THREE OF BEST BESPOKE LOCAL EXPERIENCES

'Traditional Breathe'

One of the popular must-see tours is the ‘Traditional Breathe’ tour, exploring the quintessential aspects of the local culture and traditions, starting with a river boat trip to Red Boat, a hidden gem of a fish sauce factory that became renowned worldwide, and finding out how they ferment their pungent sauce from local anchovies. Next stop is a family-owned factory making traditional Vietnamese rice wine, called sim wine – which is a colourful rice wine made with rose myrtle berries with reputed healing qualities. After lunch at a local beachfront restaurant, you will be taken to a local Pearl Farm for a firsthand look into the island’s pearl industry as well as having the opportunity to find pearls after shucking the pearl shells yourself.

 

 

'Weaving the Dusk’

 

Is an alluring, exclusive sunset boat trip – elevated by a fun cocktail party with canapes and pop music – ending at Phu Quoc’s bustling ‘Night Market’ for a complete evening’s entertainment.

‘The Mysterious Four’

 

Is another extraordinary adventure discovering Phu Quoc's gorgeous, uninhabited offshore islands, known as the An Thoi Archipelago. You will learn of its fabled history, snorkel among teeming marine life and experience the traditional fishing style – catching your own seafood lunch. More snorkeling or scuba-diving amid colourful coral reefs follows at another islet, before swimming or sunbathing on a glorious island beach and heading back against the backdrop of a glorious, spectacular sunset.
