They can also buy local specialties and souvenirs. Tourists will return to the ship at 6 pm the same day and move on to other destinations.

In January 2024, Kien Giang expects to welcome 790,435 visitors. The number of international tourists arriving by sea is increasing.

In 2024 and early 2025, there are 4 registered cruise ships that will bring thousands of international tourists to visit and have fun by sea.

To meet the needs of international tourists coming to the island by sea, in 2024, the Phu Quoc International Passenger Terminal will be temporarily put into operation, contributing to facilitating 5-star cruise ships to dock and easily transport around 3,000-4,000 passengers.
