Phu Quoc Island is an ideal choice for travel and long-term relaxation, with a complete visa exemption policy for international visitors, a temporary stay of up to 30 days, a populous and rich nature, and impressive architecture.

Superior visa policy

Phu Quoc is currently the only destination in Việt Nam with a unique visa policy.

According to current legal regulations, from July 1, 2020, foreigners and Vietnamese holding foreign passports entering, exiting, and residing in Phu Quoc island are exempt from visas with a temporary stay period of no more than 30 days.

Foreigners can enter an international border gate of Việt Nam (including air and sea), stay in the transit area at that border gate, and then transfer to Phu Quoc island to be exempt from visas following this regulation.

Phu Quoc is famous for its beautiful and dreamlike beaches.

Phu Quoc has its visa policy because it is the only island that meets four conditions of visa exemption for foreigners under Vietnamese law. It has an international airport, is a separate space, has definite geographical boundaries, is separate from the mainland and is consistent with the socio-economic development policy that does not jeopardise Việt Nam's national defense, security, social order, and safety.

As an isolated island located in the Gulf of Thailand, located at southwest of Việt Nam, the means of transportation to Phu Quoc are very convenient with air, sea, and land routes. Tourists visiting this island can enter and exit through three international border gates including Phu Quoc International Airport Border Gate, Ha Tien International Border Gate, and Duong Dong Port International Border Gate, Phu Quoc.

Hon Thom, the world's longest cable car, is in the South of Phu Quoc island.

Currently, many international routes with multiple daily flights operate in Phu Quoc, including India, Korea, Thailand, and Malaysia. Many other countries continue to research and open flight routes to Phu Quoc. Transportation on the island is also extremely convenient. Tourists can easily travel by tax and bus or experience the Duong Dong - An Thoi bus and vice versa. In particular, tourists who have purchased tickets to Sun World Phu Quoc will receive free bus tickets for Duong Dong - An Thoi route.

Attractive nature, with many impressive architectural works

Phu Quoc is a favourite destination for tourists all over the world.

Tourists visiting pearl island will enjoy the fresh air with warm sunshine all year round and explore the rich and dreamlike island paradise.

These are the beaches listed as the "most beautiful on the planet," with fine white sand and limpid water to the bottom, such as Bai Kem and Bai Sao; the small islands of An Thoi archipelago, such as Hon Thom, Hon May Rut, Hon Mong Tay, and Hon Dam Ngang with pristine beauty, diverse marine - forest ecosystems, colourful coral reefs or amazing rocky cliffs.

There are also romantic sunsets when the sun dyes the ocean red on the island's southwest coast, or the end point of Ong Doi Cape - a "one of a kind" place where tourists can watch the sunset and sunrise at the same place.

The attractive natural beauty of the An Thoi archipelago of Phu Quoc captivates tourists.

In 2022, Phu Quoc was named "the world's most attractive natural island" at the World Travel Awards ceremony, surpassing six destinations from other continents, including many islands that were once known as paradises like Zanzibar of Tanzania or Lofoten of Norway.

Previously, the world-famous travel magazine Condé Nast Traveler announced the list of 35th Readers' Choice Awards, with Phu Quoc being the only Vietnamese representative to be honoured as one of the "Top 10 most loved islands in Asia".

Phu Quoc also won many titles, such as the 25 most beautiful islands in the world in 2022 by Travel + Leisure or the 15 best islands for retirement, voted by International Living.
