Ham Minh fishing village is one of the famous tourist places in Phu Quoc attracting a lot of visitors every year. Especially, the fishing village still retains the simple, pristine look of the countryside that has not been affected much by tourism activities.

Perhaps no one can answer that question when this simple village of Phu Quoc appears; just know that when people discover the pearl island, the villagers there have been engrossed in fishing, with small houses to shelter from the sun and rain by the sea.

And this village has witnessed so many changes of heaven and earth, how many times the sea rises and sinks, and plenty of times when storms came, but the fishing village Ham Ninh is still stable until today.
