Homestay in Phu Quoc Island

With an emphasis on switching off (no TV, wi-fi or air-conditioning in rooms) and socialising – fun communal dinners are a mainstay – Freedomland has 11 basic but elegant bungalows (mosquito nets, fans, solar-heated showers) scattered around a shady plot. The beach is a five-minute walk away, or you can slump in the hammocks strung between the trees. Popular with solo travellers; call ahead.
