Squid fishing at night

Phu Quoc island falls in silence at night but far from distance, the lights still sparkle and fishermen still work in hustle and diligence. It’s time to enjoy the pleasure and fascinating moments with sailors and experience squids fishing. Nothing fascinated than catching squids by yourself or fishing out swordfish and green bone fish floating on the seawater surface.

Explore Phu Quoc National Park

Phu Quoc National park covers more than 50% of the island so it is definitely worth considering a visit, especially if you would like to escape the heat of the daytime sun. Hire a motorbike on your own and explore the northern parts of the island. The best areas and most forested parts can be found on the road toward Ganh Dau.

To get there, take the road from Duong Dong towards Bai Thom and turn off toward Ganh Dau. The national park becomes more apparent when you get closer to Ganh Dau village.

Walking trails are limited, however, if you are finding a great way to experience the national park, there is a good walking trail 5km before geting to Ganh Dau. The trail is wide enough to take in the surrounding environment. The walk is a particularly pleasant way to escape the heat as the vegetation provides a coverage from the heat of sun. Take the same road mentioned previously towards Ganh Dau and 100m after the 5km Ganh Dau road marker on the left hand side, you’ll find an entrance to the national park with a clearly defined walking trail stretching for kilometres.
