This is my first time to Phu Quoc island in the far south of Vietnam. During my four night stay at the Eco-resort Bamboo cottage, I’ve been delighted to discover the many hidden gems of the island. My favourite discoveries have been the following places, which are definitely worth a visit for delicious fresh food or a chance to experience a great location -whether educational, spiritual or for pure relaxation:

– Phu Quoc Bee farm for an organic experience and to discover how important bees are to us.

– The authentic fishing village of Ham Ninh to see fishermen offload their daily catch and to eat fresh locally caught seafood.

– The white sands and turquoise waters of Sao beach. I believe one of the best beaches in Vietnam!

– Ho Quoc Pagoda is located along a spectacular coastal road from Sao Beach. This stunning temple is position high in rock face providing a great vista at sunset.

– Duong Dong Night market is certainly a must for sampling local culture and cuisine. They have an enormous choice of fresh seafood on offer as its moments away from the town harbour.

An Easter break to Vietnam has given me the fantastic opportunity to eat and be inspired by yet more fresh, delicious and healthy food from the motherland.
Our delicious meal this evening at Nhà Hàng Ngon (160 Pasteur, Dist.1 Saigon) was Garlic greens, clay pot fish and hot sour soup with fragrant steam rice. Washed down with an ice chilled Saigon beer – simply delicious.
