Port town with boats & flights to Phu Quoc

Worth It? Only to continue your route to Ha Tien or Phu Quoc
What to Do Arrive late, leave early
Gateway Speed boats to Phu Quoc, bus to Can Tho and Ha Tien

The only reason to come here is to catch a boat or plane to Phu Quoc island, or a bus to Ha Tien. Busy, a bit seedy, Rach Gia has the quality of a border town, and it kinda is. Lots of trade goes on here from its port – some of it’s even legal. For visitors, sticking in the compact and walkable center, it can feel like wandering into a stray, rather-modern district of Saigon: stuff to look at, honks to hear – but no where to go.
