Phu Quoc, Vietnam's largest island is situated in the gulf of Thailand. The drop-shaped island is 48 km in length, and from 3 to 28 km breadth wise. all in all it has 1320km2 and about 70000 inhabitants are living on it. Compared to other islands, Phu Quoc has a very good infrastructure, like for example: an airport, several harbors, wide roads, hospital, post-office, police-station and a beautiful market.
