Bo Hon Island

Bo Hon Island is a beautiful island in Halong Bay, and one of the largest in the area. It is about 1.5 hours from Bai Chay although you took much longer to reach it, as you were cruising slowly and enjoying the view along the way. This limestone island consists of towering limestone hillocks. And Bo Hon Island has an added attraction, Sung Sot Cave, the largest cave system in Halong Bay. The view from the mouth of Sung Sot Cave down to Bo Hon Bay is simply one of the most picturesque in Halong Bay.
