Located in the South China Sea, the two island hideaways of Phu Quoc and Con Dao were once both prison islands. Today's inmates count themselves lucky to be able to enjoy peaceful sandy stretches, sky-blue waters and glorious sunsets away from the crowds. Phu Quoc is the larger of the two islands but its beaches and scenery are no less beautiful. You'll find more in the way of resorts, local bars and eateries here, as well as a lively street food scene, making use of the freshest catches of the day. On your Phu Quoc holidays take a trip along the coastal roads and stop at one of the empty beaches ringing the island,
enjoying the picturesque scenery as you go. The smaller destination of the two, Con Dao provides a more intimate setting. The rugged coastline has slowed development on the island and as a result the island has maintained the tranquility of a true hideaway. On Con Dao holidays you can walk the sandy beaches or trek through the forests and across streams to a secluded bay, passing wildlife as you go. Connect with the solemn history of the island by visiting the largest island prison in Vietnam during the French colonial period, where thousands of Vietnamese revolutionaries were incarcerated.
