The Vinpearl resort is beautiful, but after a few days of doing the same things, we wanted to explore outside and try some new activities.

I missed Duong Dong town and all of the activities of the night market. I fell in love with the people of Phu Quoc the very first time I visited the island. The night market is about 20mi/32km from Vinpearl resort.

The night market on Phu Quoc is great for seafood lovers. We had a good night here enjoying all the food that the Vinpearl resort didn't offer.

You can order from the menu or just choose what you want and tell them how you'd like it.

Fresh from the ocean. These squid were still alive and constantly changing their colors.

What would you like for dinner?

Vinpearl Safari

Vinpearl Safari is the first and only open zoo in Vietnam. I was excited to take our boy to see all the animals without having to go all the way to Africa. We were sitting on a tour bus, surrounded by animals roaming freely.

It was a fun experience for him to see all these animals.

The bus portion of the tour was over and we were outside the dangerous animals area. For the second part of the tour, we walked around the open zoo. It's a very large area and the weather was really hot. The walk turned out to be too much for little feet and he got sunburned despite tons of sunscreen.

The water park was really a fun place. I lost my sunglasses here and the staff helped me to find them. I was impressed by their service.

This grouper was huge, more than twice my size.

Back to the resort
This was precious for me, just relaxing and watching him have fun without worrying about his safety.

Overall, it was a fun family vacation. The boy still remembers and talks about it. Maybe, we'll come back someday 😊.

Thanks so much for your time, my friends.
Have a great day!



Vietnam is on my bucket list, would be nice to spend a few months in that country. I would really love to check out Hạ Long Bay, looks like a great place for landscape photos.

Yes, Hạ Long is great for pictures. I love it but I made a mistake flying to Hai Phong instead of Hanoi. It was cloudy on our trip around February. Don't know if you want to spend a few months in the heat but that would be an interesting experience 😄.

I live in Arizona and I spent a couple months in Thailand in the summer, so I know how brutal the heat can be. The humidity is what gets you in those tropical locations

If you like Thailand, maybe you'll like Vietnam too. My family got sick from the weather, not me. Beaches, seafood, spicy authetic Vietnamese food are all I need 😄. Foods are just fresh and we eat everything. Hahaha

Nice collection, it looks like a really cool place to stay for a vacation!!!

Thanks 😊! You're right 😉. I love the island so much that we keep coming back many times.

Very nice initial shot there dew, fun times!

Thanks Glenn! It's my favorite shot and cover picture 😄.

Looks a little better than Coney Island. Ha ha.. I grew up in Brooklyn, will follow you to see the things I missed and the new things you find interesting. Besides your smile is delightful.

Haha. My son likes Coney Island too. You don't follow many people so thank you 😉. Your compliment made my smile even bigger. Haha. Enjoy your Sunday 😉. I'm having my coffee 😁.

Awesome vacation!!! Wish I could be there !

Thanks, Joe 😁! Wish I could travel like you too. Just enjoyed your "Train to come" with a cup of tea. That was good 😉.

Great post dew, Vietnam and this iceland must be perfect place for vacation. My be I can visit some time.

Thanks 😄!Good idea! It's a very beautiful island with jungle, waterfalls, beautiful beaches, honest people, fresh seafood, and international airport. I love it so much and want to retire there if I can make it 😄.

My be you have more pictures from around the iceland, could be nice to see.

Yeah, I'll find and post them. It will take me a while though 😊.

Obvious you had a Great time, and it is so Nice there when I See all th pictures. Good memories are made. Enjoy life together as much as possible .

Thanks! That's so nice of you 😊. You're right. The little one grows up so fast, we have to enjoy him as much as we could. Have a good day 😊.

What a wonderful place to visit --looks like the perfect combination of beautiful scenery, relaxation, great food, and interesting things to see and do.

Aww... Thanks! You're right! It's my number 1 choice in Vietnam. Hope to see your new post soon 😊. Enjoy your Sunday evening 😊.

Wow you stayed there!? Must've been 9999999999991 per night..

Haha! There were some damages but we spent a similar amount on plane tickets from New York to Sai Gon so... 😉.

Hi! @dewdrop. A very impressive new resort on the island! You and your family are on holiday, that's why I didn't see your new posts for several,days!

Lovely photos, lovely place, nice people! What else could I ask for?!
But you boy's cheeks are very red! He must be feeling the heat in SE Asia!


Hi, Kaminchan! Thanks so much for a very nice and thoughtful comment 😊. This vacation was last year and the boy goes to school now 😊. He was ok with the heat but walking a few hours in the afternoon was not a good idea. That was my fault but he had fun so he doesn't remember that part 😀. Have a good night Kaminchan 😊.

Hi! Just have to come back to look at those photos of the aquarium again! Those fish just seem so unreal in terms of size and colours!!

Nice photos, will have another look again. Just couldn't get over the fish!

Hey! So happy you enjoyed them. Thanks 😃. Please come back again. Haha. Have a good night 😉.
