1.2. The best time to visit Phu Quoc

Summer in Phu Quoc is in the rainy season, which is “opposite” to other coastal locations where this time is the ideal time for “vitamin Sea” excursions. Since this is the island’s dry season, October through April of the following year is the ideal time to visit Phu Quoc. This time of year is ideal for enjoyable activities since it is not overly sunny, the temperature is only about 27 degrees Celsius, and the sea is quiet. Additionally, this is the busiest time of year for travel to Phu Quoc.

In Phu Quoc, May through September is considered the rainy season. This is the season of rain and floods, even though the island, which lies in the Gulf of Thailand, does not directly welcome storms. This could make some activities more difficult, such diving to view coral and night squid fishing. Still, you may still choose Phu Quoc for your summer holiday because this is the busiest time of year for beach tourism; you just need to plan your itinerary and keep an eye on the weather.
