Located in the southwest of Halong Bay about 10 km from Tuan Chau pier, Soi Sim island is an appealing tourist attraction because of its inherent wild beauty. The island is also near other highlight attractions such as Titov Island, Luon Cave and Sung Sot Cave. The island’s name is derived from the rose myrtle (called “sim” in Vietnamese) which is ubiquitous across the island.
Soi Sim Island has an area of 8.7 hectares, devided into two peaks, the highest one is about 200 meters. The whole island is covered by a green primeval forest, home to many species of flora, especially endemic and valuable tree species, typical of Halong Bay ecosystem. Recently a flora and fauna conservation area was built on Soi Sim Island. The highlight of this project is the central display house and the viewing platforms simulating a 9-petal flower. In the near future, this conservation area promises to create a new and appealing tourism product to attract visitors, contributing to the sustainable tourism development of the heritage.
Coming to Soi Sim Island, tourists can also participate in water sports such as kayaking and swimming on the clear seawater, playing on the pristine white sand beach or spend time relaxing on deck chair and enjoy cool drinks.
