    Photos of Phu Quoc Island, Vietnam

    For years, Vietnam's Phu Quoc Island has been one of the region's better kept secrets -- and while the secret is well and truly out, it will be a few years yet before the developers really get stuck into it. In the meantime, you've got a tremendous opportunity to see one of the region's prettiest islands without needing to share it with the tourist hordes. Phu Quoc boats some massive stretches of undeveloped beach, some with glistening white sand, diving and snorkelling opportunities, outstanding seafood and a range of accommodation from $10 backpacker havens right through to boutique resorts. If you're planning an itinerary for Vietnam and Phu Quoc isn't on it, we'd say that plan need some re-planning -- and here's some photos to hopefully swing the deal. Enjoy.

While the museum is a monument to the region's history and an excellent primer for those planning on a visit to My Son, there is far more to Da Nang and for those with time on their hands, it's more than worth a night. Following are some photos of Da Nang, My Khe Beach and the Marble Mountains -- hopefully they'll have you pencilling in a night -- or two. Enjoy.
