When is the time you should not travel to Phu Quoc?

There are many different answers to this question. Because in each season, Phu Quoc has its beauty.

In the rainy season, Phu Quoc does not seem to have favorable weather for tourism, but it is on the west side like Long Beach and Dai Beach. And on the East coast, like Sao Beach and Khem Beach, it is stunning when the waves just roll slightly, and the water is blue.

The rainy season is also the time when the famous streams of Phu Quoc like Tranh Stream and Da Ban Stream are at their the most beauty. Visitors to these streams in the rainy season can see all the beauty of the stream.

The rainy season is also the season of Tram mushroom - the famous specialty of Phu Quoc. Tram mushroom is a fungus that grows on the decayed Melaleuca carpet and only after the first rains. The season of melaleuca mushroom is very short, only over a month. Therefore, visitors to Phu Quoc in the rainy season will enjoy freshly harvested melaleuca mushrooms.

The period from June to September is also the low season of tourism in Phu Quoc. Therefore, hotels, resorts, and other services here offer discounts at lower prices than the peak season. So, tourists who want to save money can go to Phu Quoc at this time. However,  you should prepare in advance for rain for many days or the impact of storms.
