Vung Chua – Yen island

Vung Chua – Dao Yen is located 7km far from the southeast of Ngang Pass (Deo Ngang) – the natural borderline between Quang Binh and Ha Tinh province. The location is the end of Hoanh Son range which runs to South China Sea (East Sea in Vietnam). From the National Avenue 1A, visitors follow a large venue to Hon La port, then voyage to Yen island by boat.

Vung Chua is surrounded by three islands. They are: Hon La, Hon Gia, and Hon Nom (Yen island). That is a reason why local fishermen usually come here to seek for a shelter when storms come.

According to the locals, the name of Vung Chua (Pagoda pool) originated from a pagoda located here for hundreds of year ago. In addition, the pagoda’s location is quiet and peaceful as a pool. However, there is only the foundation as its remains left.

Yen island was firstly called “Hon Nom” (South wind island) following the wind direction. Then, the name of Yen island (Salangane island) is widely known because many salangane come and build nests here.

After being selected as a final rest place for a military genius Vo Nguyen Giap, the region is becoming popular tourist area for Vietnamese people. The place is attractive not only as a visiting place for General Giap’s admirers but also for its primary beauty. Moreover, Vung Chua – Yen island is described as a position of “sitting tiger, rolling dragon” which is against the mountain and has a wide visibility to South China Sea.

Visiting Vung Chua – Yen island, visitors may find an unspoiled island with hundreds of beauties that are waiting for visitors to explore and have feelings themselves.
