Cao Dai Temple, Duong Dong

Located in the vicinity of the very city center, Cao Dai Temple is a favorite stop for visitors all over the world, who come to see the place where the worshipers of the new religion come to pray. Established in 1919, and officially recognized as a religion in 1997, Cao Dai started here, on the island, as a combination of principles from all the major religions of the world. The diversity and the elements of all those religions can be easily seen in the architecture and decorations of the temple--through the Confucian design, Buddhist paintings and statues of elements, to the colorful, decorated walls and pillars. A visit to Cao Dai Temple represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Phu Quoc Island trip tool to plot your vacation.

Where to stay in Phu Quoc Island

The southwestern coast of Phu Quoc Island offers the greatest range of accommodations. Resorts of all sizes nestle up close to the golden sands there, with many of the more luxurious options boasting their own private beaches and beach bars. Farther out of town, you'll find a number of lodges and hotels, positioned in scenic coastal spots or along the main roads of the island's interior, with the latter providing particularly convenient access to the national park areas.
