As with all destinations in the south of Vietnam, Phu Quoc Island can be split into two seasons characterized dry season and rainy season.
According to our experience of traveling to Phu Quoc, the best time to go to the island is the dry season. That is from the end of October until March of the following year, in addition, it can last until May if the weather is favorable. At this time, the weather in Phu Quoc is less rainy, cool and cool waves are very convenient for traveling and relaxation.
In the east pearls can be bought in pretty Ham Ninh fishing village, and local seafood sampled at Kim Cuong. To the south, at Sao Beach, more seafood is available at My Lan restaurant on the beach. Head further south to discover An Thoi, then back up the stunning west coast road. Stop off at Phu Quoc Pearl Farm for coffee and delicious ice cream. At night a chain of lights bobbing across the horizon can be seen which is where the local fishermen attach lamps to their boats to attract squid
Go squid fishing in the evening, visit Phu Quoc National Park or swim in a quiet pool.
Mountain bikes are easily availed- able to hire from the Saigon Phu Quoc Hotel or some local shops and an ideal way to explore.
