The rainy season in Phu Quoc usually lasts from April and October. The peak of storms is August and September. You should avoid going to Phu Quoc on your own during these two months because it rains heavily, rough seas, fallen trees. Falling is very dangerous, most entertainment activities are closed.

Some notes when travel Phu Quoc with families with kid
Summer is hot but it is the wish of the kid because every season the cicadas call that summer vacation is coming. The children will be rewarded by their parents with gifts and a trip to relax after a busy year busy with work. Adults traveling to Phu Quoc need a lot of things to bring, but children need even more. Especially the items that parents should prepare separately before traveling to ensure that their children have a happy and healthy trip with their family. Young parents taking their children to Phu Quoc for the first time will surely find it difficult to remember all the things to bring when taking their children to Phu Quoc.
1. Clothes to bring for children
Small children need to pay special attention to the clothes they bring when traveling to Phu Quoc. This island has cool air all year round: the eyes are cool in the early morning, the afternoon sun is a little hot in the summer, the night is a little chilly by the sea breeze.
Therefore, parents need to bring their children clothes with cool cotton material because inherently the child's body temperature is usually higher than that of adults and is more prone to heat. In addition, parents should also bring some long-sleeved clothes for the children to wear every afternoon when the wind rises.
2. Baby food
Parents and grandparents will be extremely interested in Phu Quoc's rich cuisine with seafood paradise, but even if you eat until your stomach is full, you will not be bored such as grilled porcupine with onion fat, steamed Ham Ninh crab, mushroom porridge,...
So what will the children eat to ensure nutrition and good for their immature digestive system? Mothers should prepare instant porridge or order seafood soup, minced meat porridge at the restaurant to ensure that parents have a hearty seafood party that the children will also feel delicious and full of food eat on its own.
3. Spare medicine is something that must always be in your baby's luggage
Parents do not forget to bring medicine when traveling to Phu Quoc, young children are also very easy to get sick when exposed to new climates. Therefore, it will not be superfluous when in the suitcase of parents' clothes, there are more medicine bags including basic medicines such as fever reducer, cough medicine, flu medicine, vitamins. Young guests are sometimes much more difficult to please than parents.
4. What medicines should mothers bring to children when traveling?
Antipyretic: This is the most important medicine because if the weather changes or digestive disorders, it is not uncommon for the baby to have a fever. But fever reducing medicine for children cannot be used with adults, so even if you are in a 5-star hotel, it is difficult to find medicine right away.
Fever-reducing patches : similar to fever-reducing medicines. Patches will help your baby reduce fever and be more comfortable
Mosquito repellent: You need to bring this drug to fight insects, especially in forests, many trees ...
Personal stickers: Your baby may get unwanted scratches when moving, so be sure to prepare them.
5. The travel stroller is the ideal companion for the whole family
If your baby can't walk yet, prepare a stroller to bring your baby to travel! Children who sit in a stroller to travel or visit will enjoy and feel much more comfortable than if their parents keep holding them in their arms, causing hand fatigue and creating a large distance between the baby and nature.
Small note: All airlines and high-speed train lines allow you to bring a stroller for your baby without paying any extra fees.
6. Beach costumes and sand play equipment
What kid doesn't like water and doesn't like sand? So prepare swimwear, sand shovel toys for your baby. Coming to Phu Quoc, it is indispensable to have fun and immerse yourself in the beautiful and pure beaches.
