Trong Mai Islet is the symbol in not only Halong Bay logo but also Vietnam travel guidebooks. Thanks to the unique values of aesthetics and its significance, Trong Mai Islet is worth an appealing attraction not to be missed of Halong Bay travel.
Halong Bay has long been famous for numerous caves, grottoes, and breathtaking natural landscapes. One of the most stunning natural caves and islets of Halong that tourists to Halong must once visit is Trong Mai Islet. Far about 5 km from the pier, Trong Mai Islet, also known as Fighting Cock Islet is located in the southwest of Halong Bay. Going through Dinh Huong Grotto about 1 km, tourists will admire two relatively large rocks as 2 chickens unfurling wings fighting each other above the immense waters. Amid vast seawater, the beautiful Trong Mai Islet rises from the deep blue water. Dawn is probably the most beautiful moment when the glow covers huge cocks together amid the vast sea.
Going to Halong Bay, tourists seem to soak up a mystical world with natural wonders and exciting ecosystem. Halong Bay is a unique cultural heritage because it is home to the important traces for the formation and development of history. It is also the convergence of multi-shaped rock islands and magnificent caves forming a vivid and mysterious world. Halong Bay features two major types, namely limestone islands and schist islands, which mainly concentrates in the eastern and western regions of the bay. There are numerous spectacular shape islands with more than 200 meters high, which is created from 250 million years ago.
Thanks to the rise and fall of the continental shelf, islands and islets through the process of bobbing up and down create interesting shape. The image of stacked rocks can be easily found in the bay, for instance, Toad Islet with its height of more than 9 meters looks like a toad squatting on transparent blue sea. Some is the convergence of majestic solid walls with wild moss and the reflection from the water creating the majestic scenery can be found nowhere. Trong Mai Islet, a complex of rocks with its interesting shape as pair of cock and hen protruding above the waters is a symbol of Halong Bay and tourism in Halong Bay Vietnam. It is a meaningful natural beauty symbolizing the folk culture of Vietnam.
