Interesting and sobering place which is well worth 30 minutes of your time. Its self guided so first have a look inside at the exhibition before walking around the prison itself.

Located in AnThoi. It really is an eye opening experience. Have to be in the right mood. The worst enemy that a human being has is another human being! This was one of my "have to see" things on this holiday. The signs are positive. The figures are not in their best shapes anymore. The upkeep should be taken care... More

About a 20 minute Pleasant ride from Long Beach area via motorbike or taxi. A short video presentation in a small museum prepares for your walk among the many prison barracks. This is a self touring prison that is very informative. Be sure to take sun protection because there are no shaded areas during your walk around. No admission fee.

Another reminder of a dark time in history. Worth a quick visit and walk around to ensure that we never forget the horrors and trauma of war. If you are going to Sao Beach, take the time for a quick detour and have a walk around. Leave a donation to help with future upkeep (no admission price).

Good to see the other side of the Vietnam conflict. Pretty old and not American standards for a tour. Worth seeing and getting a different perspective.

This a free museum so of course it's not got bells and whistles but it does explain and demonstrate the horrors of the prison and the experience of the POW's. We spent about an hour or so here and found it really interesting to walk around the site and see /read about the horrific tortures and deaths that happened here.... More

Go visit this rustic museum to get reminded how cruel man can be. It is a very basic museum, but very realistic.

Great place the learn about what happened in the phu quoc prison. Although it's a self led tour, there are plenty of signs with descriptions of what happened during those times. The sculptures of the Americans and Vietnamese depicts scenes of torture from within the prison. There's also a secret tunnel that leads from one bunker to the outside world.... More
