The most beautiful season
October to April next year is the most beautiful season in Phu Quoc when it is not raining, sunny, cool and the sea is calm, the average temperature is about 27 to 28 degrees Celsius, the highest is about 35 degrees Celsius, no sunshine. harsh and sultry.

No one here
There is a paradox for Phu Quoc tourism that often when the weather is beautiful, it is more empty than the rainy season.

But most of them met with rain, even storms, leading to jams of ferries , planes… not getting the full experience. At the end of the year, domestic tourists travel less, usually on this occasion, visitors to Phu Quoc are mainly foreigners. After Covid-19, this number of visitors has not returned, so Phu Quoc is deserted.
“Domestic tourists mainly focus on June-July when students are off school, convenient to go out with the whole family. However, summer vacations are only suitable for destinations in North and Central Vietnam. , is not suitable for Phu Quoc because this is the rainy season. By the end of the year, when the weather in Phu Quoc is beautiful, it is usually empty. Visitors will have more experiences,” said Mr. Do Viet Hung, a representative of Sao Mai Tourism Company. , a unit specializing in organizing tours of Phu Quoc – Nam Du island, said.
Cheap flight tickets – reasonable room rates and tours

The cheapest flights are on weekdays and the highest tickets are on New Year’s Eve. This is a much lower price than in the summer, when tickets are from 5 million VND or more, even up to 7.5-8 million VND round trip.
Tourists traveling on their own, in addition to benefiting from cheap air tickets, are also lower in room rates. For example, a 4-star hotel in the center of Duong Dong, which in previous years fluctuated between 2.2 and 2.8 million dongs per night, is now only about 1.7 to 2.5 million dongs, depending on class.
When airfares and room rates decrease, tour prices are also low. Currently, a package tour of 4 days and 3 nights at a 3-star hotel from Hanoi costs about 5.5 to 6.5 million VND. Tours at 5-star hotels are also nearly 10% cheaper than in summer.
“The price of the tour to Phu Quoc at the end of the year from Hanoi is about 30-40% cheaper than the average in the summer, the main reason is cheap airfare. Airfares in the peak season account for 60-70% of the tour value. going to Phu Quoc, but now only accounts for about 40%,” added Mr. Do Viet Hung.
