Duong Dong harbor is located at No3 Bach Dang street, Duong Dong town, Phu Quoc island district. This is a small harbor with fewer fishing boats. In the future, this harbor will be upgraded to be the modern harbor to welcome the international tourist ships on Phu Quoc Sunrise Fishing Tour.
The upcoming Phu Quoc international passenger port will be built in Duong Dong town by Phu Quoc Tourism Investment and Development Joint Stock Company (a member of Vingroup) with a total capital of VND 1,254 billion.
The scale of building passenger ports
According to the plan, Duong Dong harbor will become a Phu Quoc international passenger port that can receive ships carrying 5,000-6,000 passengers (equivalent to 225,000 GT tonnage), and combine the exploitation of clean cargo containers. The wharf is 400 meters long, in which the main bridge is 240 meters long and 19 meters wide, allowing ships to dock on both sides. A bridge of 1,020 meters is built from the shore to the ship to bring passengers into the island.

According to Portcoast, the demand for international sea passengers coming to Phu Quoc after the international wharf is completed can reach 105,000 - 190,000 passengers/year in the period up to 2020; 350,000 - 550,000 passengers/year for the period to 2030.
The study of detailed planning of an international port receives international passenger ships in Phu Quoc to attract direct passengers here, so it is necessary to connect the port to the shore.
Progress of project construction investment
With hydrological, wave and wind conditions in Phu Quoc, Portcoast forecasts that if only the wharf is built, the cruise ship will only complete about 58% of the year.
The consultant unit proposed a plan to build an L-shaped breakwater of 800 meters long and a dike crest of 6.6 meters in front, ensuring that international ships docked all year round without being afraid of big waves. In addition, the project also built a 2-storey passenger terminal with a total area of nearly 5,000 m2.
Phu Quoc International Passenger Port in the future
The total investment capital for the project is over VND 1,254 billion. The consulting firm also proposed the investment segment in 2 phases.
- Phase 1: Invest in breakwaters to promote investment efficiency. Total investment in phase 1 is about VND 1,089 billion, particularly the cost of building breakwaters is over VND 537 billion.
- Phase 2: Only need to invest in additional items for the project.
After completing, designing Phu Quoc International Passenger Port with a length of 400 meters, in which the main bridge is 240 meters long and 19 meters wide. This allows ships to dock on both sides and in the middle is a 1,020-meter long bridge built from the shore to the pier to bring passengers on Speedboat tours to 4 islands in the South into the Pearl island.
