duong Dong is famous for its mighty river that bears the same name, temples, fish sauce factories, pepper farms, and of course the plentiful accommodation options available at all price points. Duong Dong is a busy urban place but there is electricity in the air. The town comes alive after the sun has set.
Nested in between Phu Quoc's two major towns (Duong Dong and An Thoi) lies Duong To, a vast central area that is home to the Bai Truong Tourist Complex, Phu Quoc's main tourist area.
