InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort
Start off your day by taking in the hustle and bustle of Duong Dong riverside market. This is a great way to experience local life at around 7am in the cool morning when it’s teeming with life and has the freshest fish that have been caught the previous night. After the market there are famous breakfast spots nearby on Bach Dang Street where you can sample local Banh Canh Cha Ca (fried fishcake noodle soup).
We recommend spending the first part of the afternoon walking or biking along the Dinh Cau Pier to enjoy the coastal scenery of Phu Quoc. Be sure to pay a visit to Dinh Cau Temple, the place locals pay their respects to the Goddess of the Sea. Then head toward An Thoi Harbor for a boat trip, and, if you are feeling adventurous, try your hand at scuba diving or snorkeling to see some of the beautiful coral and marine life below the surface.
Come back to the Resort by sunset to join our Lotus Sunset Ritual and a great meal at our Resort or even in Duong Dong town for a local dining experience. Take a taxi to the Night Market in Duong Dong town and get youself a huge platter of fresh Vietnamese seafood. Try fresh Bun Quay (handmade rice noodles) and self-prepared dipping sauce on Bach Dang Street before heading back to the resort to have a nightcap at the iconic INK 360.
