About a 20 minute Pleasant ride from Long Beach area via motorbike or taxi. A short video presentation in a small museum prepares for your walk among the many prison barracks. This is a self touring prison that is very informative. Be sure to take sun protection because there are no shaded areas during your walk around. No admission fee.

Another reminder of a dark time in history. Worth a quick visit and walk around to ensure that we never forget the horrors and trauma of war. If you are going to Sao Beach, take the time for a quick detour and have a walk around. Leave a donation to help with future upkeep (no admission price).

Good to see the other side of the Vietnam conflict. Pretty old and not American standards for a tour. Worth seeing and getting a different perspective.

This a free museum so of course it's not got bells and whistles but it does explain and demonstrate the horrors of the prison and the experience of the POW's. We spent about an hour or so here and found it really interesting to walk around the site and see /read about the horrific tortures and deaths that happened here.... More

Great place the learn about what happened in the phu quoc prison. Although it's a self led tour, there are plenty of signs with descriptions of what happened during those times. The sculptures of the Americans and Vietnamese depicts scenes of torture from within the prison. There's also a secret tunnel that leads from one bunker to the outside world.... More

This is a place where the horror of war is on display. Unthinkable things were done to the NV army soldiers here. A must see and a thing to remember in order to preserve peace

First of all, while this isn't a super terrifying place I would not bring children. The prison plays out ways of torture with live size dolls and all of it can be very hard to understand. Someone here (TA) was upset about the propaganda boards but I think one must put it all in a historical context. The site is... More
