NDO – Diving into the jade waters of Phu Quoc would satisfy every visitor coming to Vietnam’s largest island. But there is one thing worth trying once in a lifetime - enjoying the exquisite beauty of the southernmost island at sunset.

Phu Quoc – dubbed the Pearl Island – is well known for its blue seas, long sandy beaches and wild beauty. However, not everyone has the opportunity to fully admire the island's stunning beauty from above in the sunset, a stunning view offered from the new cable car system that opened earlier this year.

From the cable car, visitors are treated to a true spectacle, as they are observe the sun as its light dims to a small red circle and its rays spread softly across the water, touching the clouds with a blush of pink across the dusk bruised skies. The sea is dotted with boats rushing to the wharf, or waiting to embark on a nighttime fishing trip.

The sun turns the sea to gold, making Phu Quoc’s sunset a priceless treasure.

The cable car system leads to Sun World Hon Thom Nature Park, a new entertainment complex on Hon Thom Island.

Visitors can enjoy sea sports here, such as scuba-diving, kayaking, parasailing, or canoeing around the island.

Hon Thom features many beautiful beaches and one of the most beautiful is Trao, where visitors can dive into jade waters and relax in the sun on the pristine sands.

The lush green orchard on the island is also worth exploring.

This summer, Sun World Hon Thom Nature Park offers a special deal for families with children - when buying an adult cable car ticket worth VND500,000, customers will be offered a child for VND350,000 (with the baby under 1,3m). The promotion will last until September 30.
