There are many islands for you to experience this activity, such as Hon Thom, Hon Dau, etc. Most of the resorts in Phu Quoc provide tourists with diving and snorkeling packages. A half-day snorkeling trip could contain a visit to floating fishing villages, pearl farms, and a few hours of diving in Bai Sao.

Though considered the hell on Earth in the past, Coconut tree prison still catches tourists’ attention since it is where they may learn more about the will and energy of Vietnamese soldiers during the war. The painful history and Vietnamese’s sacrifice in that sorrowful period were obviously resurgent through exhibits, pictures, and even posthumous writing of communists. Some visitors might not hold their tears after seeing these relics. By and large, it is a must-see place you should not miss!
