Pristine beaches, dense jungle and wilderness and a deep sense of serenity await you on the Vietnam’s two most beautiful islands, Phu Quoc and Con Dao.
Sitting just off the coast of Cambodia in the Gulf of Thailand, Phu Quoc gives visitors the chance to soak up the sun on the quiet, isolated beaches. Phu Quoc is a refreshing change from the many South East Asian islands that have suffered from overdevelopment and relentless tourism. It’s no wonder ABC news named this as the cleanest and most beautiful beach in the world.
Despite its remote feel, Phu Quoc, is well equipped for those who wish to enjoy the finer things with several highly recommended luxury hotels and villas. Con Dao is the name of the largest of 15 islands, which make up the eponymous archipelago. Con Dao has an interesting history and was home to the largest prison in Vietnam during the war years.
There’s no lack of gorgeous open beaches for some real R&R and remember to bring your snorkelling gear to explore the colourful coral reefs and scenic coves. For those in need of serious “barefoot luxury”, the new Six Sense resort is the crème de crème of the island’s accommodation.
Phu Quoc and Con Dao are arguably two of the most idyllic destinations in Vietnam and Lightfoot Travel know just the way to prepare a trip to allow you to discover all their secrets at an island life’s pace.
