The pristine beauty and peaceful atmosphere of Hon Nghe Islet in the coastal district of Kien Luong in the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang are what that first strike tourists upon arrival there for the first time.

Tourists can take a sleeper bus at the Mien Tay station in HCMC to travel to Ha Tien. Once arriving there, they can take a coach to Nga Ba Hon wharf and then catch a boat to reach the islet.

Visitors can find poetic landscapes and pleasant weather all year round in the oval-shaped islet with sparkling blue sea water and wild rocks that help refresh their minds and souls.

Especially, thousands of pilgrims often flock to the islet to visit some sites deemed sacred such as Lien Ton Co Tu Pagoda, Phat Co Don Cave, and Gia Long King Cave from the Lunar New Year holiday (Tet) until mid-March every year to pray for a prosperous life, good luck and good health in the new year.

Apart from exploring the untouched beauty of nature and mysterious stories of the sacred land, travelers will have a chance to go fishing in cool and fresh water to come closer to nature and get away from worries and stresses while savoring a selection of tasty seafood and learn more about daily coastal life of local fishermen.

Therefore, trying a visit to the islet to many visitors is worthwhile.
