Honeymoon in Phu Quoc Islands!

Phu Quoc Island lies just 45 kilometers west of Ha Tien and 15 km south of the Cambodian coast, it stretches 60 kilometers from north to south, and the best way to discover the island is on a moped. The strangely shaped Dinh Cau Rock at the mouth of the Duong Dong River is a symbol of Phu Quoc, and is a sacred, holy place. The legend says that two strong men who once ruled Phu Quoc was so generous and wise, people started to worship them on the cliff. Fishermen pray before they sailed, asking for their safe return with a good catch. Steps leading to the top of the cliff reward climbers with gentle breezes and glorious sunsets.

Phu Quoc Island is famous because of its two traditional products: fish sauce and black pepper. The rich fishing banks offshore make anchovy catch, which coveted the sauce is made. Pepper cultivation is located inland in the middle of the island. Recently, a pearl farm was established.

The beach stretches over 20 kilometers north to south, Long Beach runs down the west coast of Phu Quoc and grainy yellow sand is dotted with fishing villages, Bai Truong is lined for nearly its entire length by a grassy stretch and coconut palms.
