Destination for New Year’s Eve : Phu Quoc Island
I had the great experience in Phu Quoc Island last year during NYE . Well i could say that it was one of the best destination i had ever travelled 🥰 . Before we start the journey , I have 2 questions for you
1 Have you ever heard about Phu Quoc Island ?
No ? Oh That 's really SAD you know . Because Phu Quoc is a beautiful archipelago located deep in the Gulf of Thailand, Kien Giang Province. In the southern sea of the country, Ngoc Phu Quoc Island - the largest island of Vietnam, is also the largest of the 22 islands here. Clear sea water, peaceful streams and many unique seafood are great advantages of Phu Quoc tourism.
2 What is the best time to visit Phu Quoc Island ? 🤔
The most crowded time is from April to September.
However, the dry season (October to March next year) is the best time for Phu Quoc. In general, you can safely travel to Phu Quoc at any time of the year because the average annual temperature is only about 28 degrees Celsius.
Most importantly, keep track of weather forecasts to avoid stormy days.
Ok it's perfect time now , isnt it ? Alright Let's go ! 🤘🏻🤘🏻

Visit Su Muon Pagoda
On the way to Ham Ninh ancient village , we had a chance to visit Su Muon Pagoda- Tourist destinations not to be missed when you come to Phu Quoc
Su Muon Pagoda or Am Su Muon Pagoda are located in Duong To commune, Phu Quoc district. The pagoda with Chinese characters is Hung Long Tu, is a tourist destination as well as a local cultural and religious site in Phu Quoc island district.
There are many reasons why people from everywhere come to the temple. Some people come to worship because of the beliefs, some people hear "good rumors spread out" and many people want to see the beautiful scenery, breathe fresh air and relieve the pressure of life. Regardless of the cause, when leaving here, everyone on the face is happy, relieved and peaceful. Perhaps this is really the attraction that this temple brings.

Ham Ninh Ancient village - Imprint of Time
Located in the east of Phu Quoc pearl island, Ham Ninh commune, this village is a destination you must visit when it comes to PQ Island
We were suggested to watch the sunrise at Ham Ninh jetty early in the morning. With the gentle sunshine and the early morning mist, this is really a paradise for couples who want to have unforgettable memories together. Unfortunately we were unable to stay until the next day, so we missed it
The image of the village with its bamboo roofs and murals, the old and young children with friendly smiles will surely make you want to come back here again, trust me !! 😍😍

Visiting Sim wine brewery
Just like wine also has good effects on human health, so is Sim Phu Quoc wine. Surprisingly, the use of sim wine is very good for the digestive system, especially when you are bloated or eat too much protein.
If Dalat is famous for the sweet, aromatic flavor of grape wine, Phu Quoc sim wine deserves special taste as good as other excellent wines because it is that special flavor that regardless of any tourist. 😍😍

After lunch , we continued to travel other significant destination in Phu Quoc
And I was very pleasured to introduce to you Ho Quoc Pagoda - Truc Lam Phu Quoc Zen Monastery . We visited on rainy days so every step of the stairs into it is also very slippery. Especially for those who are afraid of heights, be more careful. Step up the stairs from above to look at the port. Far away is the clear blue water, this beach is called by local people as Cay Da Beach

Phu Quoc Prison - The symbol of the resilience of the revolutionary soldiers 🇻🇳🇻🇳
The final destination in my second day is Phu Quoc Prison - A must-go destionation when it comes to Phu Quoc
At the time of the resistance war, the colonial government, the empire and the minions imprisoned hundreds of prisoners with brutal and barbaric forms of torture. It is also the central prisoner of prison throughout the Republic of Vietnam, each holding more than 32,000 prisoners (40,000 prisoners if including political prisoners for many periods).

Sao Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches of Phu Quoc with sparkling white sand at Sao Beach, and is immersed in the fresh air by the cool breeze blowing in from the sea.
