Holidays to Phu Quoc & Con Dao: An Overview

Two island hideaways located in the South China Sea, previously home to Vietnam's prisons in paradise, and now the ultimate destination for those looking for peaceful sandy stretches, turquoise waters and glorious sunsets away from the crowds - welcome to Phu Quoc and Con Dao.

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. 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 has maintained the tranquillity of a true hideaway. Walk the sandy beaches, or trek through the forests and 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 Colonisation period, where thousands of Vietnamese revolutionaries were incarcerated.

A Note on Price

Direct flights cost from £700 per person, but once there, Vietnam is pretty good value – a good 10-day itinerary (staying in four star accommodation) costs around £2,600 per person including guides and domestic transport. Those with a bigger budget should expect to easily spend around £5,000 per person.
