Hon Chong Promontory

Hon Chong is located 3.5km north from the centre of Nha Trang City, consists of two enormous groups of massive rocks lying by the sea at the foot of La San Hill with disorder lying rocks resulted from tide’s erosion. The grand group of rocks off-shore is called Hon Chong, the Chong Rock consisting a square-shaped block lying on a flatter and bigger one.

The neat imprints of a giant’s five-fingered hand engraved on the stone side facing the sea can be seen here. According to a legend, once upon the time, when a giant man was sitting fishing there, a giant fish swallowed the bait and pulled him away. He tried to pull himself back with a fishing-rod in hand, pressing the other hand against the massive rock leaving the easily-seen imprints. On the rocky ground, several rocks stand strangely on one another such as two rocks standing upright with another big rock lying between like a big stone gate to another group of rocks. The second group of rocks bears the shape of a woman sitting facing the sea. It’s called Hon Vo, the Wife, that has a close meaning with Hon Chong, the Husband. Now Hon Chong is a well-known scenic spot in Nha Trang City.
