Phú Quốc - the land that captivated me at the first sight.
Phú Quốc is a beautiful island located deep in the Gulf of Thailand, Kien Giang province, the southern coast of the country was dubbed "Pearl Island". You can go here by plan or by boat.
It takes only about 40 minutes to get out of the hustle and bustle of urban life to relax with the blue sea, golden sunshine, and white sand of Pearl Island. Phú Quốc Island has a tropical monsoon climate with two distinct seasons: the dry season and the rainy season. My flight landed at the airport at the time of the dry season. In November, Phú Quốc greeted me with a heat of 30 degrees, a dazzling sunshine and clear blue sky and dry winds.
Fortunately for the dry season, tourist area Suối Tranh still has plenty of flowing water, with a view of the white waterfall, as a favor that Phú Quốc gave me on this trip. It's such a beautiful scenery, beautiful as a vivid picture.
It was afternoon, I continue to go back toward the Ham Ninh fishing village located on the east coast of the island, behind the mountain, facing the immense sea. The beauty appeared in front of me with a pier directly to the sea. The sea in a few hundred meters away is still quite shallow. The wind from the sea breeze blows, the twinkle of yellow light waves made a shimmering carpet shimmering a corner of the sky.
Going to Dương Đông town, I have the opportunity to explore another corner of Phú Quốc by night, an interesting difference. Phú Quốc night is not noisy, crowded as Saigon. Towards Dinh Cau night market, I walk to visit the handicraft stalls and souvenir stalls. I walked to Dinh Cau, where was chosen as a symbol for Phú Quốc island. Off the coast, the boat that picking up the tourist to catch the squid at night was sparkling. For me, this is the moment I am satisfied because I have fulfilled the dream. Phú Quốc is very peaceful.
The next day, I was taken to the boat whose bottom made of glass to go fishing and to go diving to see coral in the north of the island. It is also a memorable experience. After fishing, the boat continues to Ông Lang beach, coral viewing point. In the clear water, each block of coral slowly appears, sometimes there are fish swimming through. Back to Duong Dong center, I went to visit the rest of the south of the island: pearl farm, "sim" wine shop, fish sauce traditional factory and the historical Phú Quốc prison. Besides, Bãi Sao - one of the most beautiful beaches of Phú Quốc. The jade blue sandy beach, smooth white sand between two gentle mountains to bring quiet private space. Going to Sao beach, in addition to swimming, you can enjoy the specialties Phú Quốc - the famous herring salad. Enjoy life here is like I am in paradise, all sorrows of life hustle gradually melted away…
Come to Phú Quốc this time, all experience exceeded my expectations: to harmony the peaceful pace, enjoy the charm of the streams, pristine beaches, and specialties. And you? Have you ever been to Phú Quốc Island? Share me or check-out here!
