Visit Local Factories and Farms
Welcome to Phu Quoc Island! Our team will be waiting with name signs, big smiles, and a Maika Tour t-shirt at your port to take you to your cool, air-conditioned transport.
We’ll start our fun-packed day with visits to a variety of farms and factories on the island where local people produce Sim (rose myrtle fruit) wine, fish sauce, pearls, and pepper. There we will learn how these products are made. You’ll have a chance to witness the production process and taste these Phu Quoc specialities. This is a great way to approach the local lifestyle and culture.
Explore Ham Ninh Fishing Village and Enjoy Lunch on Sao Beach
Next, we’ll stop by Ham Ninh fishing village, one of Phu Quoc’s oldest villages that still preserves a peaceful, slow-paced daily life. On your visit, you can see the typical fishing village image with rows of colourful wooden boats, skillfully carved by the locals, docking at the harbour. These boats are essential to their fishing activities and way of life. We’ll walk around the area to experience being a villager, living a simple life, and getting a feel for the sense of community and the friendly neighbours. From Ham Ninh beach, you can see Pirate island, Nghe islet, and Ong Hoi headland in the far distance.
*If time allows, we’ll visit Truc Lam Ho Quoc Zen Monastery which was built on the high mountain, overlooking the sea. Locals and tourists come here to offer incense on Buddist festivals and special days, or just to admire the surrounding landscape and architecture.
We’ll have a short break and enjoy a tasty seafood lunch on Sao Beach surrounded by natural scenery, crystal clear waters, and white-sand shores. You can wander along the beach, sunbathe, or merely contemplate the beauty of the sea before we continue the afternoon.
Travel Back in Time at Coconut Tree Prison (Nha Tu Cay Dua)
One of Phu Quoc’s must-visit sights is Coconut Tree Prison, a harsh place used to imprison soldiers during the war, where you can now see mannequins depicting prisoners’ lives at the time. Although this is not for the faint-hearted, it is worth visiting to learn about the island’s struggles and the effort to make Phu Quoc the beautiful place it is today.
Explore the North of Phu Quoc Island and Immerse Yourself in Nature
Located in the northern half of the island, Ganh Dau Cape remains untouched and is home to breathtaking landscapes. The forest sweeps down to the shore and stops abruptly in front of the white sandy beaches. Magnificent rocks provide an impressive contrast between the ocean and the sky. From Ganh Dau, you can see the fishermen busy with their boats on the shore, or you can even spot the borderland between Vietnam and Cambodia. Pay a visit to Nguyen Trung Truc Temple, a place to commemorate a Vietnamese hero who was a campaign leader during French colonial times.
To wrap up our day, we’ll visit Rach Vem fishing village, a unique coastal village with a floating seafood restaurant, connected to the mainland by wooden bridges. If you don’t come here to enjoy seafood, you can just relax in this quiet area and watch starfish roaming freely in the clear water.
Our tour guide and transport will return you to the port in plenty of time for your departure.

I now refer my friends, family and colleagues, as well as book all of my tours, accommodation and flights with Maika because I feel very lucky to have finally found an organisation in Asia that gives me the confidence to do so.
The tour was very well organized, and the guide spoke very good English. We got to see and experience so many things: Besides visiting a pagoda and Buddha statue, we also went on a boat ride (with a stop to enjoy a coconut drink) and visited local businesses producing rice paper, conical hats and mats. We had fresh fruit and tea for a snack and Pho soup for lunch which was delicious! We had such a good day and would highly recommend this tour!
We went on this tour, two families of four, with children aged 9-12 years old. We were really happy with it and highly recommend. Lin was our guide and she was fantastic, would really do a trip with her again. It was nice to do this privately and easy to adjust with Lin if needed. Maika helped us book the accommodation in Can Tho which we really appreciated. Would highly recommend and for sure do again.
You did a great job looking after all of our family of 7. The kids enjoyed all the tours and especially the Mekong cruise …as did we……because the kids were so happy we got to enjoy some time to ourselves too. I would recommend Maika Tours if your thinking of visiting Vietnam!
