Relaxing massage on Phu Quoc Beach
Update: Mar 19, 2009
Phu Quoc Island is a peaceful tropical paradise in the warm turquoise waters of the Gulf of Thailand and close to mainland Ha Tien Town in the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang.

The destination is becoming well known for its stunning beaches, untouched natural environment, wonderful sunsets and fantastic scuba diving and snorkeling, attracting many tourists year round.

However, these days, visitors to Phu Quoc are also drawn to the massage services on the beach.

Beach massages on Phu Quoc Island have developed unprompted as an amateur career. About 100 women are offering massages both on the beaches and in resorts at about VND60,000 per hour, earning from VND200,000 to VND350,000 a day in high seasons.

While they may not be professionally trained, they have learned from experience and been taught by skilled practitioners and even by guests. They are also required to adhere to strict regulations regarding clothing and manners, and are not allowed into hotel or guest rooms.
