Closing #9 note when coming to Phu Quoc Night Market

1/ Eat seafood, just rush into any restaurant to see fresh seafood swimming in the pool, the price is clear.

2/ Bien mai and crab are 2 must-try seafood dishes when traveling to Phu Quoc night market in particular & anywhere in Phu Quoc in general. Cheap, fresh, extremely delicious. On the contrary, the porcupine should only try to know because it is expensive (30K-50K depending on size) but actually it only has a little bit of bricks, which is not too special.

3/ Phu Quoc night market has dozens of stalls selling Thai ice cream rolls and they are generally delicious. However, after examining 4 rows + observing, I recommend you to eat at Hoang Bi (the main gate junction, on the right), very rich in flavor but with fruit, not just syrup, really fresh. much more.

4/ The candy is just like the umami, you should only try it and watch as people make the candy to make it taste good.

5/ The beef cake is easier to eat than the jaggery beef cake because it is soft and supple, not powdery like the jaggery beef cake. Of course, anyone who can't eat these two types will see something like this, but if you can, you'll be addicted


6/ All kinds of dishes related to jaggery seeds are ok, choose any product for many jaggery to order. Palm kernels are more expensive than jaggery, eat more soft and supple, you must try.

7/ Not only eating but going to the night market, so experience buying things from pearls & buy a handmade wallet/ passport, engraved with your name & decor according to your preferences.

8/ The famous specialty Chou Chou peanuts are only available at Phu Quoc night market, but now there have been 3 more brands claiming to be Chou Chou, a total of 4. However, you should buy it at the first row from the side gate of Nguyen Trai Street, turn in, the right and the best, all the rows in the center of the night market are not.

9/ Be careful with tourist services at the night market. Although dubbed the best night market in Phu Quoc. But now Phu Quoc night market has a lot of people, selling 1-day tours, car rental. However, these people do not sit at fixed counters but often follow, entice and invite customers to buy services.

It is really hard to trust and there are no guarantees to visitors about the credibility of these individuals.
