We were just on Phu Quoc and they are building the road south- 2 lanes each way to Bai Sai beach. The north is still a dirt road to Bai Dai beach. I hope it stays that way for a while as we loved how remote and untouched the north was.

Thanks RichardG and Maurizio04. Very interesting and helpful insights. Any thoughts on a hotel in Phu Quoc?

When last there, we stayed at the Saigon Phu Quoc Resort and had a bungalow on the beach for about $100/night. On another visit, we stayed at the Sasco Blue Lagoon and the room was equally nice for a little less money. I see Mai House Resort is still high in the reviews and ratings and I considered this hotel at the time. You may want to consider the Veranda if you want to splurge. Things have changed so much in the last five years, I would be afraid to provide a referral. Checkout the reviews on the forums. Good luck and Happy travels!


Thanks much for your road update.
