Phu Quoc has been recognized for the second time as the best natural island in the world
It was not easy to win this award, as there were other famous competitors in the nomination. These include Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, the Dominican Republic, the Isle of Skye in Scotland, the Lofoten Islands in Norway, Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean, and Zanzibar in Tanzania.
The winners of the World Travel Awards were selected based on the votes of the public and tourism professionals from around the world. This was reported by VOV.
Phu Quoc is a Vietnamese paradise
It has a monsoon tropical climate and two seasons: the dry season, which lasts from November to April, and the rainy season from May to October. The average temperature on Phu Quoc Island is 28 degrees Celsius, allowing visitors to enjoy the beauty of the island at any time of the year.
Vietnam is known for its delicious coffee, fish sauce, and fragrant peppers! Its most famous plantation is located here. You can see not only how the pepper grows but also how it is created and how it differs, for example, from red to white. Peppers from Phu Quoc are much more flavorful than those from other parts of the country.
Phu Quoc Island is called the Pearl of Vietnam. Not only because of the beautiful scenery, wonderful beaches, and delicious cuisine but also because... pearl cultivation! Probably not everyone knows that these are precious stones valued all over the world, and their price varies depending on the color, size, and shape, with the cheapest ones, ivory, usually costing several tens of dollars. The most expensive and at the same time the rarest are black pearls, which can cost up to $1,000. At the farm, you can see the process of pearl production, learn what can be made from them, and purchase them.
And, of course, what can we do without an amusement park? Not only children will have fun here: but there are numerous water slides, carousels, and rides. You can spend the whole day here!
The island has also been featured in foreign media and several world-famous magazines, including Condé Nast Traveler, Lonely Planet, Travel Lemming, Channel News Asia-Singapore, and The Week.
