Situated in the Gulf of Thailand, Phu Quoc Island was once a prison island then a sleepy backpacker destination and now is fast transforming to an emerging resort island. The island also gets its distinct regional character – the locals there produce the best fish sauce in the country, grow the best pepper, and the islands shores are lined with pearl farms. There is something magical about Phu Quoc Island which makes it paradise on earth. It’s the enchanting limestone cliffs, the crystal clear water, or the warmth of the locals? It may be the unending sea and islands to explore, or perhaps the laid back vibe that it gives off.
