Phu Quoc Island, off the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang, has been honoured by the American travel magazine Condé Nast Traveler (CN Traveler) as one of the world’s top islands in 2023.
Boasting long beaches with gleaming white sand lying serenely along inviting turquoise waters, the Vietnamese island secured a spot in the Asian island category, ranking 8th with 88.89 points. It was followed by Japan’s Okinawa & Ryuku islands and the Philippines’ Siargao Island.
Phu Quoc named among world’s top islands.
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.
Foreign media has praised Phu Quoc as a “rising star” on the global tourism map, thanks to its radical changes to attract visitors.
Charming Sunset Town, which was recently put into operation in the southern part of the island, has been hailed by Yonhap News of the Republic of Korea, as it offers visitors a unique experience to enjoy the Mediterranean beauty in a tropical nation.
Meanwhile, Traveller magazine of Australia affirmed that every corner of Sunset Town will amaze visitors.
