This prison is a sad reminder of the terrible history Vietnam has when they fought the American's and their Allies. Quite crude with their displays in the prison baracks, the photos and displays in the main room are very confronting. I felt quite uncomfortable and...More

Mans inhumanity to man never fails to amaze. This site is free and the exhibits, using life size mannequins to select prisoners in various forms of torture and detention really illustrates how awful this concentration camp, set on a paradise island must have been. Definitely...More

They say that history is written by the victors, and this prison has a sense of that, though it clearly shows that atrocities can be committed by all in war. Sad, but important to remember, when you are immersed in the beauty of Vietnam, it’s...More

I was kind of disappointed of that prison. If you have nothing to do one day and haven't seen the war museum in Ho Chi Minh or Cu Chi tunnels, it could be interesting.

Suprisingly you can just turn up and walk around, no tickets, tours required. It is of course a prisoner of war camp therefore be prepared and it is referenced at the war museum in ho chi minh city. Most of the huts are empty but...More

Well done and worth the time. If you're an American, be prepared for Hanoi telling their story from that POV specific to this camp. Many ex pow were there. Later we ran into several at a rest and they shared stories with us and a...More

A lot to learn... I had no idea as to how cruel the Americans and south vietnamese were towards the north vietnamese. Definitely worth a visit. Facilities can be improved, probably something that will be addressed as more people will start coming to this island

Very impressive, a real contrast between the beauty phu cuoq has to offer. Interesting to see the horrors that happened on phu cuoq. Takes about 30 minutes to walk through!

You can rent a scooter for about 100,000 dong a day. PQ traffic is not that bad. We had a car we brought over on the ferry.

I think it’s open every day without exception. No fees. You can wander around by yourself when and where you want.

It might be better to use a wheelchair because the prison is quite big and there are stairs that lead into each cabin.
