Phu Quoc, a picturesque island off the coast of Vietnam, is taking center stage in the travel sphere. With the recent addition of a luxurious five-star resort, the island is now a step closer to becoming the country’s premier beach destination, as touted by a prominent travel website.

Despite this newfound attention, Phu Quoc retains its laid-back allure and unique local spirit, as distinctive as the island’s renowned fish sauce.

DestinAsian, a respected travel authority, highlights the island’s culinary delights, including the famous nuoc mam (fish sauce), black pepper, seafood, and a unique pink wine crafted from rose myrtle fruit. The island is also known for its lustrous pearls.

In a list of top beach destinations in the region, Phu Quoc holds its own among heavyweights like Bali, Indonesia (taking the top spot), the Maldives, Phuket and Koh Samui in Thailand, and Boracay in the Philippines.

The remaining destinations rounding out the top 10 include Langkawi and Penang in Malaysia, Palawan in the Philippines, and Lombok in Indonesia. Phu Quoc’s inclusion in this prestigious list solidifies its reputation as a must-visit beach haven.
