Be prepared for a grim view of what man sometimes does to man. There are many lifelike models at the prison of the torture done to the North Vietnamese prisoners of war which were held at this prison. As we know, those who win the war get to tell their account of what happened. There was no reference regarding the... More

Went to Phu Quoc prison randomly on the way to the beach. It was an interesting stop to see the torture displays. These displays are made with wooden figures and hope to demonstrate the cruelty during the war at the prison. It was a free and quick walkthrough.

I was visiting this place in 1 day hanging out around phuquoc island. The prison is very worth pondering for everyone, whose stopped by. The first moment when i saw the fencing, it's scared. I don't know how the people they can live and suffering inside there. The torture is very terrible. How they're can strong enough. This place will... More

Very interesting place. Some history on how the Americans built the prison during the Vietnam War and what went on there.

When you see things like this it really makes you think about all the finger pointing after any conflict. This place is an everlasting memorial to this. The buildings that are here today, I'd hazard a guess that they would have been built much later. I don't think that the buildings of the time would have been in such a... More

A lot of cruelty happened before, during and after the Vietnam war. This prison serves as a monument to that. Don't miss it. It's free and open air museum with English and Vietnamese signs. Translation is not the best, you get the point. Narration is very political anti American, but you know what that is a good thing. Facts are... More

Listen about this prison, and Vietnam war history. I went here with my niece. She was very interesting to know about the history. History is a part of present!

Experience strong but necessary ... it is a warning to all people of any deployment or political color. Poor explanations and explanatory signs even though the place speaks for itself.
