With a sub-equatorial climate, Phu Quoc has two distinct seasons: dry and wet. Dry season (November to April) is considered the best time to visit Phu Quoc Vietnam as there is a lot of sunshine and the humidity is low.

This national park is strictly preserved by the governments and locals, thus it is only accessible in some areas, namely the Forest Reserve near Ganh Dau Village. Camping, hiking, bird-watching, and photography are available there. Couples can hire a bike in a local village to go hiking throughout the forests or build tent and spend the night there. Recording their moments via photos and videos is also a must-do activity when exploring the Park.

How to travel to Phu Quoc?
Phu Quoc Honeymoon tours have become popular thanks to the island’s spectacular and romantic scenery. Travelers can go there on their own, but it is quite hard for foreigners who are not familiar with the Vietnamese language and culture. Hence, it is recommended that you should book tours with travel agencies. Though several companies offer Phu Quoc Island Tours, not all of them are trust-worthy as the number of copycat agencies has been increasing these days. Remember to consider carefully before booking.
