Thien Nga islet
Thien Nga Islet (Swan Islet) is a stone island situated on Bai Tu Long Bay, right next to Cong Tay Island. Thien Nga Islet is about 15 meters high above the sea level.
The islet comprises three stones piling on each others. The largest block forms a swan body and the two left shapes a head and neck of the swan.
