      Making the Journal de Bord

      Phú Quốc is Vietnam's largest island and has a strategic role in the Gulf of Thailand. From the earliest centuries AD, Phú Quốc was an important landmark for sailors and traders navigating between Southeast Asia and the rest of the world. The island served as a base for local fishermen and a haven for trading ships, thanks to its many sheltered bays and fish-filled waters.

      Today, the island has become a popular destination for scuba diving, sport fishing and cruises, attracting visitors from all over the world. Marine conservation initiatives and sustainable development projects aim to protect its rich marine ecosystems, ensuring that Phú Quốc continues to thrive while preserving its maritime heritage.

      Energy Observer is now heading for our next port of call, Ho Chi Minh.
