Phu Quoc & Con Dao

Pristine beaches, dense jungle and wilderness and a deep sense of serenity await you on 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 Southeast Asian islands that have suffered from overdevelopment and relentless tourism, one of the cleanest and most beautiful beaches 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 la crème of the island’s accommodation.
