Dog islet in Halong Bay overview

Dog islet in Halong Bay, where you can imagine a dog with its back to the sea. It appears to have been sitting there for millions of years, keeping an eye out for lucky voyages.

Dog islet’s features

Dog Islet is 8 meters tall and appears to be difficult to see when the boat is cruising from the harbor to the bay area. However, as the boat passes by, the picturesque beauty of Ha Long Bay becomes more apparent.

The special shape of this rocky islet demonstrates its geological uniqueness. The emerald water, strange islet, and, above all, the harmony of the surrounding landscapes… All of them combine to form a poetic picture of nature that can only be seen in Ha Long Bay.

Every day, the islet acts as a guardian, protecting both fishermen’s and visitors’ journeys. It is not an exaggeration to say that this is a beautiful bay landscape.

The islet’s name derives from its distinct shape. The elderly who live nearby regard it as a holy site where they can worship the Sky and Earth amidst the vast sea. In Eastern cultures, the image of a stone dog represents spiritual and psychic values.

This islet is similar to stone dogs who serve as gatekeepers in temples or pagodas. They greet visitors and inform them of good news, as well as prevent anything wicked or evil from entering the house. Dog Islet, like many other islets in Ha Long Bay (Dinh Huong Islet, Trong Mai Islet, etc.), is associated with a local legend, story, or religious belief. Dog Islet Dog Islet Dog Islet
