What you can expect
Venture out for a morning of sightseeing in Phu Quoc on a tour that shows you a wealth of the island’s cultural landmarks. Glean the production secrets of local food specialities, uncover the traditions of Caodaism at the Cao Dai Temple, and end with a visit to Duong Dong’s market.
Start your day with pick-up from your hotel, and journey in a comfortable coach to your first stop, the Sim Wine Distillery. Learn about the distillation process of this sweet, flowery wine, which is made with the fruits of the rose myrtle plant, and get the chance to taste some before purchasing bottles to take home. Afterward, indulge your senses with visits to a fish sauce production facility and a peppercorn garden, where you can see the production of these island specialities in action.
Next, you’re off to the Cao Dai Temple, an important centre for the Vietnamese religion known as Caodaism. As you admire the temple’s colourful architecture, your guide introduces you to the concepts of this relatively recent monotheistic tradition, which combines elements from other religions including Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism.
Head back to Duong Dang for a final stop at the town’s busy outdoor market. Mingle with locals browsing for fresh produce and seafood, and enjoy time to do some shopping of your own before your guide drops you off at your hotel.
