Planning Your Trip To Phú Quốc Island

Getting There

Before setting off on your trip to Phú Quốc, planning your itinerary well can help you save on costs and make the journey a smooth one.

There are two ways you can get to Phú Quốc Island:

By plane:

You can take flights to the Phú Quốc International Airport. Direct flights are available from Bangkok, Thailand and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. If you are taking a flight from anywhere else, there will likely be a transfer at another airport. Likewise, domestic flights are available from Da Nang, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. The Phú Quốc International Airport opened in 2012 and is located about nine kilometres from Duong Dong town.

By boat:

Travellers can opt for the ferry routes from Ha Tien or Rach Gia to reach Phú Quốc. These routes offer a much more relaxed journey to the island with beautiful landscapes to take in along the way. Phú Quốc Express is a favourite among travellers who desire comfort in their journeys. These ferry rides come equipped with water, on-board entertainment and are generally clean - making it suitable for those travelling with children.

Best Time To Travel

Since it is an island getaway, the weather plays a big part in determining your travel plans and how your holiday will go. Depending on what your travel plans look like, the best season to visit Phú Quốc Island differs.

From November to March

Travellers who choose to travel during this season can look forward to clear blue skies and warm weather. Also known as the high season, Phú Quốc tends to be packed with families and backpackers around this time because it coincides with the school holidays. The hot and dry weather - averaging at about 30 degree Celsius - is also perfect for activities like snorkelling and diving.

As the season tends to be high peak, travellers are advised to make arrangements for their stay in Phú Quốc - hotels, reservations, tours and activities - in advance to lower the risk of high costs later on.

From April to October

This season is when Phú Quốc Island experiences its annual monsoon. Travellers can expect some amount of rainfall during this period but not to an extent where your travel plans are disrupted. The cooler weather during this low season permits for some good treks up in Phú Quốc’s tropical rainforests and visits to their natural waterfalls.

This low peak season is also perfect for those who prefer a quieter and relaxed atmosphere during vacation. There are lower numbers and prices tend to be parked around a more reasonable range as well.
