Hi, I will be travelling in SE Asia this summer and will be visiting( amongst many other places!) Can Tho in Vietnam and Kampot in Cambodia. I have around 5 days to spend on a beach and the 2 that I am considering are Phu Quoc and Koh Tansay, but can't decide between them!
We are a couple with a 3 yer old child, but well used to backpacking and staying in beach huts/hostels, so I'm not looking for "resort" type mid range hotels or anything, although wouldn't turn down air conditioning! (but its not a deal breaker) And we wish to avoid "party" places. We are looking for a very laid back place with a nice beach and water that we can take the 3 year old in, so a shallow sandy beach, not rocky. We also love good food. It must have budget accomodation and not be too difficult to get to as my 3 yer old son will only put up with so many long, bumpy bus rides! We will be there in late August, which I believe is rainy season - will the sea be too rough to take my son in for a paddle - we won't be swimming as such as he's too small :)
Any thoughts? Which would you choose, or would you choose somewhere else entirely?
