TOUR INTRODUCTION

Read more review of this experience on TripAdvisor.

* From April to October, it’s rainy season. As such, snorkeling & Diving spots (Half-moon Reef – U-Turn) are subject to the Southwest monsoon. We will take you to 4-season Reef and Shallow Reef instead.

Phu Quoc U-Turn is one of the best well-known names among professional divers coming to the island.

The route and schedule enable us to avoid the crowds. Taking speedboat for Half-moon Reef and Phu Quoc U-Turn are our first and second snorkeling spots respectively. These are the most beautiful Snorkeling & Diving spots in South Phu Quoc, besides that U-Turn, even more, is the most difficult diving site to reach in Phu Quoc due to the sensitive location usually affected by monsoons, very lucky to get here right in time of its best water. After an in-depth exploration of Phu Quoc U-Turn, you will be served a drink while relaxing on a beautiful island in a completely tranquil atmosphere before feasting on sunset BBQ.

Da càng sậm màu nghĩa là dưới da càng có nhiều hắc sắc tố (melanin) bảo vệ da khỏi các tác nhân gây hại của ánh nắng mặt trời. Da trắng lên đồng nghĩa với việc melanin không còn, “sức đề kháng” của làn da sẽ yếu đi nhiều so với hồi da còn ngăm ngăm bánh mật. Tức là, dưỡng trắng luôn đi đôi với việc bạn phải tăng cường che chắn bảo vệ làn da của mình kỹ càng hơn (Mỹ phẩm collagen, áo chống nắng, ô dù nón mũ, khẩu trang…) Sự suy giảm về chất lượng và số lượng collagen sẽ dẫn đến hậu quả “lão hoá” của cơ thể mà sự thay đổi trên làn da, trên khuôn mặt là dấu hiệu dễ nhận biết nhất: làn da bị khô, nhăn nheo bắt đầu từ các đường nhăn mảnh trên khoé mắt, khoé miệng, lâu dần thành nếp nhăn sâu, các đường nét khuôn mặt bị chùng nhão và chảy xệ. Chính vì vậy mà Collagen đóng vai trò là một trong những chất quan trọng hàng đầu của ngành thẩm mỹ, đặc biệt là chăm sóc da, phẫu thuật thẩm mỹ, phẫu thuật bỏng…
