Meanwhile, many tourists rated the most beautiful beach in Phu Quoc as Sao Beach.

10. Sociable

There are no ethnic minorities such as Northeast - Northwest tourism or other specific regions such as Da Lat tourism, but not because of that, Phu Quoc has no difference. Exploring the cultural beauty and people of Phu Quoc is another factor that makes up Pearl Island's value. Besides the purpose of relaxation, visitors from far away also fall in love with this land because of its warm and friendly features, but there is still something simple and sincere about the people here. With a typical terrain created by the sea and islands, the people living here are primarily fishermen. They go out to sea to catch seafood to trade for a living. Phu Quoc has many residents of Chinese origin who know how to process and cook very well, creating a rich cuisine for Phu Quoc tourism. Although it is a tourist city, Phu Quoc does not give visitors the feeling of being too busy, and there are still small corners of peace and everyday life.
