This place might not be so 'off the beaten trail' anymore, but it definitely has that feeling. It's a small fishing town on a beautiful sandy bayon the east coast. The jetty is really long. My driver took me right out to the end on the motorbike for a view back to the shore. This is reputedly a good place to have a fish dish for lunch!
After we got the island, I get sick. Just really high fever, but still...
Normally I got only few decimals little fever, but now I got few degrees.
Our hotels doctor was somewhere (surprise) so we have to go to hospital. It was't so easy than it maybe sounds like... taxidriver didn't speak english at all. After speaking by hand we got there.
Lycky me, nobody speaks english... still I'm alive and kicking.
If you really want to be sick, do it at home.
Hiring a 100cc motorbike on the disputed island of Phu Quoc, the red dust roads provide a challenge to the most experienced of motorcylists! Riding pillion, I decided to let my husband go first and experience the thrill (and intrepidation) of this road to the north of the island.
