My friend and are are heading to Vietnam in February and thought about heading to Phu Quoc towards the end of the month.
My partner however lived in Vietnam for two years and said that while he never personally went there, he did stay at Nha Trang and everyone he met who'd been to Phu Quoc island said it was 'meh' or 'ok' and 'not what you think it will be'. Also I've heard the water is very polluted there as it's near the Mekong Delta and the development is crazy on the island. Then there's the power plant and infrastructure that goes with that, and apparently high prices?
I thought I'd ask some people who have been there recently or are there now, is it as bad as all that? My friend and I would want to bake on the beach and maybe hire a moped to get around a bit, explore some jungle if possible. Is Phu Quoc the place we should go?
