Vietnam’s Pearl Island uplifts with new attractions and experiences

Phu Quoc, Vietnam invites the world’s travellers to discover a series of new tourism experiences, including an iconic bridge, multimedia shows, cultural attractions and a brand-new internationally-branded five-star resort.

Previously a sleepy fishing island with idyllic beaches, Phu Quoc has been transformed into a vibrant destination with lots to offer, such as new tourism experiences, five-star resorts managed by the world’s leading hotel brands, as well as major events and music festivals hosted at the destination.

Nestled on Phu Quoc’s south-west coast, Sunset Town will stage the VUI-Fest Bazaar in 2024

One new attraction is the Kiss Bridge, nestled on the coast in Sunset Town, close to Phu Quoc’s southern tip. The bridge is an architectural creation featuring two 400-metre-long pathways that stretch out over the water and meet in the middle, just 30cm apart – so two lovers can lean over for a kiss.

With the newly-created VUI-Fest Bazaar, the first night market by the sea concept in Vietnam, visitors can explore the rich heritage of Phu Quoc as the sun sets over Sunset Town. The bazaar comes alive with more than 40 stalls, theatrical performances, interactive art shows, street food and more, featuring a wide range of locally produced goods such as clothing, artworks, handcrafted gifts, and other original souvenirs. VUI-Fest Bazaar is also an eco-friendly event with no single-use plastic bags or drinking straws.

In addition, a new multimedia show, Kiss of the Sea, is held every evening at Sunset Town – a 25-minute performance comprising darkness and light, fire and water, culminating with a fireworks display.

Those who wish to view the island from above can take a ride on the Hon Thom Cable Car, which travels almost 7.9km through the sky from the south of the island over the sea to Hon Thom Island, where visitors can find more beaches as well as a nature park and water park with fun rides for people of all ages.

Phu Quoc also has new luxury accommodations available, including the 197-key La Festa Phu Quoc, Curio Collection by Hilton, JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay Resort, New World Phu Quoc Resort, Premier Residences Phu Quoc Emerald Bay, and Premier Village Phu Quoc. It has also been reported that Marriott International will be the next hotelier to follow with plans underway to develop Vietnam’s first ever Ritz-Carlton Reserve and Luxury Collection branded resort on the island.
