Di Tích Nhà Tù Phú Quốc - "Coconut Tree Prison"
The cruelties of war can be revisited at the Phu Quoc Prison, also known as the Coconut Tree Prison, which was once the largest prisoner complex detaining more than 30,000 prisoners back in 1973. Located in between Bai Sao and Bai Kem, two of the islands white sand beaches, the Phu Quoc Prison is an eye opening and must-see attraction while visiting the island district. The prison / concentration camp has been decommissioned and is now a national historical site which consists of an indoor war museum and an outdoor prison complex complete with jail cells, mannequins, and escape tunnels all which aim to re-create what life was like here when the prison was in use.
