This is not a normal prison. Here, the inmates were not prisoners but rather "cadres" or "militants", as is frequently pointed out. While what took place at this location is indeed horrific and inhuman (and not recommended for kids), today it is clearly used for propaganda. For this reason, I found it very interesting. All the signboards, while naturally also... More

This is a fairly dark place, with graphic reproductions of the various abuses and tortures that went on here while the prison was in use. I went with a Vietnamese guide who could not even enter the prison because of the emotional pain it caused him. Worth checking out, but probably not for the faint of heart.

A perfect and shocking example of mans inhumanity to his fellow man. What the South Vietnamese did to their countrymen aided and abetted by the Americans should disgust any person who visits this place.

Nothing original. All rebuilt. Terrible facsimiles of prisoners and guards. Just another Phu Quoc tourist trap.

This is a good place if you are interested in the war history. I don't think you need to spend more than 15-30 minutes here so if you are passing then pop in. Entry is free. I had seen a lot of war based things in Saigon so when I got to Phu Quoc maybe I had seen enough. Others... More

Interesting place to visit. Prison was free of charge to visit, documented the horrors of the Vietnam war with many statues and some write ups. Not a very huge place so we managed to finish it in about an hour. Visit if you are a fan of war history!

Mannequins of Vietnamese prisoners being tortured and a solid preservation of a very scary place for some to have survived.

This was a hell on earth. In here, you will find the sadness memories of the Vietnam war, where people abused people. We will see the value of peace in here.
