Phu Quoc, Vietnam's largest island is situated in the gulf of Thailand. The drop-shaped island is 48 km in length, and from 3 to 28 km breadth wise.
All in all it has 1320 sq km and about 70000 inhabitants are living on it. Compared to other islands, Phu Quoc has a very good infrastructure, like for example: an airport, several harbors, wide roads, hospital, post-office, police-station and a beautiful market.
River cruising, visiting fish-sauce factories and pepper plantations, jungle-trekking to the waterfall, boat trips to An Thoi islands with snorkeling and fishing, enjoying the countless lonely beaches, marveling the local products at the market, try to find the whale museum. Since March 2002 there is also a diving-base on Phu Quoc. It is located 1 kilometre down south of Duong Dong.
