Nha Trang - Sightseeing

Located 2 miles north of Nhatrang city is a place call Hon Chong. In Vietnamese it means Stone Island or something similar because Hon Chong is a small island made out of stones stacking on each other.
Road leads to Hon Chong. Pacific ocean is on the left!


On the way to the top of the island, I find this art museum. It wasn't here the last time I came to Nha Trang.

Hon Chong from the top of the hill.

Superman returns!!!

This is Nha Trang looked from Hon Chong.

Great place to go fishing.

I am sitting in a imprinted palm . Legend says that a giant fell and he leaned on the rock with his palm. The incident creates such imprint !
Student flower. It is the symbol of Vietnamese student. And it only blossoms during the summer.

There is a antique temple on that distant island which I would visit sometime next week.


Here is another legend: the couple were waiting for their sons coming back from the war. They waited for so long that their bodies eventually turn to stones. The couple were standing back to back. The wife is facing the sea. This is also called "Husband and wife Island"
