After about a 3 hour bus ride to Rach Gia and a 3 and a half hour ferry ride I arrived in Phu Quoc last yesterday afternoon. The port is about 26 kilometers from Long Beach where most of the resorts are located.
I am staying in a nice bungalow right on the beach, priced at just $6 a night. The restaurant is right on the sand. The beach unfortunately is a little narrow and at high tide impossible to walk very far without getting very wet – which I discovered this morning.
Phu Quoc is not far from Sihanokville, Cambodia. Cambodia even has claims on the island. There are a few resorts and cheap bungalows, but it seems like a fairly undeveloped tourist destination. Although there seems to be a large number of non-tourist related businesses.
There are plenty of coffee shops selling beer and coffee but not many restaurants, which seems a bit odd to me.
