2017 Phu Quoc -This was a long but great seven hour tour. Unbelievable low price, $16.00 each. Our guide was informative giving us an overview of what we are seeing. First stop was at the Pearl Farm. I wasn’t prepared to buy a $3000.00 strand of pearls. Later we noticed this lady in a different market was stringing pearls with great quality and value.
Phu Quoc Temple– Truly an awe-inspiring site. Located on the hillside offers great views of the ocean below. Magnificent statues and sculptures depicting unique characters. It is the largest pagoda located in Phu Quoc.
Stopping at a small fishing village was such a highlight. Can’t remember the name as there was no sign posted. Little kids running around the market area, laughing, playing and so happy. Walking around with our tourist bus friends we noticed the delight in the eyes of the local vendors. Everyone sold something for tourists. Such a fun day.
