Stepping from the entrance, you will walk on a path paved with small bricks and look at the green trees on both sides, making you feel completely relaxed.

After only 30 minutes of walking, you will come to a waterfall about 2m high. At the foot of the waterfall, there is a lake about 1-1.5m deep. Tranh stream originates from clear streams on the majestic Ham Ninh mountain range. Each stream of water flows through each rock and tree stump, creating a beautiful scene of pristine mountains and forests of Phu Quoc.

Enjoy the rich taste of myrtle wine

The journey will not be complete if you have not enjoyed a glass of myrtle wine.

Explore the Fish Sauce House

Having come to Phu Quoc, it is impossible not to discover the typical fish sauce barrel houses here. You will be able to visit and be introduced to the typical Phu Quoc fish sauce and its elaborate production process.

After the fish is harvested, it will be washed and incubated in tanks with a large capacity that can hold from 15 to 20 tons of fish. In the period from 6 months to 1 year, fish sauce will be taken from large barrels and classified based on the percentage of protein to determine different selling prices. Here, you will be guided by technicians to distinguish various products in stages based on their color and taste….

You can try the sauce directly to feel all the essence in every drop created by the talented hands of the islanders.
