Phu Quoc Island has been ranked eighth in a list of 20 best honeymoon destinations by Rough Guides, a leading British publisher of travel and reference information.
It has been slotted behind Treasure Beach (Jamaica), Santorini (Greece), Buenos Aires (Argentina), Kwazulu-Natal (South Africa), Venice (Italy), The Great Ocean Road (Australia), and Kerala (India).
“Asia is full of honeymoon-worthy islands, but Phu Quoc remains one of the most appealing,” the website said.
“Though it has undeniably been ‘discovered’ now, the level of development here is still relatively low key, enabling you to really kick back and enjoy the palm-backed soft-sand beaches and warm waters.
“Phu Quoc is also a starting point for tours to the unspoilt An Thoi Islands, the water around which are ideal for snorkelling.”
