Ga Choi Island
If the otherworldly Halong Bay is the Louvre, Ga Choi, more commonly known as “Fighting Cock Island,” is its Mona Lisa. Halong Bay constitutes an essential destination in any trip to Vietnam, home to UNESCO-listed fame and jaw-dropping natural beauty. There are countless rock islets dotting its misty waters. Yet, Ga Choi is the one that visitors can’t wait to photograph. With its amusing resemblance to two roosters fighting head to head, this limestone formation has become the unofficial symbol of the region. As you glide on a traditional Junk boat, seek out Ga Choi. Capture this natural landmark before it gets surrounded by other vessels.
Serving as a buoyant gathering spot for Halong Bay sailboats, Ga Choi is often hard to catch alone. Nevertheless, there is a stylish appeal to it at any time of day. You won’t regret taking a photo to make a cheerful postcard for your friends back home.
