National Geographic, has named Phu Quoc island one of the top 15 favoured winter travel destinations for 2014.
It ranks third after Paris (France) and Whitefish, Montana (USA).
Phu Quoc has the most beautiful beaches in Viet Nam with warm, turquoise waters; secluded, deep sand beaches; and lush, mountainous interior, National Geographic reported.
“Phu Quoc is Viet Nam’s nuoc mam (fish sauce) capital. The island’s signature (and powerfully pungent) sweet-sour Phu Quoc sauce is the essential Vietnamese condiment and, in 2013, became the country’s first product granted European Union Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) status.”
National Geographic suggests that visitors should go to Phu Quoc from December to March (dry season), when average daytime temperatures range between 25 and 27 degrees Celsius.
