Also known as the coconut tree prison, Di Tích Nhà Tù Phú Quốc represents an embodiment of war crimes turned into a national heritage site. Originating in the Indochina War, the prison was divided into four areas that held over 14,000 prisoners--those who resisted French colonial rule between 1946 and 1954. It served the same purpose during the Vietnam War, except that the U.S. troops rebuilt the areas and separated them strictly for men, women, and elders with tight supervision. Exhibits display gruesome torture tools for crucifixion, boiling, and hammering teeth, as well as the infamous Catso tiger cage: a pitch-black cell, extremely hot during the day and cold during the night, which left prisoners blind and mentally unstable upon release. You can visit the prison with a tour guide service, or explore it freely on your own.

Nơi đây làm mình xúc động thật sự. Và mình có suy nghĩ là ngày xưa đau đớn, cực nhọc, đủ thứ đọa đày như vậy mà người ta vẫn sống mạnh mẽ, tìm cách vượt qua tù ngục vậy thì những nỗi đau ngày hôm nay ... more »This place makes me really touched. And I think that the old day of pain, the hard, enough to devalue such things that people still live strong, seek to overcome prison, the pain of our today is not worth it now. , it should be reduced to problems. Minh's company buys the retail tour of PA Asia, go South Island during the day, including prison tour and many other points, the price is also reasonable for the individual as he or she is.
The memorial place of Vietnam war! We can feel the big hurt for human when visit this place. It is also should visiting place whatever you when to Phu Quoc island! It is free ticket to entry!
This tour was included in our day trip your therefore we didn't book it independently and fortunately we didn't. It's quite informative and well done but the guide were somehow gone and we didn't have anyone explaining anything. In addition the toilets we're really dirty (quite horrible to have to go there actually). Therefore 3 stars.
