PHU QUOC – A couple of days before the Lunar New Year holiday (Tet), the night market on Phu Quoc Island off the southern province of Kien Giang becomes bustling with hundreds of foreign tourists visiting each day.

Located along Vo Thi Sau Street in Duong Dong Town, this pedestrian-friendly market opens from around 5 p.m. until mid night and caters mainly to tourists. The market is one of the most popular attractions on the island, offering a wide variety of food, beverages, souvenirs and other services.
