In many Vietnam tours, Phu Quoc is one of the most amazing destinations with beautiful landscapes and wonderful local people. Therefore, there are thousands of people visiting Phu Quoc island each year. However, if you want to have an unforgettable trip to Phu Quoc island, you should spend time reading the post to know more about the weather on the island.
The tropical climate of Phu Quoc Island can be described as either “dry or sunny” or “wet” depending on the season. The correct classification of the weather in the “monsoonal subtropical monsoon” island is primarily influenced by the tropical monsoon (heavy rainfall) with strong south-easterly winds.
Phu Quoc is an island separated from the mainland and also the largest island in Vietnam with an area of up to 574 square kilometers. The island also belongs to the Gulf of Thailand. It is located quite close to Cambodia which is just 14 nautical miles from the coast of Kampot province.
Phu Quoc in the dry season is very comfortable
From Vietnam, the island is 65 nautical miles (about 120 kilometers) from Rach Gia town (Kien Giang province) and 25 nautical miles (about 45 kilometers) from Ha Tien town (Kien Giang province).
You can visit Phu Quoc Island all-time in the year because of its beautiful island, but if you want to avoid rain and sea waves, it is best to come to the “dry season.” The best weather in Phu Quoc is from November to March.
Furthermore, these months also coincide with Christmas, New Year in Vietnam, Spring break, and Tet holiday, so here it is expected to be very crowded. The average temperature is 30 degrees Celsius with a clear blue sky and very calm waters with a clear view. The humidity is also much lower. During this time all travel companies are working at their full capacity to serve tourists.
If you travel in the peak season, you have to book the room in advance. However, Phu Quoc Island is still relatively new, and many new resorts and resorts are under construction. At the moment airfares will also be slightly more expensive, but the government is still subsidizing most airlines to keep ticket prices relatively low to increase the number of visitors to the island.
If you want to visit Phu Quoc at no more than busy times, the atmosphere is still hot and sunny, and the price of the hotel or resort is low, you should come in April, May, June or October. In April and May, there is high humidity, and the temperature on the island is also the hottest and October will have at least one rainy day.
Traveling in October, you can visit some places like Ham Ninh village
Furthermore, October is also the time when most hotels, resorts, restaurants, and even government projects aiming to improve or expand infrastructure are deployed (such as building more rooms, improving roads, traffic, etc.), so sometimes in peace, there will be a bit noisy and postpone the quiet moment.
Heavy monsoons occur in July, August, and September. During the Phu Quoc rainy season, the roads are flooded and muddy, and you can not move freely around the island. Riding a motorcycle during the rainy season is very difficult. However, there is a good chance that you can take a look at beautiful waterfalls and even rainbows.
If you plan to visit the island during this time, you should be sure to bring raincoats, umbrellas, mosquito repellent and proper technology equipment. Moreover, in the rainy season, you go to the coast in the southeast of the island near the town of An Thoi, the water here is usually smooth and precise, mainly in Sao Beach and Bai Khem beach.
