In recent years, Phu Quy island has become a more popular destination on the travel list. Covering a total area of around 17.8 s.q.km in the south-central province of Binh Thuan, the island is 56 nautical miles from the center of Phan Thiet city.
The national flag pole on Phu Quoc island is one of the seven of its kind, which was installed on seven outpost islands. Other national flag poles included Tran Island (Quang Ninh province), Bach Long Vi Island (Hai Phong province), Hon La Island (Quang Binh province), Cu Lao Xanh (Binh Dinh province), Con Son Island (Ba Ria – Vung Tau) and Tho Chu Island (Kien Giang province). Work on the Phu Quy Island national flag pole started in June 2015 with a total area of 200 s.q.m. It is an ideal place to admire the sunrise on the island.

The island is locally known as Cu Lao Thu (Mackerel island) as its shape looks like a mackerel. It was named Poulo - Cecir-de-Terre under French domination and Phu Quy under the reign of Emperor Thieu Tri, who ruled Vietnam from 1841 to 1847. In the past, it took visitors six hours to travel by boat from the mainland to the island. But now the travel time has been shortened to 2.5 hours thanks to the launch of speedboats, making Phu Quy more popular among visitors.
Some beautiful living places that you should not miss are Small Beach - Ganh Hang, Hon Tranh - Vung Phat, Banh Xe Lake... The seawater here is so clear that you can see the bottom.
