8 Famous Tourist Attractions In Phu Quoc Island To Visit

Phu Quoc Island has become a famous tourist destination in Vietnam for relaxing on beautiful beaches and exploring typical sea culture.

Here are the top attractions in this island city of Phu Quoc to check them out.

1. Hon Thom (Pineapple Islet)

Hon Thom is located 7km in the South of Phu Quoc island, around 37 km far away from Duong Dong Town.

The top natural highlights of this islet include the stretching white sand beaches, coral reefs, slanting coconut trees facing the ocean, and clean seawater that you can see the fish swimming around.

Besides, Vinpearl Grand World Phu Quoc, one of the big amusement parks in Vietnam, can give you exciting experiences with plenty of games, such as water park activities and the first wooden roller coasters in Vietnam.

However, in my opinion, the top attracts me from the long cable car from An Thoi to Hon Thom, where I can enjoy the beautiful view of the ocean mixed with the green trees of these islands. Additionally, Hon Thom gives me peaceful roads running curved on the islet and clean beaches instead of the modern amusement here.

2. Bai Sao (Starfish Beach)

Also located in South Phu Quoc, Bai Sao belongs to Bai Sao Hamlet, An Thoi Ward, Phu Quoc City, Kien Giang Province, Vietnam. Bai Sao has become a typical place to explore starfish and enjoy 7km of white sand with coconut plants looking romantic during the sunset.

This region is a public beach, so you can swim and interact with local people who sell souvenirs and toddy-palm drinks. Take a seat and sip a cold drink to look at the blue ocean! What a wonderful time!

Typically, you may see a few Phu Quoc ridgeback dogs running around and sometimes swimming with their owners in the sea.

3. Vinpearl Safari Phu Quoc

With an area of 380 hectares, Vinpearl Safari Phu Quoc has become one of the biggest semi-wildcare and conservation parks in the world.

This attraction is in Ganh Dau Commune, Phu Quoc District, Kien Giang Province. And, it is around 23 km from the busiest Duong Dong city on this island. Using a taxi or a specific bus is convenient to travel to this place.

Visit this well-known park is one of the fun things to do in Phu Quoc because you can enjoy a unique animal circus and explore Vietnamese animals and others from many other countries.

This tourist destination of Phu Quoc can give you a good chance to learn more about animal life in wild nature while you are on a bus. A few animals, such as tigers or rhinos, are curious to come right in front of your tourist buses. So, the Vinpearl Sarafi is suitable for family travel on this island.

4. Ham Ninh Fishing Village

As a rustic place, Ham Ninh fishing village has the tranquil scenery of a fishing area. You can feel the peace that exudes in the daily life of the locals, mainly spending all day in the ocean and preparing the tools for the next catching fish trip.

The most beautiful time in Ham Ninh fishing village is at sunset or the dawn. The poor life of fishermen becomes busier when they prepare to come to the sea to put fishing nets in the water; or begin to bring the fresh sea fish, crabs, and squids back to their ladies to sell.

During that time, the village can give you a peaceful feeling. The simple life, small homes, and typical stilt houses in the light yellow lights seem to eat all your mind and chaotic thoughts. Let’s visit it to feel it!

5. Dinh Cau Cape

Dinh Cau Cape, a small destination in Phu Quoc, is a walkway with a short distance of nearly 300m right in front of Dinh Cau Temple – which is only 500 meters from the Phu Quoc Night Market.

The most beautiful feature here comes with the sunset when all the regions of the sea, temple, and lighthouse become more romantic in peaceful view.

During the sunset, standing on the Dinh Cau Cape can give you beautiful photos with a dreamy scenery background that covers a large space of ocean spotted a few boats.

Because of the small spot for visiting, it takes you not long to spend time here. But, the top thing to notice is that you need to come here at the right time of sunset for beautiful photos.

6. Suoi Tranh Waterfall

Suoi Tranh Waterfall belongs to the National Park of Phu Quoc and is on the east side of the island.

Suoi Tranh is also a small attraction in Phu Quoc Island, but Vietnamdrive would like to mention it because this place can make your journey get various colors instead of only spending time on the luxury resorts in Phu Quoc.

Luckily, for the last few years, a company has invested in developing the area around Suoi Tranh Waterfall to become a modern tourist place, which supports visitors to explore this stream easily.

Washing in the stream and taking pictures are the main activities for almost all tourists when coming here.

7. Tuan Viet Pepper Garden

Phu Quoc can be considered the home of peppers in Vietnam because it has high-quality products with fragrant flavors.

Thus, you can find many pepper gardens on Phu Quoc Island; however, Vietnamdrive’s team chose Tuan Viet Pepper Garden (TL47, Duong To, Phu Quoc, Kien Giang) because it is near Duong Dong Town – only 3 km and around 14km from Phu Quoc Airport.

Visiting the pepper garden can take only 30 – 50 minutes, so you should combine this typical attraction with other places.

When stopping at Tuan Viet Pepper Garden, you can see how peppers are grown, and it is a chance to try green peppers to know their hot taste and chew fresh red peppers to find the sweet taste and hot feeling.

8. Thinh Phat Fish Sauce Factory

Thinh Phat Fish Sauce Factory is located at Road 30, Quarter 1, Duong Dong Town, Phu Quoc District, Kien Giang Province, Vietnam.

This private factory produces fish sauce following the traditional methods, which is the core reason that Vietnamdrive chooses it as an attraction on Pearl Island.

The impression comes from the big wooden barrels with dark red colors and fishy fish sauce smells. You can see fish sauce directly run from these barrels and buy tasty fish sauce bottles as typical gifts from Phu Quoc Island.

What do you wait for? Range your time to fly to the Phu Quoc Airport directly to start your holidays there and explore plenty of charming tourist sites.
