Following the announcement made by Vietnam’s Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism, which has made Phú Quoc Island their focal point for 2016, the Phú Qu?c Travel & Tourism authority has launched an infographic to highlight what the island has to offer to prospective vacationers.
Hanoi, Vietnam -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/18/2015 -- About an hour's flight south of Ho Chi Minh City lies heart shaped Phú Quoc island. Geographically located closer to Cambodia, it was once wistfully known by its Khmer name "Koh Tral" although it has never had a Khmer administration. Backpackers kept this island a secret for a long time but now the secret is out and Phú Quoc is on the cusp of being Asia's next top vacation destination.
"We've come a long way since the end of the American War" said Thoa Vin, marketing director of PhuQuocIslandGuide.com, the official travel and tourism portal that manages the promotion of the island. "With most of the infrastructure almost complete, we project that Phú Quoc will have a big year in 2016."
Not only does the southern Vietnamese island have the routine white sandy beaches, bars and diving spots, its' also got a distinct regional character - the locals there produce the best fish sauce in the country, grow the best pepper, and the islands shores are lined with pearl farms.
