Pepper farms, fish sauce factories, Sim liquor winery, fresh seafoods and BEAUTIFUL beaches are the must when you come to Phu Quoc.
Visited Phu Quoc Pepper Farm “Country Side”. The guide showed us around pepper farm in English and let us taste fresh pepper from the pepper vines. I never knew pepper grows like this! The taste of fresh pepper was amazing that’ll be remembered even I come back to Tokyo. There’s also Phu Quoc’s craft beer “Kinh beer” brewery. Smooth dark ale tastes like Guinness. It’s my first time to have dark ale made in southeast Asia. The pretty flowers (of Sim liquor) are also there!
The latest pics/vids from the Phu Quoc Night market
If you’re a Seafood lover, Night Market is just amazing. Even it’s not on weekends, there’re many seafood places open.
I was surprised that one staff at the front(Fusion) didn’t know if it’s open on weekdays and instead tried to make us go to a fancy but quite ordinary restaurant for us living in Tokyo. I’d say the experiences at the night Market is what we really expect. We never get this style restaurants in Tokyo.
You can easily catch a taxi around here to get back to your hotel but make sure to prepare written memo of where you’re staying, or use Siri/Google voice to go back. Almost impossible to communicate with local taxi drivers.
Phu Quoc is Vietnam’s cash cow island tourist destination, and unfortunately it does attract unsavory characters who are looking to take a big slice out of your wallet. Learn about all the current scams and protect yourself from having a bad vacation.
Coming to Phu Quoc? Then check out this map, already used by almost 40,000 visitors. This is the original interactive map embedded with videos of all the attractions found on the island which we personally took.
Plan your trip accordingly and enjoy Vietnam’s resort island.
Coming to Phu Quoc from a western country? If so, bring a book or comic in the English language, new or used, and give it to a young local. They may use it or they may sell, but since English language books are a rare commodity in Vietnam, they will definitely not end up in the trash.
Books are light and easy to pack… and, well… it is Christmas time.
Take a step further and find books that talk about environmental protection, recycling, the beauty of nature, wildlife, etc. Thrift stores are a gold mine 🙂
