Tour of the prison took about a half hour. In prison, the torture was carried out revolutionaries. In some areas there is exposure to scenes of torture. If you're on the road, you can see the call. But especially, in my opinion, you should not go.

We dropped in for 20 minutes and took a good walk around. Entry is free which always help. Not sure how reliable the information on the history of the prison is (written by the current communist regime) but it is an eye opener.

I have to admit I didn't realise Phu Quoc had been affected by the war, in way of a prison. The prison was covered on the outside by barbed wire. And sentry posts. In side was worse, the corrugated huts showed prioners being tortured in the most horrific of ways. It really was heart wrenching. Although I can't say I... More

The day I went to Phu Quoc Prison is a heavily rainy day. However, this didn't make my trip less boring. I saw lots of our country's historical stories and our heroes as well. Such an unforgettable experience!

A very confronting place to visit. Highlights the atrocities that take place during times of conflict. Free entry is good. take cold water with you on a hot day. A local took us to this location. Leaves you fairly speechless

The torture that officials were doing to prisoners in this prison is terrible. If you are a sensitive person I recommend you never visit this place, unless you want to have recurring nightmares

This place could have been so much better than what it was on the day that we were there. I'm not sure what the normal setup is but we would've loved to have a guide or someone there with us that could give us some good background on what took place there and why. I've since researched it and it... More

The barbarity depicted by the models at this prison is terrible. But unlike the actual photos at the war museum in Saigon, it is hard to imagine the reality of it in the same way. What these people have been through is beyond comprehension, but it would be interesting to see an American record of the war also, as I... More

If you are interested in the past history of Vietnsm this place is well worth a visit. Easy to find on a tour of the island
