A couple of questions

Hi,

We're planning on ending our holiday in Vietnam with a trip to Phu Quoc . We'd like to stay 5 nights but are a little concerned that this might be to long, is there much to do there?

We've priced our flights from HCMC with Vietnam airways, $160 each including taxes etc. Does anyone else fly there who we can compare prices with?

We like the look of the A74 Hotel, it seems to be the only reasonably priced hotel on the island with decent reviews.

Thanks for your help,

Pete.

Hi Sparkkzy,

Try Vietjet, They also fly there. Also make sure you are booking on the official VA website , as your ticket sounds a bit expensive.

Cheers

Phu Quoc is a quiet and not to touristified island. It's a typical relax on the beach in the end of your holiday kind a place. But there is many opportunities for short excursions on the island. Motorbiking around the island, visiting the old prison, checking out the Phu Quoc Pepper plantations and diving/snorkeling.

Yes 5 days may be a bit long if it is rainy season (May to Oct). The water is calm and clearer from November.

Thanks for your replies, very helpful.

We've tried Vietjet, they're $60 per person cheaper, nice one. We'll be going towards the end of November so hopefully the weather will be ok.

The reviews for Phuong Binh are excellent, does anyone know of a website for them? I can find no trace of them anywhere.

Thanks again,

Pete.

Hi Sparkszy, Phu Quoc Island is a nice relaxing change after a busy and active trip – very laid-back. The A74 is situated right near town, nice for the night markets which are good, clean and a great place to eat.

I can’t tell you if you’d find 5 nights too long, we stayed 3 nights and enjoyed it, partly because we needed a chill-out right at that particular time in our trip. If you feel you’re short of a day or two on other parts of your trip then you could take off a day.

There’s a great website www.visitphuquoc.info – take a look, it will give you lots of ideas of what to do, where to go and lots more.
