The weather and climate in Phu Quoc Island, as well as the southwest of Vietnam, has two seasons: rainy season and dry season. And the more beautiful weather in Phu Quoc is the dry season, starting from September to March moon phases calendar (equivalent to October to April in world calendar). It is also considered the tourist season of Phu Quoc island for many tourists both domestic and foreign.

Due to crowded tourists in the summer, consumer prices and services in Phu Quoc is quite expensive. If you want to travel to Phu Quoc at this time around, you need to book a hotel in Phu Quoc Island and flight ticket from Hanoi to Phu Quoc in Hanoi or in the country where you live.

Speaking of hotels, in the summer, 4-star hotels are very crowded with tourists from the US, France, Britain, Japan, Singapore ... So the room price is higher than other days, while 2-star and 3-star hotels are cheap and more stable. You should choose the suitable type of room depending on your financial.

In addition, you should book a hotel room and airline ticket to Phu Quoc since you plan because there are often many Vietnamese families usually travel to Phu Quoc at the weekend.




I would also want to talk a little more about the weather and climate in Phu Quoc. This island stretches from north to south (located at the end of Vietnam Map, adjacent to the Gulf of Thailand) and has Ham Ninh mountain in the middle. In the dry season, the northeast monsoon - cold winds blowing from the East Sea (some one may call South China Sea) - Pacific Ocean to the south- makes big waves on the east coast of the island of Phu Quoc, there may be a lot of garbage washed ashore. So, if you travel to Phu Quoc at this season, you should choose the resort or hotel that is located in the western edge to enjoy the beauty of Phu Quoc.

In contrast, at the time from April to August moon phases calendar (approximately May to September in world calendar) is the rainy season and the low season of tourism in Phu Quoc.

Why is there a rainy season? Because at that time, the southwest monsoon blows from the Gulf of Thailand to the South of Vietnam causing thunderstorms in the afternoon, lasting several months in a row.

In the rainy season, the west coast of Phu Quoc (as Ong Lang Beach, Dai beach, Truong beach) will have large waves, there are sometimes a lot of garbage drifted ashore under the influence of the southwest monsoon. So you should choose the resort or hotel that is located on the east coast (as Sao beach, Khem beach) for calm waves.

In conclusion, depending on the time, you should book a hotel room at a appropriate place, otherwise, you will lost the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of Phu Quoc Island. If you want to visit Phu Quoc, you can order package tours from Hanoi, Saigon or Rach Gia - Kien Giang or move from Sihanoukville in Cambodia to Phu Quoc.
