You will start your journey with some mouthwatering visit around Phu Quoc. Get a taste of the local fish sauce, Sim wine and pepper, all of which are famous for being the local’s best delicacy. First, you will head over to a Fish Sauce Factory and behold the production process that goes into creating the perfect sauce blend. Interestingly, you will also see that the sauce is stored inside a brewery before being sold out in store to ensure the quality and preservation of the produced sauce. As one of Phu Quoc’s most treasured and sought-after delicacies, Phu Quoc nuoc mam (fish sauce) is a staple for your everyday meal. When you are satisfied with the tour, you will continue your way to the winery of Sim fruit. This berry is often mistaken with blueberry but upon closer inspection, you will see that the interior of the berry is actually red instead of blue. The alcohol produced from this berry also gives a uniquely fruity smell and taste to it, a good combination with dessert and for some casual cocktail night with friends.
