Phu Quoc Island

Orientation

The island of Phu Quoc is 48 kilometres in length from north to south and has a population of around 80,000. Situated in the Gulf of Thailand, it is 45 kilometres from the border town of Ha Tien and just 15 kilometres south of the coast of Cambodia. The northeast is heavily forested and includes the Phu Quoc National Park.

Most of the action happens around Duong Dong town on the central western coast. Most of the tourist infrastructure is located on Bai Truong or Long Beach. The main strip is Tran Hung Dao and this is where you will find the bulk of tour operators, ATMs and hotels. Pretty much every hotel and resort have WiFi on premises.

Duong Dong has a hospital but you will need a translator to help you out. We suggest flying out to Ho Chi Minh City or Singapore where better medical facilities are available if you need anything serious looked at.

Motorbike rental is readily available and prices seem to be arbitrary depending on where you go. Expect to be charged anywhere from 150,000 VND to 200,000 VND per day. Make sure to note any dings or scrapes on the bike – or take some photos -- as some unscrupulous rental shops will try to charge you for pre-existing damage.
