Vietnam: Phu Quoc Island

Falling to sleep on Phu Quoc Island Oct 2011; this place is so chilled, there is not much else to do. It reminds me of Thailand 25 years ago without the hippy invasion and flee markets. There is a sleepy port (Duong Dong) with local market, and fresh fish that you can get  barbecued in the night market nearby. There is a waterfall, a pepper farm (the pepper is really famous here, and tastes delcious and lemony and worth buying as gifts) and good diving (I suggest you use Rainbow Divers). Rent a motor bike and pottor over the pot holes around the Island exploring and go walking in the National Park up North. Or just chill and go to sleep a lot like me.

I’m staying at: La Veranda Resort, which is well worth the money compared to what I have seen at other resorts.

Touring from here: you can get a boat and travel up the Mekong Delta to Ho Chi Minh City. Or from Ho Chi Minh travel down the Delta to here.
