After finding out that the weather went from a sunny 30 degrees at south Vietnam, to a rainy 20 degrees north Vietnam, we decided to stay south.
After a look on google maps, we decided to go to Phu Quoc Island, which we didn't regret for a second!
We had to pass through the Cambodian boarder stop...
...through the ultra secure Vietnam boarder stop...
And after a boat ride to the Island, we were there!
The first evening we went for a wander along the beach to see what was at the end, needless to say, the contrast between the tourist area of the beach and the non-tourist part was rather stark:
Seafood was the order of the day while we were there, as were the "Coconut Holiday" drinks, a coconut (surprise surprise) hacked open and a shot of rum pored in. AWESOME!
One evening we decided to go Squid fishing. Bridget took command of the boat for a bit:
Passing the locals:
And doing a spot of fishing!
I found it rather stressful and energetic:
Damn it, I didn't have a tissue available before this shot...
YAY! I caught a squid!
Mmm, looks tasty!
Someone also caught a tiny blowfish:
Cooking up our catch!
Back to more relaxing on the beach outside our hotel:
Another evening, another dinner on the beach:
Next up, some diving pics!
