10/50.-Phu Quoc, Long Beach, after sunset


The first inhabitants of Phu Quoc were Chinese and Vietnamese who earned their living with the sea cucumbers. In the 19th century the French set up some rubber and coconut plantations in the island. During the Vietnam-American War a big POW detention camp was built in the South of the island.

In 1975 the island was liberated. Since then, tourism has developed fast. Mainly during the last decade.
