The formation of Hon Chong

There are many legends surrounding the unique rock formations of Hon Chong Nha Trang. However, the most popular legend is the love story of a fisherman and his wife. One day, while fishing, a storm caused their boat to capsize and the wife was swept away. The husband clung onto a rock, trying to save his wife, but the strength of nature overpowered them and they turned into two rocks lying side by side. The hollows on Hon Chong are said to be the imprints of the husband’s hands as he clung onto the rock to save his wife. This faithful love story explains the phenomenon of Hon Chong and Hon Vo lying not too far from each other.

Aside from this legend, Hon Chong Nha Trang has many other myths such as the mysterious handprint on the rock belonging to a giant who accidentally slipped while watching the fairy bathing. Another legend tells of the giant’s handprint, which held onto the rock as he struggled with a large fish that eventually pulled him away.

Although no one knows the true legend behind the unique beauty of Hon Chong, it remains a popular tourist attraction in Nha Trang.
