With warm turquoise waves and coconut palm lined beaches, Vietnam’s Phu Quoc is easily one of the most idyllic islands in Southeast Asia. While it isn’t advisable to show up in peak season without having booked a room, getting around the island is tricky, and dragging your luggage around muddy roads would be an awful start to your vacation. So how do you avoid booking a mildewed room at an unfriendly resort? To help you out, we’ve complied a list of our favourite hotels and guesthouses on Phu Quoc Island.
We’ve just released out latest Travelfish Guide — this one to Da Nang and Hoi An, on Vietnam’s central coast. This 22-page ebook is the perfect addition for somebody contemplating a trip to Vietnam and is far more up-to-date than traditional guidebooks. It’s available for sale now in the Travelfish store for a mere US$4.95 — how’s that for value.
We’ve just added another photo essay — this one a collection of photos taken on Phu Quoc Island, Vietnam. This coincides with our newly updated Phu Quoc coverage which is all online except for the map (which will be updated shortly). You can read (or rather look at) the Phu Quoc photo piece here and you can read our updated coverage of Phu Quoc here.
We’ve just added a new feature story of sorts — this one a collection of photos taken in Hoi An, Vietnam. Think of it as a “photo short story” rather than a photo essay. This coincides with our newly updated Hoi An coverage which is all online except for the map (which will be updated shortly). You can read (or rather look at) the Hoi An photo piece here and you can read our updated coverage of Hoi An here.
