Similar to Vinpearl Land in Nha Trang, the one in Phu Quoc is also divided into zones: waterpark, game area, performance area, and indoor game.
The performance area with outdoor performances and street festivals will make you fascinated. We also love the water slides here.
Food and drink are very reasonably priced, and the place is well organized and suitable for all ages.

10. Visit fishing villages
One of our best experiences in Phu Quoc was at Ham Ninh fishing village.
The village is nestled at the foot of Ham Ninh mountain, about 20km from Duong Dong town.
Ham Ninh is an ancient and pristine village with thatched roofs and simple bamboo walls. People in this area mainly live by catching pearls and fishing.
Besides the pure beauty of charming scenery, this place is also a great destination if you’d like to enjoy fresh seafood.
Ham Ninh fishing village offers an exciting experience, which is dining in the middle of the sea. You’ll get to these floating restaurants by boat, choose the seafood and let them know how you want to cook them.

Phu Quoc Island is not only famous for its beautiful beaches, vast primeval forests, or fresh seafood dishes, but also a great place to buy peppers.
Phu Quoc pepper is renowned for its characteristic aromatic flavor as an essential spice in every Vietnamese kitchen.
Visiting these farms, you can learn about the methods of growing pepper and better understand the hard life of the people on the island.
12. Learn about the bees
Another exciting place to visit in Phu Quoc is a bee farm. Located near the primeval forest, this bee farm is the first to study and preserve bees on this island.
Here, you can visit, listen to explanations about the honey bee ecological farm. You can also try honey tasting and purchase honey gifts back home.

14. Enjoy tasty seafood
Phu Quoc is a paradise for seafood lovers! Seafood is fresh, and there are many choices.
During our stay in Phu Quoc, we often visited the markets, bought fresh fish and shrimp, and grilled it by ourselves. (Thanks to our Airbnb kitchen!)
We also visited the fishing villages and tried seafood dishes there. Prices at the fishing village were generally cheaper than the restaurants in town.
