Cashew nut plantations

Another lesser known food that is grown in a fair abundance on Phu Quoc island is the cashew nut. If you travel to the more remoter parts of the north around Bai Thom you’re likely to see all the cashew nut tree with there hugh pear shaped husks when in season and the far smaller cashew nut attached at the end. Harvesting and picking the nuts is very manual intensive work, however it’s interesting seeing all these trees.

Mount Chua

Mount Chua at 603 meters is the highest mountain on Phu Quoc and forms part of the Ham Ninh sandstone chain of mountains that stretch for 30km along the eastern edge of Phu Quoc. There are plans in future to build a walking trail up to a lookout at the top of the Mount Chua. The views over the national park and the island should be excellent.
