Famiana Resort

Standout sunsets and sea views are just two of the great features at the Famiana Resort. For the best vantage points, head to the beach bar and the pool. The hotel is split into two halves: the Green Villa section and the Beach section. You’ll stay in the Green Villa section but you’ll get use of the facilities in both zones.

Food-wise, you’re spoilt for choice. Dishes from around the world are available in the Garden and Famiana restaurants, while there are also a couple of snack places dotted around. At sunset, the beach bar comes into its own.

Overview of Duong Dong

Duong Dong is the largest town on the Vietnamese island of Phu Quoc. A lively and bustling place, it’s incredibly popular with people looking for a holiday to Vietnam where they can soak up traditional Vietnamese island life and explore the country’s fascinating history.

Stays at the Famiana Resort in Duong Dong aren’t all about the town, though. The surrounding coastline is covered in beautiful beaches, so it’s easy to relax in the sunshine. Plus, Phu Quoc National Park covers half the island, so it’s an ideal spot for explorers.

Things to do in Duong Dong

When you want to venture away from the Famiana Resort, you can relax on Long Beach. As its name suggests, the beach is massive, measuring more than 12 kilometres in length. It’s a top spot for relaxing by day, and if you’re looking to stay out for an evening meal, it’s backed by restaurants and cafes.

The hotel is also only a short taxi journey away from the centre of Duong Dong, where you can enjoy the famous night market. Haggling’s expected from everyone, so play hardball and grab yourself a bargain. After you’ve bought your handmade crafts, explore the temples dotted through the town.

In Duong Dong, a lively town meets picturesque beaches with jungles to explore. You can enjoy a holiday at a pace that suits you.

Resort Summary

Its day and night markets are what make Duong Dong holidays so unique. Haggling is pretty much expected of everyone, so it’s best to try the more relaxed day market if you’re a beginner to bargaining. You can try some easy-going haggling at a street food stall to start off with, getting yourself a bargain on a banh mi, a Vietnamese-style pork baguette. Or you could try and bag yourself some handmade crafts at a knockdown price.

But it’s when the sun goes down that the markets really come into their own. The night market is where you can step things up a gear and put your daytime haggling skills into practice by buying some fresh seafood. Fishermen bring their hauls in right by the riverside and you can purchase their catch practically straight from the net.
