The Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang will develop its Phu Quoc island into an eco-tourism centre, according to the province’s tourism development strategy for the 2011-2020 period.

Phu Quoc, Vietnam's largest island with a total area of 574 sq.km, is one of the country's most popular tourist destinations. It is dubbed as a “tourism paradise” in the south-western region.
Under the development plan, the island is set to welcome 1-1.2 million visitors each year by 2015, earning 209 million USD. Of the number, foreign arrivals make up 35 percent.

By 2020, the island is expected to gross 771 million USD from receiving 2-3 million tourists annually with 40 percent being foreign visitors.

With major products such as exploring, ecological and cultural tourism, the island targets to become a more attractive tourism destination to holiday-makers.

Apart from the domestic market, Phu Quoc is expected to become a popular destination for travellers from foreign markets such as Northeast Asia, North America, West Europe and ASEAN./.
