Visit Phu Quoc National Park, a UNESCO site and discover old growth trees and rare wildlife where adventurous travellers can enjoy a range of outdoor pursuits throughout their tropical vacation.
About 90% of Phu Quoc is forested and the trees and adjoining marine environment enjoy official protection. Phu Quoc National Park comprises more than half of Phu Quoc Island’s northern region, this is the last large stand of forest in the south. Declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 2010, this massive natural attraction spans over 314, 000 square metres of unique flora and fauna, evergreen forest, and dense mountain ranges.
While the majority of Phu Quoc National Park is strictly protected by the Vietnamese government for research purposes, visitors can make their way to the Khu Rung Nguyen Sinh Forest Reserve via Ganh Dau Village as it’s accessible for camping, hiking, bird-watching, and photography. Nature lovers can also spot rare wildlife such as long-tailed macaques, silver langurs, slow lories, otters, and hornbills.

Located 26 kilometres north of Duong Dong, the best way to get to Phu Quoc National Park is by booking a day tour or renting a motorcycle.
