The lush tropical island of Phu Quoc, lying between the South China Sea and Gulf of Thailand, is our choice for a beach extension to our existing Vietnam tours; Hanoi to Saigon and World Heritage Sites of Vietnam. The island is easily accessible, with its own airport offering several daily Saigon, (Ho Chi Minh City), flights plus connecting, onward flights to Bangkok. Speedboats service the short sea crossing from Rach Gia in the Mekong Delta while hopefully boat crossings from nearby Kep and Kampot on Cambodia’s south coast will also be available in the near future.
This island extension then is suitable for any tour ending in Saigon, (Ho Chi Minh City), or in the case of our Mekong Delta tour the extension would include a taxi transfer from Can Tho to Rach Gia and boat to Phu Quoc. Since there’s daily connections to Bangkok Airport via Saigon it’s also straightforward to add to any of our numerous Southeast Asia tours finishing in Bangkok as well.
Activities, other than beach-combing or checking out the pool-side cocktails, include; snorkelling trips, scuba diving, sea-kayaking, a visit to the in-house spa and of course exploring the island’s lush tropical interior on foot or bicycle plus, last but not least, sampling the renowned Vietnamese cuisine.
