Titov Island


Located about 8 km South-East of Bai Chay lies the small Titov Island. It displays a beach shaped like a crescent moon, and sand that has been washed to a snowy white by the tide. On 22nd November 1962, this tiny island had the honor of receiving a visit from astronaut Ghermann Titov, a hero of the former Soviet Union, accompanied by Ho Chi Minh. To perpetuate the remembrance of their visit, Ho named the place “Đảo Ti Tốp”.
