Incense Burner Islet


Incense Burner Islet (Dinh Huong Islet), another name – Lu Huong Islet is located in the southwest of Dau Go Island, far away about 6 kilometers from Bai Chay wharf, Halong. One the way to Heaven Cave and To Top beach, tourists can gaze out at Incense Burner Islet.

Although there are too many stunning islets in Halong Bay, Incense Burner Islet is not still overshadowed due to its picturesque beauty. The reason it has that unique name is because of the shape of an incense burner. The whole islet is a giant stone standing stately between the vast sea. When the tide is in low level, tourists will see its “legs” underneath.

Not simply only a spectacular natural landscape, Incense Burner Islet also brings a sacred meaning. This is the similar location for fishermen to worship the Sky and the Sea, hoping a year of good weather so that people can live happily. On the other hand, Incense Burner Islet reminds Vietnamese people to preserve their national traditions in heart as well as to be grateful on national heroes who dedicated the life to build and protect the country.
