GETTING AROUND THE ISLAND, EXPLORE AT YOUR OWN PACE

Most hotels and guesthouses will help organize a motorbike for you. Just give them enough time – usually only a few hours – and motorbikes can be delivered to where you are staying.
 
In and around the main town of Duong Dong, you can get about very easily on foot. The cooler morning hours are certainly the best times to catch the locals whether be at the local market or along the streets looking for their breakfast of the day! Everything in town is close to hand with shops, restaurants and bars all within short strolling distance of each other.
If you’re looking to head further afield then bicycles are a great option. Away from the busier roads outside of town you’ll find you can ride at a leisurely pace and take in the quiet streets, back roads and beaches whilst getting some mild exercise, try to set off early to avoid the heat of the afternoon sun.
For longer distances, motorbikes are a convenient and a highly affordable way to experience Phu Quoc.
It’s a great experience to be independent and visit parts of the island most people rarely get to see while feeling the wind in your hair.
Phu Quoc’s small size and relatively quiet roads make it ideal for exploring by motorbike so with a map, a sense of adventure and a tank of petrol you’ll be able to tour the country lanes and quiet beaches that most visitors can’t get to.
We recommend the best place to rent a taxi or motorbike is through your Hotel or Resort.
If you’re in a small group, or would just like to sit back and let someone else do the driving, then taxis can be rented by the day for approx. $50 for 6 hours or half day approx. $30 for 4 hours.
Most taxis are 7-seaters so are perfect for families who want to get out to explore and hit some remote beaches.
 
REMEMBER SAFETY COMES FIRST:
Whether you’re cycling or riding a motorbike please be alert at all times.
Don’t be fooled by the slower pace of life on Phu Quoc, vehicles can sometimes be traveling fast.
 
‘Right of Way’ is a very loose term in Vietnam – so look out for vehicles pulling out in front of you or from anywhere for that matter!
+ Make sure that you have a valid license, you must be riding legally to be covered by insurance!
+ Check your insurance. If the bike is bigger than 50cc you may not be covered in case of an accident.
+ Helmets are to be worn at all times and be careful of cheap flimsy looking ones, when you need them, they need to save you!
+ It’s an obvious one but don’t speed or drink and ride, biggest causes of accidents are speed and alcohol
+ Cover up! You catch the sun a lot quicker than you think on a bike
+ Avoid riding at night – street (and some vehicle) lighting is often inadequate and there are plenty of dogs wandering about
