Halong Bay Islands

1. Tuan Chau Island

Situated 2 kilometres from Halong Bay Centre, Tuan Chau is on top of tourist attractions with a wide range of hotels, theme parks, restaurants, and entertainment venues. Besides, the highlight of the island is Tuan Chau International Port located in the south-west. With total dock length of 7 kilometers, this port is a safe and modern marina, with capacity to harbour more than 1,000 ships at a time. Many overnight cruises and day cruises embark from this port to other areas of Halong Bay such as Paradise Cruises, President Cruises, Stellar Cruise, Aphrodite Cruise, etc.

2. Titov Island

Located in the heart of Halong Bay, Titov Island (also known as Titop Island) is the most touristic place for both international and domestic visitors. The island was named after Russian cosmonaut Gherman Titov, who visited this island with President Ho Chi Minh in 1962.

Blessed with a delightfully crescent-shaped long white sand beach, Titov Island is an ideal place for the swimming activities, relaxing and other sport activities. From the top of the mountain on Titov Island, tourists can take a panoramic view of magnificent Halong Bay.

3. Bo Hon Island

As one of many tourist attractions in Halong mentioned in the past few years, Bo Hon Island always brings to visitors unforgettable moments right when they set foot on the island. Located at the heart of Halong Bay, the island is featured with high lime-stone mountains and vertical cliffs. Surrounded by many small islands, Bo Hon Island is famous for its grottoes including Sung Sot Cave (Surprise Cave), Luon Cave, Trinh Nu Cave and Trong Cave (Drum Cave). Nowadays, the island has become a preferred stop of tourists when traveling in Halong bay.

4. Soi Sim Island

Being a small island nestled on the west side of Halong Bay, Soi Sim Island is a tourist attraction because of its inherent wild beauty. The island’s name is derived from the rose myrtle (“sim” in Vietnamese) which is ubiquitous across the island.

Soi Sim Island

Soi Sim is a primitive forest with many kinds of endemic and valuable tree species, typical of Halong Bay ecosystem. Therefore, 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.

5. Cat Ba Island

Known as the “Pearl Island” in the Gulf of Tonkin, Cat Ba is the biggest and the most touristic island by its natural beauty and biodiversity. Half area of the island is Cat Ba National Park, the first national park of Vietnam that comprises both ecosystem on land and aquatic ecosystem. Cat Ba National Park is an ideal place for travellers who love hiking and trekking.

Cat Ba Island
