A trip to the pristine Phu Quy Island

This was the first time that I had visited Phu Quy Island in Binh Thuan Province, one of the most beautiful islands in Vietnam. The trip gave me exciting and unfamiliar feelings at the same time.

To reach Phu Quy Island, which is 120 kilometers east of Phan Thiet City, I traveled by coach from HCMC to Phan Thiet Port and then took a waterbus to the island.

What impressed me most was the wild scenery here. Basic infrastructures such as roads and ports are all in place but the island remains quite isolated, calm, and wild.

The island is famous for its beaches with crystal-clear water, green mountains, cheap homestays, fresh seafood, and hospitable locals.

In addition to peaceful scenery and unspoiled landscapes, other attractions on the island include Ngu Phung sea embankment, three large wind turbines, and Linh Son Pagoda on Cao Cat Mountain.
