While the Epizode Festival team did a great job creating the FAQ section on their website with very useful information, we wanted to dig a bit deeper and provide more tips on How to Plan your Trip to Epizode Festival in Vietnam.
If you haven’t already, make sure to check out our main article about everything Epizode Festival, featuring the full lineup and our Top 5 Acts Must-See Acts @ Epizode Festival.
This little guide will help you find how to get on the island (whether you are traveling by boat, bus or plane), where to stay on the island and also recommendations for quality hotels, hostels and homes. Let’s start from the beginning… how to get there!
Epizode Festival is located on Phu Quoc island (pronounced Fu Kwok), the island is located off the coast of Cambodia in the Gulf of Thailand. Luckily, unlike many islands in South-East Asia, it has an airport (PQC).
If you are flying from outside of Asia, we recommend that you fly to Ho Chi Minh or Hanoi first (whichever is cheapest), and then take a cheap flight directly to Phu Quoc.
It is very easy and cheap to fly from anywhere in Asia directly to the island.
Here is a list of airlines that can get you to Epizode Festival in Vietnam (we recommend Airasia): Airasia.com, Dragonair.com, Vietnamairlines.com, Jetstar.com and Vietjetair.com
By Bus + Boat
It is also possible to reach the island by boat, first you need to take a bus from Mien Tay Bus Station
in Ho Chi Minh
. That bus will take you to Rạch Giá
, where you can take the boat to the island. It is also possible to take a ferry from Hà Tiên
to reach the island. The trip from Rạch Giá costs 330.000vnd and the one from Hà Tiên costs 230.000vnd for the fast ferry and 185.000vnd for the regular one. You can find all the information and purchase your boat ticket HERE
You can enter Phu Quoc without a visa (unlike the rest of Vietnam) and stay for up to 30 days, you can find more information about this visa exemption HERE
Where to stay on the island
The island is somewhat big, since the festival is located on the west side of the island (near the airport), you might want to stay near. Here’s a few hotels, hostels and homes for rent, we already selected only the ones that have ratings of 8 or higher (because nobody wants to stay in a sh**ty hotel). Don’t wait last minute to book, you know how it will end up, most of them will be fully booked!
