Italian luxury cruise ship AIDA Bella with nearly 2,000 German and Australian travelers on board arrived in Phu Quoc, a famous tourist island city off Kien Giang Province in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta region, on Friday, a day ahead of the 2024 Lunar New Year.

The vessel docked at the Duong Dong Port of Phu Quoc at around 6:30 am, after three days of sea travel, said Nguyen Thi Bich Dieu, director of Dong Noi Tourism Co., Ltd., a local travel firm.

These international visitors will take tours to numerous attractive destinations in Phu Quoc, such as the Phu Quoc night market, Vinwonders Phu Quoc, Vinpearl Safari Phu Quoc, Hon Thom cable car system and Cau Hon (Kiss Bridge).

They will also take part in many exciting activities in Phu Quoc National Park, explore the island's most beautiful beaches, and visit traditional fish sauce villages and the Phu Quoc pepper farm.

“This is the second ship to visit the pearl island of Phu Quoc in early 2024. As these travelers have arrived on the traditional Vietnamese Tet, they will have chances to discover interesting things about the customs and cultural beauty of the island's people during the festival,” Dieu said.

She expressed her belief that such trips will contribute to promoting the tourism cooperation between Germany and Australia in the coming time.  

Earlier on February 2, Phu Quoc welcomed the Italian 5-star cruise ship Costa Serena that brought around 1,100 international guests from Thailand, the U.S., China, and other countries.

Since early this year, Phu Quoc has received an estimate of over 500,000 arrivals of tourists, including more than 82,600 of foreign travelers, according to the city’s administration.

Previously a district of Kien Giang, Phu Quoc was turned into the country’s first island city on March 1, 2021, pursuant to a resolution issued by the Vietnamese National Assembly’s Standing Committee in late 2020.
