Visited as part of a day tour for almost an hour. Quite educational as you learn how they extract the pearl from the shell and make many beautiful ornaments. Not many visitors around when we visited as the Covid 19 pandemic was just starting. On the 1st floor was a big showroom and there were lots of beautiful pearl products displayed. If you like pearls, this is the place for you.

We visit the pearl farm as our guide told us Phu Quoc Island is really much famous for pearl since years. We got chance to see the antiquities & oyster inside with pearl. Great information about how they culture the pearl from beginning to ending. We saw pearl powder as well. Different design for pearls. Many Vietnamese visit this place

The NZ management need to take all their staff on a course on how to treat customers properly and sell in a professional manner. We have just been there today and is a disgrace how they go about business. All the staff are young and totally unskilled on how to sell. They have no clue on what it takes and show a total disinterest. The body language does not encourage any interaction. I selected a necklace, some earrings and a pendant. While negotiating a price (I was offered a $5 discount on $400, $5!!! and she thought she was doing me a favour) the necklace was taken away by a colleague to be put in a box and replaced with a cheaper piece less than half the price. I saw it point blank and I told them so we just walked out. They knew they had been rumbled. Totally dishonest and if they can they will rip you off 100%. You have to avoid or have your eyes open at all times.

The "pearl farm" is basically a big pearl shop with absurd prices (really ridiculous prices, in HCMC you will find the same products for a tenth of the price).

You get there, and you see around 10 big tourist buses in the parking. You are given a badge with a number (because your taxi driver, who wears the same badge as you, will get a commission on whatever you buy).

You are forced into the shop, crowded and expensive. You get out, running. You eventually spot a table where a lady is opening oysters to show the tourists the pearls inside. She doesn't say a word. You ask for information (how old was the oyster, etc), and she answers in good English. So it is not a problem of language, it is simple lack of interest and professionalism. You can buy the tiny pearls from her at 200.000 vnd each. If you want to get at least one as a souvenir, please know that you will be stuck for an extra 15 minutes = the time for your taxi driver to go back to the shop and get his/her commission on the 200.000 vnd you just spent. It is an absurd tourist trap.

We wanted to see a pearl farm actually with no intention to go shopping but this place is just for buying pearls. However there is a lady opening fresh oysters showing how they get a pearl from it and you can even touch and hold the pearls. Still, we ended buying a pearl ring and earrings as they looked really beautiful and the price was reasonable (25€-32€), however those were among the cheapest you could get there. They also give you some certificate of authenticity in Vietnamese so I have no idea what is written in there. But I think it is safe to buy pearls in this place, they looked professional and we also saw some employees working on new pieces of pearl beauties directly in the shop.

We got recommended by our hotel as a must-see on the island.

Outside they provide a brief intro of types of pearls and how they harvest one. And inside it was not even close to a farm but a pearl shop instead that sells necklace, rings, earrings made with pearls.

Staff there was unwelcoming and unskilled. I bought a pair of earrings but they forgot one of the earring holder and I had to come back to demand one. Luckily they offered it rightaway, no-question-asked (but keep their bill with you, just in case)

I would not recommend a visit unless you wanna buy pearls.

Spent awhile choosing a pearl and necklace to buy - didn't check it as I assumed it was the one I'd chosen, bought it then when getting back later in the day I had a look at it and it's not what I chose - I chose a single pearl with a decorated attachment on pearl to go onto the chain, the one in box was plain with no detail at all - avoid this place or if purchasing make sure your chosen item is put into the box in front of you

Visited as part of a tour, spent 40 mins here. There were hundreds of visitors. On arrival, the staff explain the pearl growing process for a couple of minutes, after which you are directed to the product showroom. The supposed farm is in fact a large shop where the overpriced pearl products are displayed on sale.

Unless you really want to buy pearls, we would definitely advise anyone to avoid this place and spend the time on something else (you can just Youtube a couple of clams getting cracked open).
There's a nice beach and a chance to buy ice cream though.

Your experience may vary depending on which pearl farm your taxi driver/tour group operator decides to take you to. There's about a dozen different farms throughout the island, most of which are just pearl shops with high school aged girls in traditional ao dais following your wandering eyes as you look through their selection.

A few pearl farms are just that. If you're lucky enough to visit a real pearl farm, you'll be in for a little educational treat. Which oysters produce pink/black/creamy white/ultra white pearls? Their English language skills are far better than others and there's also English captions at various exhibits.

Would I buy anything here? No. Thrifty traveler aside, I found many pieces to be over the top and I honestly couldn't tell the difference between a high quality pearl sold here vs. one in a jewelry store/department store back in the states.

Well, why should you go? Because you'll probably be forced to make a stop. Tour operators and private taxi hires get a little kick back every time they take tourists to the shop (~50,000VND). If you end up renting a private taxi tour, you could potentially negotiate the number of stops or where you'd want to stop.

My wife and I visited this so called pearl farm as part of a day trip.
I thought it would be interesting to see how the farmed pearl process works.
What a mistake that was.
You get put into groups and wear a neck badge to identify your tour group.
Then you get rushed round the process from implanting the shell into the oyster, onto the shell sorting then the shell calving and finally what you are really there for, BUYING.
When you go past one of the processes there are boxes and boxes and boxes of round pearl shell balls, I find it very hard to believe they all come from that facility.
When you walk in to the huge shop the size of the whole second floor a sales person constantly follows you around, this not only makes you feel uncomfortable it gets very annoying very quickly.
When you even glance at an item in a case it’s opened and you get asked which one you want to purchase.
The pearls seem expensive, one necklace we saw was nearly £40000.
I don’t think anyone going on a organised coach trip is really in the market for that kind of product.
Tourist trap and a waist of time.
