The largest island of Vietnam, Phu Quoc, is a foodie’s paradise thanks to its abundance of cheap eats from street vendors. Hostel rates may be slightly more than on the mainland due to demand, but they are still a more cost-effective option than other popular island getaways.

Phu Quoc’s tourism industry has seen recent growth thanks to the addition of modern attractions like theme parks, cable car systems, and safari tours.

Sao Beach, Vinpearl Safari Phu Quoc, the Hon Thom Departure Terminal, the Suoi Tranh Waterfall, and Vin Wonders Phu Quoc are just a few of the places that are highlighted in the Canadian magazine.

Visitors from other countries can remain in Phu Quoc visa-free for up to 30 days. There are flights to cities all over the world from its international airport.

Phu Quoc is Vietnam’s first island city, and it can be found in the Gulf of Thailand to the south of the main land.

When it’s dry (November through April), tourists flock there.

It’s made up of a string of unspoiled islands like Mong Tay, Gam Ghi, and May Rut, and its crystal-clear waters make it ideal for scuba diving to explore coral reefs, as well as fishing, squid fishing, and other water activities.

Unguja, in Tanzania, and Bermuda, in the Atlantic Ocean, top the list.

Islands such as Oahu in the United States, Puerto Rico, Koh Phi Phi in Thailand, and Malta are also included in this category.
