In 2015, Condé Nast Traveler’s readers voted Phu Quoc’s Sao Beach as one of the ten most pristine and tranquil beaches in the world, alongside other renowned destinations such as Fiji and Maldives.

Besides stunning landscapes, Pearl Island is among the most alluring destinations in Vietnam, owing to a kaleidoscope of cultural-historical experiences, and various kinds of accommodations – from affordable housing to luxurious resorts offered.
