Phu Quoc

The island of Phu Quoc in the Gulf of Thailand hosts some of the most beautiful beaches in Asia. There is for example Bak Khem for snorkeling and fishing, or Bai Truong, famous for its sunsets. More difficult to reach but equally beautiful is also Bai Sap to the south, scarcely visited by tourists. Finally there is Dai Beach with its 5 km of fine golden sand. Phu Quoc is the largest island in Vietnam and is well connected by flight to the capital Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
