Checking out Phu Quoc International Airport

 photo 20150426_120620_zpsn1ii1hes.jpgIt’s been 4 years since we last visited Phu Quoc and visiting it this past weekend, we were very much surprised of the changes that has taken place — especially the Phu Quoc now International Airport!

The airport staff was efficient and even if there was no tubes to get on the plane, the airport bus shuttled everyone to the plane on the runway. And can I say, that from the gate to the plane, it was just less than 20 meters away!

Besides Tan Son Nhat International Airport, I’ve only been to 4 other airports (Danang, Nha Trang, HCMC, and PQ), and PQ is the best I’ve seen so far. But then again, it’s been years since I’ve last visited Danang and Nha Trang.

    Dear friend,

    I am living in Phu Quoc and I confirm the new int’l airport opened in the late 2012, not in 2011, could you edit the info?
