May 25 is not only the date when our GDPR policy has been updated, but it is also International Child Missing Day, and as such we want to highlight a particularly disturbing business in Phu Quoc: Buddy Boutique – a store trying to portray an image of luxury in Duong Dong that has been caught selling counterfeit products for the past 3 years, as reported/photographed by tourists and verified by international luxury brands.
This store is under the direction of the same owner who sells advertisements in his “Visit Phu Quoc” guidebooks and maps and has knowingly been selling fake products – no “I didn't know it was illegal” excuse is applicable, plus the owner is an old foreigner educated expat who should know better.
Selling counterfeit products is not only illegal worldwide, but it is also linked to child trafficking. Any business that supports Visit Phu Quoc, knowing full well that they engage in numerous unethical activities, are not welcome to be part of our journey to make Phu Quoc the top tourist destination in South East Asia.
