In its recent article entitled ‘25 incredible bucket-list islands tourists are yet to discover’, the Australian magazine said that Phu Quoc has everything for the honeymoon mood: luxury resort hotels and spas, great seafood restaurants and chic cocktail bars, along with shimmering reefs and castaway islets.

Among the two-dozen beaches, Dai (Long) Beach and Khem Beach are sunset-perfect for their white sands and emerald waters, it commented.

It also recommended Sao Beach as another corker, but head 10 kilometres north to the hillside Ho Quoc Pagoda and you can prepare to pop the question at sunrise or in the moonlight, when views are ethereal.

The best time to visit Phu Quoc is the October-March dry season, it noted.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Phu Quoc welcomed more than 5 million visitors in 2019, including nearly 600,000 foreigners.
