Vietnam: Phu Quoc Island

Phu Quoc Island, Vietnam:

Known for pepper plantations and fish sauce, this small Island off the coast of Vietnam is also home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.  Fishing harbors, diving, snorkeling, cheap massages on the beach, a nice market and simply lounging around are just a few favorite pastimes. People are kind, friendly and hospitable.  Beaches are peaceful.  Life is good.

From Long Beach you can rent a motorbike and take a nice 20-30 min drive to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.  When I went in early 2010 we took a beautiful drive on a red dirt road with chickens, dogs, cows and the like running around freely.  Just be careful not to run them over!
