Phú Quoc (Vietnam)

"Three things are left of Heaven: stars, flowers and children" [Dante Alighieri].
Well, according to Dante's words, the remains of Heaven on Earth could be the Phú Quoc island.
Phú Quoc, is the largest island in Vietnam.
Located in the Gulf of Thailand, just 12 km south of the Cambodian coast, the island has long been a bone of contention between the governments of Cambodia and Vietnam, both of which have an historical claim to it and the surrounding waters. A July 1982 agreement between Vietnam and People's Republic of Kampuchea ostensibly settled the dispute, but since Vietnam's withdrawal from Cambodia, the agreement has not been recognized and the island is still the object of irredentist sentiments. The opposition Cambodian National Rescue Party still claims the island as Cambodian territory.
