Home to a P.O.W camp holding 40,000 inmates during the Vietnam War from 1967 to 1972, Phu Quoc Island is now a haven for nature and sea lovers looking for a place to unwind. Trekking, diving, snorkeling and fishing are popular activities, and there are a number resorts offering relaxed dining and evening entertainment. Located off the tip of Vietnam’s south coast, the pristine sandy beaches of this laid-back island are reachable by boat from the Mekong Delta, or a 50 minutes flight from Saigon.


Vietnam's weather varies greatly from North to South with each area marked by slightly different seasons and climates. Because of these regional variations, there are always pleasant and favorable areas to visit throughout the year. 

The North, overall, tends to be cooler than the rest of the country and it is cool and the weather often damp at the day time from Nov till Feb

Central Vietnam experiences warm weather from Jul to Oct and wet, colder weather from Nov to May. 

Although the temperature remains fairly steady throughout the year, Southern Vietnam has two seasons. The dry season lasts from Dec to May, while from Jun to Nov is the rainy season.
