Q. Will everything be open as usual on Phu Quoc?
Many businesses throughout Vietnam have been impacted by the absence of international tourism.

Although not everywhere will be fully open, venues that are will be extra welcoming. As tourists start to return it’s hoped that more businesses will be able to reopen.
