The newly opened cable car route connects Phu Quoc island with Hon Thom which is a genuinely breathtaking experience. Riding on the cable car, you soar over a turquoise sea and islands with a fantastic view. With the length of 8 km, the Phu Quoc cable car route is the longest non-stop three-way cable car in the world recorded by the Guinness Book of World Records.
The view from Phu Quoc cable car
When visiting Hon Thom Island by cable car, tourists will have fabulous and unforgettable time because you will have a chance to admire the whole beauty of Phu Quoc Island from the sky. The journey to the top with the Hon Thom cable car gives visitors an exciting experience, when 360 degrees of sea and sky is collected and watching the painting in South Phu Quoc is portrayed with natural colors in the best and the liveliest.
The cable car will take you from the main island of Phu Quoc to Hon Thom Nature Park on Thom island. There is a small lovely beach featuring a fun jumping castle style playground in the water, deck chairs, and swings from the palm trees.

Water is so turquoise and clear with the small gentle waves. The cable car ticket includes free return transfers to this beach, so open-air shuttle minibusses are waiting for you leaving pretty much constantly throughout the day in both directions, and it’s only a few minutes’ driving from the cable car station on Hon Thom Island to the beach.
Experiencing the cable car is amazing that you get a 360-degree aerial view of the An Thoi Archipelago, flying over green islands, turquoise coral reefs, and charming fishing boats. You can look down at the harbor and watch fishers sailing their boats out to sea.
The cable car ride from Phu Quoc to Hon Thom Island takes about 15 minutes each way, so you have time to enjoy the amazing views from above. Compared to the average speed of other cable car routes, it is quite fast with speed up to around 30 km an hour apparently, so you genuinely feel like you’re flying above the water.

How to take photos from the cable car?
There are windows in the cabin, so you can get a partial look at the view and take photos at some angles unrestricted by the glass. You should bring a polarising lens for your camera or a clip-on polariser for your phone. A polarizer is just a glass lens you screw onto your camera or clip over your phone’s camera that cuts out reflections on glass or water. Using a polarizer will allow you to get photos of the views through the cable car’s glass walls with less distracting background reflection.
