When traveling in Southeast Asia, it's always recommended to keep an eye on the weather.
The weather on Phu Quoc Island in Vietnam is determined by the two main seasons of Southeast Asia: Rainy season and dry season. While the temperature does not change much throughout the year, it rarely dips below 25°C. The hottest time of the year is between March and May, but the constant breeze from the sea makes it bearable, yes, even pleasant.

The dry season lasts from November to May and brings great weather for beach activities, while the wet season from June to October comes with occasional heavy downpours and - rarely - a whole rainy day. The nature is generally greener and lusher during rainy season of course, and the famous streams, Fairy Stream and Painting Stream, have plenty of water and are a joy to experience.

Don't be afraid of the rain. Most of the time you can find shelter from a pour and if your camera bag is waterproof, there is not much to loose. The warm temperature and sea breeze dries you off pretty fast afterwards.

Contrary to the rest of Vietnam, Phu Quoc Island is located in the Gulf of Thailand, and depending on the time of the year, the direction of the wind changes. If the wind blows landwards, it drives all the trash from the ocean ashore and in certain places swimming is completely impossible. On the lee side of the island however, the beaches are comparatively clean and the water is clear. More information about that, you can find at "The best time to travel to Phu Quoc Island".
