For Duong Dong town
There are several hotels and resorts in this area, and my favorite is Salinda Resort Phu Quoc.
How to get to Phu Quoc cable car
The Phu Quoc cable car’s shuttle bus service from Duong Dong town to Hon Thom cable car is currently suspended.
Therefore, you’ll need to get there by bike, taxi or tour.
From Duong Dong town, you can follow Tran Hung Dao street to An Thoi cable car station. It’s about 23 km and takes approximately 30 minutes.

Our Phu Quoc cable car experience
We spent a day exploring Southern Phu Quoc island and taking the cable car.
The An Thoi archipelago looks impressive from above. Around Pineapple island, there are many aquaculture areas. If you stay here for 2-3 days, you can join a squid fishing tour with fishers at night and dawn.
Hon Thom park
Arriving at Hon Thom station, we continued exploring the park. It was not huge but pleasant to walk around.
We first went to Polynesian village, where we spotted a beautiful lake with many amusing statues.
The Lantern house was a nice stop, as well. The architecture was fascinating! There are performances here at 11:15 am and 1:15 pm daily (except Tuesday).
Aquatopia water park
The themes include the “mysterious desert island” and “aboriginal island,” Aquatopia water park is divided into many mysterious areas.
It offers visitors a fun day to discover the beautiful life in the ocean, the rich tropical forests, and the adventure on the deserted island.
The Pineapple beach
From the park, we went to Pineapple beach by electric car. Several cars were waiting in line, so we didn’t need to wait and just hopped on one.
The ride to Pineapple island was about 5 minutes, and here the beach appeared. The water was so clean, and we love how stunning the area is.
Paid services at Pineapple island
Visiting Pineapple island, you should try diving and watching coral. This island has one of the most beautiful corals in Vietnam.
Also, paragliding is a risky game but worth experiencing on this island. Each flight allows up to 2 people, depending on the wind situation.
From above, you can admire the whole scenery of Hon Thom and colorful coral reefs. You will be in the air for about 5-10 minutes, and the ticket price of 600,000 VND / person.
Equally exciting is the Jet Ski, a fascinating game for speed enthusiasts.
After a few minutes of listening to the instructions, you can launch comfortably on the vast sea. The ticket price is 550,000 VND for 10 minutes of fun.
What to pack for your trip to Pineapple island
Here is the list of what to bring
- Swimsuit or Bikini: There are changing rooms near the beach
- Hat: It’s quite hot at noon, so prepare wide-brimmed hats if you don’t want to be tired or dizzy. Moreover, this is also an accessory that helps you look more stylish.
- Towels: The rental fee is 50,000 VND per towel, so you should prepare in advance.
Tips for visiting Phu Quoc cable car
- You’ll need to keep your cable tickets for 2-way travel and return, so you must keep your tickets carefully. If lost, you will have to buy the return ticket.
- Download your tickets in case there’s no internet/ wifi
- Hon Thom beach area is quite sunny, so don’t forget to bring umbrellas, hats, and suncream
I can’t think of a more exciting way to travel! I had no idea these cable cars could carry up to 30 people. I’d love to visit Pineapple Island too, I’ve heard such wonderful things! Dreaming of when I can visit Vietnam next!
Although it could carry up to 30 people, we had the cabin for ourselves. It’s definitely the best haha!
We do love to find ways to get panoramic views on our travels. So we would definitely take the Phu Quoc Cable Car To Pineapple Island and see the entire An Thoi archiplego from above. It would be fun to go one way by cable car and maybe take the boat back. Great idea to buy online, save money and skip the line too!
I think you’d love the view from the cable car. It’s really impressive!
I love the idea of the cable car to reach Pineapple island! I am sure you can get great photo opportunities of the island and the sea from above. The image of Polynesian village and lake looks amazing! This would be a perfect weekend getaway in Vietnam. :-)
Totally! Phu Quoc is a lovely destination for a weekend getaway.
Wow, the Pineapple island is so cool. I would definitely take the Phu Quoc Cable Car and go that high to 174 meters. That will be amazing to get a panoramic view of the beaches and the island. Thanks for this, I have added it to my list.
You’d love it for sure!
The view from above is surely fantastic! I like that you can buy the cable car ticket online and it has additional values besides you don’t have to wait on a long line. Spending time in the Pineapple Island is a must in my opinion. But going squid tour with the fishermen will be a wonderful experience!
I’m sold on everything here, especially seeing Pineapple Island, how beautiful! Cable cars are a great way of seeing an aerial view, and you’ve provided excellent information on what visitors need to know before going. I’ll bookmark this should I ever return to Vietnam again.
This looks absolutely amazing! Cable car must offer the best views of the area, and the water is so beautiful and turquoise. I wish I was there now.. ha ha. This had all the info needed for taking a ride at cable car. And in any circumstances, I woulnd’t skip the visit to Pineapple Beach. So pretty! We hope to visit Vietnam in near future.
Wow! This looks fun and the view is breathtaking. I have always preferred via cable car (if available) since the experience is so unique and memorable. Happy to know that it operates continuously and there would be no need to wait. Would love to visit Pineapple Island in the future. Thank you for sharing this.
Have always loved the cable car experience because seeing the world from top is always fascinating. We just loved our experience in Switzerland and the short trip on London Emirates. Pineapple island looks so beautiful. Loved this virtual ride and thanks for that.
