Why Phu Quoc National Park is special ?

Phu Quoc National Park is situated in the north-east of the island, and the northern and eastern boundaries of the national park follow the coastline. The topography of the national park is hilly, although not particularly steep. The highest point in the national park is Mount Chua at 603 m. The national park is drained by numerous, mainly seasonal, streams. The only sizeable river on the island is the Rach Cua Can river, which drains the southern part of the national park, and flows into the sea on the west coast of the island.

The forest appears to be in good condition, particularly at higher elevations, although forest at lower elevation is degraded. The forest is characterised by members of the Fabaceae. To date, 929 plant species have been recorded on Phu Quoc island. At lower elevations in some areas, the national park supports distinctive formations of Melaleuca sp. forest, characterised by tall trees and an open, park-like structure.

Tips for you

  • On this dirt road, there was a typical fishermen village called Rach Vem at the kilometer stone number 12. There was a sign saying Rach Vem: 1,5 kms on the right. Get there for a walk. Then, when you will be back to the dirt road, you will drive through 10 kms of immaculate forest leading to Ganh Dau. Make few stops. Cut off the engine and listen for a while. You are in the national park.
