Cao Dai Temple

Reviewed By Jolana H - Prague, Hlavni Mesto Praha, Czech Republic

This place has a great and calm atmosphere. There aren't any tourists at all, the only distraction from the piece is a kindergarten, but it was more cute than bothering. There is no entrance fee.

Tranh Stream

Reviewed By jingying1101 - Singapore, Singapore

Make sure you wear the right shoes otherwise it will be impossible to go up during rainy season. It's just a short climb up (20 minutes) but worth it!

Floating Village Rach Vem

Reviewed By SainBanuu - Los Angeles

Getting there on a scooter was just a bit on the challenging side but well worth it. Since few tourists will make the effort, you will be rewarded with a different kind of experience. Upon arrival, the "village" looks rather desolate. You have to get onto one of the Bridges that lead to the overwater restaurants. There is no entertainment, nothing really exciting. It's "just" about having lunch over the sea but that, in itself, is priceless.

Su Muon Pagoda

Reviewed By DanielaKLI - Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Su Muon Pagoda is a small pagoda. If you live in Asia, or if you have already travelled quite a lot in Asia, you will not be particularly enchanted or surprised. But if you are passing by the pagoda anyway, it is worth to stop and have a look.

Duong Dong Market

Reviewed By Matthew L - Iver, United Kingdom

Crowded, busy, bustling, brilliant place to watch life at its craziest.
Market stalls, restaurants, bars and street entertainers mashed up together in an eclectic mix of races and cultures.
Yes it is touristy but there are far more locals here than you would expect.
There are fascinating tanks full of every kind of seafood you could imagine ready to be prepared for the plate.
Seek out the 'chop chop' ice cream stalls for a unique take on a sweet treat.
A street entertainer inserting a snake into his nose and pulling it out of his mouth, right next to squid cooked on a BBQ grill does not seem out of place.
Mopeds carrying two, three, four people winding their way through the throngs of people.
This is not a place for the feint hearted and I suggest not a place for very young children.
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, so much I went twice!
The only reason it doesn't score higher is the lack of variety of souvenirs available.
This is however a must visit place if you are in Phu Quoc.

Long Beach

Reviewed By Pantagraal - Bristol, United Kingdom

This beach is aptly named. It is quite narrow with a gentle decline in the water and a few places where the sand is broken up by a few rocks.
It’s saving graces are. It is subtropical, there are lots of restaurants and bars on it and it is west facing. However it is somewhat smelly, pipes (probably surface water drains) go into it and the planning process - in terms of what has been built at the back- can only be described as garbage enhancing. There are a couple of smart places eg the Sofitel La Veranda but their grooming cannot overcome the basic fact: it is a rather squalid place through lack of proper care and respect. It is the epitome of why people say they don’t want to return to Vietnam.
What a dreadful shame....

Coi Nguon Museum

Reviewed By Kevin C - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

This museum was truly quiet when we visited (in one afternoon) where we practically 'have the whole museum to ourselves'!
The entrance fees are cheap (only US0.50) -
It was operated privately, i guess, with collection from the owner -- it does tell some history of Phu Quoc -- but the way they display it somehow lacked of 'museum professionalism' and need improvement -- it will be great if they get professional museum curator to help up!
In addition, the maintenance level of the museum are quite poor as well -- it could have been improved.
However, on certain level/floor, you may step out and view the lovely seaview on the balcony, which is nice.

Phu Quoc Express

We pround of being the reliable company offer you the trip to Phu Quoc or from Phu Quoc to Mainland such as : Phu Quoc – Rach Gia or Phu Quoc – Ha Tien where you keep travelling to Mekong deltal or Cambodia . With all this on offer we think it is fair to say that there has never been a better time to plan a trip now with Phu Quoc Express Boats.

Reviewed By TrulyVietnam2017 - Phu Quoc Island, Vietnam

You can reach for Phu Quoc island by Phu Quoc Express boat service. The journey now takes only 2 hours on a very luxury comfortable hydrofoil equipped with modern decorations and meeting the international standard.
