Trong Mai Islet

Trong Mai Islet is located in the southwest of Halong Bay, about 5 km from Bai Chay Beach. Cruising on a boat from Bai Chay Warf to the southwest, passing through Rocky Dog Islet and Incense Burner Islet, visitors will have the opportunity to see Trong Mai Islet with the shape of two giant chickens (one cock – a hen) with a height of about 10 m that makes us imagine they are stretching their “wings” fighting each other right on the sea.

Mentioning to Trong Mai Islet, everyone will immediately think of the magnificent pair of stones, standing in the middle of the sea, one of nature’s preference for Halong Bay. If travelling Halong Bay without embarking in this place, it is said that you don’t know Halong.

Trong Mai is symbol of Ha Long Bay

From a distance, the islet with the protruding posture and the tiny “leg” propping the giant “body” looks like it can slam down anytime there is a wave hitting. But, magically, these two stones still stand proudly amidst the immense sky and the sea for millions of years and it seems that thanks to these tiny legs, two giant chickens become more attractive.

Between a vast sea, Trong Mai Islet appears so beautifully and impressively from the emerald water. Especially, at the dawn, from a distance, the new sun sheds the very first radiance into them, lighting up and dying red the pair of giant chickens. This is also the best time to admire the islet.
