Phu Quoc is known as a famous tourist destination in Vietnam as well as “the pearl” island in the beautiful country. The place attracted tourists by amazing and beautiful places for traveling as well as unique dishes, especially seafood. Furthermore, the weather of Phu Quoc island is quite good so that you can visit the site at any time of the year.
However, to have a good trip here during the rainy season (from July to December), you should pay attention to some tips below.
Restrict boat trips
The rainy season is usually the first hurricane season. Phu Quoc is not affected by typhoons. Some hurricanes can affect the movement of vessels. There are delegations to Ha Tien pier and no way to pass Phu Quoc by boat or ferry. Therefore, if you want to be safe on your trip, you should choose other transports instead of the Phu Quoc cruise trip.
Do not go to the road when it rains
Although Phu Quoc is not as persistent as in Saigon, it’s usually heavy rain. Phu Quoc has so many trees that the way to the rainy day is hazardous. Therefore, you should not try to go out when it’s rain because perhaps it will be dangerous for you.
Avoid going to the forest
Swimming in Phu Quoc on rainy days is very dangerous
Besides famous beaches, Phu Quoc is known as the home of extensive woodland and Phu Quoc national park with a lot of rare animals and ecosystems such as primary forest, mangrove forest, and cajuput forest.
However, because the trail in the woods is reddish, the rainy season is prone to a slippery slope, and the rain restricts everyone's view. In this case, staying in the hotel is the best option.
Be careful when swimming
Phu Quoc beach is quite peaceful and calm. However, in the rainy season, the sea is no longer quiet with many strong waves. Some days when Phu Quoc are affected by storms, there are often waves. Visitors should avoid swimming or diving in the sea to assure their safety.
