With most travellers using Rach Gia as a transit point, there are plenty of hotels but not many you’d really want to stay in. Rach Gia is sprawling and there are hotels dotted throughout but if you’ve got a boat to Phu Quoc to catch, it does make sense to stay close to the quay and we’ve included three good options. South of the quay, across the bridge and along the coast, some new large and modern offerings have appeared, including recommendable Hoa Binh Resort.


Hoa Binh Resort
Midrange - US$20 to 50

T: (077) 355 3355
