Zoning out on Phu Quoc Island, Vietnam

“What’s that noise?” I ask Kris. “Nothing,” he tells me. Nothing but the gentle waves rolling onto the beach just outside our front door and the occasional fishing boat chugging by. Those are the only pre-dawn noises we heard on Phu Quoc Island, Vietnam.

We feel like we’ve raced through Vietnam, but are thankful we booked a relaxing week beachside where we are back to making simple decisions like, “Should we walk north or south on the beach today?” We eat our meals with our feet in the sand, bob in the water when we get too hot, sway in the hammock in the late afternoons, watch incredible sunsets steps from our bungalow and stretch out on beach chairs to gaze at the stars.

This is life on Phu Quoc Island, Vietnam.

    I love your photographs and descriptions of your travels in Viet Nam. It is amazing to read of the markets, the people and the food prepared for the tourists. I can feel the unexpected pleasure that you two are deriving from being there.

    I was at a Christmas party wherein a guest was thrilled to have just vacationed in Hanoi. My mind could not understand the ravishes of change from the ’60’s to the current time!

    Thanks for enlightening us, your readers on the beauty and culture of this country.
