Bo Hon Island

Essence Grand Cruise – Bo Hon Island has its own story, and each stone there has its own spirit. Bo Hon Island is like a fairy land that is isolated from the human world, where you can find your soul mixing with the majestic beauty of nature.

The island of Bo Hon lies in the middle of the Halong Bay area. It would take about an hour and a half to get to if you depart from Bai Chay beach.

Bo Hon is considered to be one of the most splendid and biggest islands in the bay but it’s actually a group of islets that are linked together. High cliffs and lush rain-forest give this island a regal quality.
