FISHING VILLAGES : Experience the daily life of local fishermen at Ham Ninh village or Cua Can village. You might even try their seafood prepared in a typical Phu Quoc style.
COI NGON MUSEUM is just a short walk away from Cassia Cottage and offers a selection of artifacts from 1700 onwards and dedicates areas of the museum based on the artifacts dates and on timeperiods such as wars.
TEMPLES & PAGODAS in Phu Quoc are interesting. A unique one is Dinh Cau Temple that is part shrine and part lighthouse, built in honor of Thien Hau (the Goddess of the sea) who provides protection for the fisherman. Perched on top of rocks at the mouth of the Duong Dong River it has a shrine, the lighthouse, as well as terrace overlooking Duong Dong Town, the port, and the sea.
Built under the architectural style of Holy See Temple Tay Ninh, Cao Dai Temple is an impressive tourist attraction in Phu Quoc. Phu Quoc is the birthplace of Caodaism, a monotheistic religion which combines Zoroastrianism, Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, Christianity, and Islam. Its central tenant is that we may follow different religions but we all share one true God.
Su Muong Pagoda was founded in 1932 by Nguyen Kim Muon, a well-respected accountant turned monk. Climb up over 60 stone steps to reach the main hall, built on a 3 meter thick stone. To enjoy spectacular views, go to the back of the property and follow the path up to the old pagoda to the first level.
Situated near Sao Beach, Coconut Prison was built by the French during colonial times. But it is most (un)famous for its role in both the Vietnamese-American war and the war between Vietnam & Cambodia where it was used as a prisoner-of-war camp. The museum is very graphic and may not be suitable for young children.
