Situated inside Vinpearl Resort & Spa Phu Quoc, VinWonders Phu Quoc is approximately 50 hectares in size, or as big as 93 football fields.

Decked out in a medieval European setting, the European Streetmosphere contains recreations of European streets, such as the Copenhagen flea market. Not only can visitors take a lot of scenic snapshots here, but they can also engage in a real European-style shopping experience.

Fans of fairy tales and families with kids will not want to miss out on the Fantasy World, where you will follow Alice to meet other childhood characters such as the Cheshire Cat and Mad Hatter.

For some fun bonding time with your family, check out the SeaShell Palace, one of world’s five largest aquariums and the largest in Vietnam. Designed to resemble a tortoise-shell , this is a perfect place to marvel at the wonder of sea creatures and learn something new.

Meanwhile, the Adventure World also has plenty of fun rides and spiral slides to keep thrill-seekers entertained. You can transform into Aztec warriors and explore the world of the Maya people, or brace yourselves against the heavy waves of Oahu Pool.

There’s also a Greek-themed zone that’s definitely not for the faint of heart, as it’s home to one of the world’s fastest slides starting at the height of 50M and reaching the speed of 95KM/H in 4 seconds.

Phu Quoc is part of Kien Giang Province and is the largest island in Vietnam with a total area of 574 square kilometers.

Boasting a population of only 103,000, a wide range of pristine beaches, and serene resorts, Phu Quoc is one of the best spots in Vietnam to swim around in the blue sea or read a good book under a tree.

From 2014, Vietnam has allowed all foreign tourists to visit Phu Quoc visa-free for a period of up to 30 days. However, due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, this policy was withdrawn earlier this year.

As Vietnam is on its track to completely eliminating COVID-19, Vietnamese government has recently issued a decree offering foreigners from approved countries 30-day visa-free travel to Phu Quoc.
