Anyony who knows something about Sol Beach House Phu Quoc? I found this hotel on Hotels.com and I think it looks really nice. The price was also very good. But after looking at the pictures for a while, I realized that the pictures was not real.
I suppose it´s because the hotel is not finished, but I can´t find so much information about the hotel. Anyone with some information?
How far is the market from cruise port. I Will arrive by cruise ship and would like to walk around the city. How do we pronounce Cho which means market in Vietnamese.
With me I asked me friend ( who came to Phu Quoc) or I go to google for searching more
I know very different way with Asian, Western and Vietnamese people to get the restaurant.
Hi, I would like to ask whether I could rent a private apartment in Phu Quoc for 3D2N?
VOA is now available but can i get it if i take a boat from Kep? A tour agency in Kep told me they can take me to Phu Quoc via boat.
Are there fireworks in PQ for new years?
Is there somebody Whois has been there ? Pls. Quote or Tell about experience
I read somewhere which says that tourists leaving the airport area of Phu Quoc have to pay island entry fee of 20000 Dong. Is it true?
Is it true that there are more motorcycles than car taxis in Phu Quoc? If so, is it advisable to bring along the hand luggage with wheels or just sling bag and shoulder bag? I am going on a trip that starts from Singapore to Phu Quoc before proceeding to Ho Chi Minh City and my final destination Vientiane.
May I know what can I see in a few hours in Phu Quoc besides the new international airport of Phu Quoc? My flight arrives in Phu Quoc at 3.45 pm before leaving for Ho Chi Minh City after 7 pm. Is there any fish sauce or black pepper manufacturing centres open to tourists there?
We are elder People but still budget travellers. In mid of November we want to spend a ten days at Phu Quoc Island. Is there anyone else got some experience in a stay at Long co beach to give us a fingertip?
Can anyone tell me if it is possible to go from phu quoc island to koh rong in Cambodia without returning to HCMC?
I will be travelling alone and would prefer to use buses.. Or can you suggest another kind of transportation, safe enough for a woman travelling alone? Thanks in advance!!
Traveling late Jan / early Feb (the Chinese New Year). Will fly into HCMC and likely spend a couple days there. Afterwards want to spend about one week at a nice resort - ideally on the beach and with nice pool etc. Don't need a lot of adventure given the toddler. At first was looking at Mui Ne, but then thought Phu Quoc might be better since we could fly there form HCMC, and Mui Ne is a rather long bus or car trip. I know this isn't a lot of information but would appreciate your views if you have any.
I heard there is a bus from Phu quoc to Bangkok.with an overnight stay
Is there also a bus from Bangkok via Kep and Ha tien including the ferry from Ha tien to PQC ?
where does it start in BKK and where can you buy the tickets.
Will be in Phu Quoc in 3 weeks and we are staying at Cassia Cottage. Can someone tell me if you can walk to the night markets from here? Also my hubby & I wanted to hire a motor bike - semi or automatic . Is it better to hire one each or should I ride pillion. I have ridden in Hoi An hinterland before. Where is the best place to hire and the cost per day? Also where can I get a map to ensure that we can ride around the whole island without getting lost? Any other tips would be most appreciated.
Has anybody stayed in the Chen Sea resort, is there many restaurants or bars near it, or how far is it from the town.
Hi fellow travellers. I am going to Phu Quoc for 5 nights in December and would really love to try some snorkeling whilst there. I have heard snorkeling isn't that great, but I am not too worried as long as I can see some tropical fish. I have snorkeled a few times in Thailand (Phuket) where the corals are pretty dull and dead. I have my own gear, therefore, I'd love to hear your experiences of any trips that you have organised yourselves by hiring a boat from local fishermen as well as any trips organised by companies such Phu Quoc Explorer - especially the private tours. I have spent quite a few hours online looking for information so I have a pretty good idea what to expect from John's and Rainbow Divers, which isn't necessarily what I am looking for.
I am planning a family trip ti Phu Quoc between end of December, beginning of January 2012. I have read some great reviews and seem to like the idea of a laid back vacation there. However, I have a phobia of dogs (and all kind of animals). How are the dogs there? Do they run wild,without leashes? Are we bothered by them at the beach, market and other public places. I also have children under 5 who are afraid of dogs. Please help!
We will be travelling to Phu Quoc from Dec. 31, 2011 to Jan. 4, 2012. I have read reviews about the beaches in Phu Quoc that they're not all that fit to swim in (apparently there are sea lice and jellyfish that put a damper on swimming in Phu Quoc).
As we have decided to make Phu Quoc our "tropical beach" getaway and want to spend a good chunk of time relaxing on the beach and swimming (and enjoying water sports) in the ocean, I want to ensure we can actually enjoy our time in the ocean.
What have other VT members experienced with the ocean and swimming conditions in Phu Quoc? Is it not as ideal as I seem to have researched?
Hi all, I'm seeking advice on whether and how I can leave Phu Quoc Island in late December to head to Cambodia and or Laos without having to go back into Ho Chi Minh. Can I assume that by going by ferry to the nearst Vietnam town I could then get overlad into Cambodia by bus etc or can I go by ferry straight into Cambodia.
Hey there, almost planned the honeymoon completely!
Final question is for accommodation in Phu Quoc.
Looking for beach bungalows, pref. with air con or fanned. A lovely beach to swim in. Tropical setting etc. Will be hiring bikes so isolation not a problem. Budget of up to200 US per night but very happy to spend less.
So far Chen La Resort & Spa looks okay and The Mango Bay resort looks pretty good. I have heard good things about Freedomland but I like the idea of being on the beach.
I would like to know what it costs to eat an ordinary meal at a local restaurant, for example chicken?
Thank you for your help.
I'm traveling to Phu Quoc in two weeks and wondering whether I should expect to see no sun or lazy beach days since it's officially monsoon season? Or, could we strike it lucky and have some nice days? We'll be there for a week.
I'll be travelling to Phu Quoc in November and flying from there to HCMC and then back to Europe. I've read in the internet that flights from Phu Quoc are often cancelled if there are not enough passangers or the weather is bad. Is this true? I really don't want to miss my flight to Europe, so how much time should I have for transit in HCMC?
Hi i have decided to stay and chill in Phu Quoc for 6 nights and i'm wondering if anybody has any suggestions on nice places to stay? I have a budget of up to70 dollars a night, and would love to be right on the beach if possible.
We'll visit Vietnam next turn of the year. After a short tour (Saigon, Cu Chi, Cai Rang, Mekong delta) we want to a spend beach holiday. Which resort would you recommend? Although we want to enjoy beutiful, sandy beaches, infrastructure is very important, because we want to party at night. That's why I originally tended to go to Nha Trang. Unfortunately I researched, that late december/early January is a bad season to go there beacuse of a high chance of rain and due to lack of sun hours. Should we change our destination and go for Phu Quoc? Are there other worthwhile alternatives?
Thanx in advance!
Hi, thinking of flying out of HCMC in Aug 09 to spend 4 or 5 nights on the island. Is it worth a visit? What is the best area to stay in for good restaurants and beaches? Looking to find a reasonable hotel that also has a swimming pool so if anyone has suggestion it would be appreciated. Any other info would be great. Thanks
Hi you all,
