February 15-17, 2019
For my last stop in Vietnam, I decided to spend some time on one of the prettiest islands in South East Asia: Phu Quoc. I also decided to splurge a little and rent a private bungalow minutes away from the beach. It is still a vacation, after all.
Phu Quoc is not only known for its pristine beaches and snorkeling in clear blue water, however. The island is one of the major regions for pepper plantations (fun fact: Vietnam is the world’s largest producer and exporter of black peppercorn) and pearl farms.
After getting some much needed R&R at the bungalow and viewing a beautiful sunset on the beach on the first night, I took a day trip to visit a pepper plantation and pearl farm. I also took a boat trip to go fishing and snorkeling around different small islands south of Phu Quoc. I even made a friend along the way who let me tag along with her family on the boat trip!
With it’s relaxing atmosphere and water adventures, Phu Quoc was the perfect place to end my Vietnam adventures and recharge before taking on Thailand.
