Our first plan was to fly from Ho Chi Minh city to Bangkok and skip Cambodia, but decided in the end to visit Phu Quoc island as well. There was no train this time, so we had to take a bus. Fortunality it was a sleeping bus, really comfortable and took something like 6 hours. The bus took us to Rach Gia, where we had to stay for a night, because last ferry of the day goes around 2-3pm.
When we arrived to Rach Gia it was raining alot. We checked in to our hotel, Kiet Hong Hotel, which was super nice. They even had a free taxi service, if you want to go somewhere 😀 Beacause we hadnt ate after the morning, we wondered to the great unknown with the rain pouring down on us. So we got some food, free shower and laundry thanks to the rain and thats it for the day.
In the moring we tried to get the tickets to the ferry at 8am but everything was sold out. So we had to take the ferry at 12.45. We used the time to grab something to eat. Wondering around the city, we found a place to play pool. And suddenly it was time to get to the ferry. 3.5h hour ride was pretty nice, you could go outside to enjoy the wind or stay inside.
It was already getting dark when we get to the island. So we found a nice bar on the beach to relax, Rory’s Beach Bar. Very nice place, not so cheap though.
The weather was sunny the next day, so we spent it mostly on the beach, eating, drinking and swimming 😀
