    Fighting Cock Rocks, or usually called by its more charming Vietnamese name, Trong Mai Islet (rooster and hen islet). Some even call it Kissing Birds. No matter what name you call them, they always attract attention whenever a tourist boat passes by. It is usually one of the first islets that you will see during your trip.

    Shaped like a pair of chicken, these rocks are one of the most well-known islets in Halong Bay. At 10 meters from the sea level, it appears in countless works of art, especially in literature and painting. The rocks can fall down at any given moment, but they refuse to.

    Standing on the deck while looking at this marvelous creation of nature is mesmerizing and relaxing for many people. Be sure to take lots of photos to remember it by.

    Your next stop should be Dinh Huong Islet. It’s is in the southwest of Dau Go Island. The islet is only one large rock in the middle of the sea. When the tide is low, you can see four pins underneath the rock, forming a shape that resembles a huge incense burner., hence the name Dinh Huong (incense burner). Nobody knows exactly when the islet was formed, however, it remains  a sacred symbol in Halong Bay

    Along with Trong Mai Islet, Dinh Huong Rocks is also an iconic image of Halong Bay. It holds great symbolic and spiritual values, with the possibility that its name was dedicated to the heroes who lost their lives to protect Vietnam. The fact that it’s printed on the 200.000 VND note makes it even more of a symbol.

    Dinh Huong Islet is also a clear example of Halong Bay’s geological and geomorphological value. Besides being a charming site, it also acts as an object to help navigate boats and cruises.

    Visit Halong bay in one day without seeing these rocks is a failure to me. There are also lots of islets to see and to explore, but seeing 2 of the most iconic rocks for a one day trip is not bad at all. After you’ve seen a few rocks and islets, it’s time to start exploring the many caves of Halong Bay. Your one day tour of Halong Bay is just starting.

    We’re starting our cave tour by visiting Thien Cung Cave. Located just a bit north of Dau Go island. Thien Cung cave (Heaven Palace cave) is the most beautiful and primitive of all the caves in Halong Bay. With the total area of 10,000 square meters along with its complex interior structure, the cave fascinates all of its visitors. But what makes it famous is its unique system of stalactites and stalagmites, which come in different shapes and sizes. This place must be visited if you visiting Halong Bay in one day.

    Because the entrance was well-hidden, it was not until 1993 when fishermen tried to find shelter during a big storm that they stumbled upon the cave. Exploring Thien Cung cave is no easy task, make sure that you’re able to walk long distances and climb lots of stairs.

    When observing the cave, remember to make full use your imagination to create images from giant  rock pillars naturally sculpted with stalactites.
