Phu Quoc For New Years & Tet

We’ve been celebrating New Year’s Eve on Phu Quoc Island for over three years now and have come to know which places you should visit in order to make the most of your time on this unique island. This guide is written for all audiences and kid friendly places will be specifically called out. Most bars, clubs, hotels, resorts and restaurants will have some sort of event happening on New Year’s Eve, but not all will be busy.

Fireworks: A select few venues will light fireworks when the clock strikes twelve. The grand firework show will be held at Vinpearl Resort located in Ganh Dau and it is widely expected that the J.W. Mariott Phu Quoc resort will also have fireworks.

Where To Eat In Phu Quoc

After the sun has set, fuel up for the night at these popular places to eat:
