Hanoi (VNA) - Phu Quoc island in the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang is an ideal destination for tourists to explore after it becomes the first tourist site in Vietnam to re-open for visitors soon.

Recently, local authorities have proposed to receive foreign visitors who have COVID-19 vaccination certificates from October. Visitors, mostly come to the island via charter flights, are restricted from visiting the mainland. 

Phu Quoc is a tropical island resort off the southern coast of Vietnam.

Travel website suggested that Phu Quoc is a good choice for those who are looking for a stunning island paradise in Southeast Asia.

The website noted that the island is serviced by an international airport that hosts direct flights all the way from Europe, and SIM cards are sold at the airport.

It also gives recommendations for visitors on where to visit during a 7-10-day trip in the island.

Starfish Beach

On the north side of the island is Starfish Beach. This is a must-see for every visitor on the island and is quite possibly the most beautiful beach on the island, it said. “Here you can order food and enjoy all manner of alcohol and tropical fruit juices, but be sure to start your day here with a coconut,” TheTravel advised.

Truc Lam Ho Quoc Zen Monastery

There are a number of Buddhist temples and monasteries on the island, but one of the must-sees on the island is the Truc Lam Ho Quoc Zen Monastery on the southern end of the island, the website noted, adding that this is a stunning monastery and a great day trip. It is perched upon a hill overlooking the sea and a great place to relax.

Phu Quoc prison

According to the website, the historical relic site will be a less joyous visit but it is highly educational and interesting. Built in the 1950s, the site gives an insight on the horrors of war.

Duong Dong Market

Another destination on the island that TheTravel recommended is Duong Dong Market, which is busy at night. It is full of souvenirs and restaurants, it said, commenting that the atmosphere is very chill and quiet./.
