LEGEND OF THE OCEAN
I can call this old man the Legend of the Ocean.The oldest person on this island, who has experienced many ups and downs and witnessed many historical events of Ly Son Island, where dubbed “Fairy Island” in the middle of the sea.
Through many stories that he told about his youth, about diving and hunting seafood, about wildlife on the island in the past, about historical stories, I love this beautiful island even more. .Travelers coming to Vietnam usually have three options: they will visit some iconic landscapes in Ho Chi Minh City and others, they will explore the mysterious beauty that is hidden in the ethnic areas of Vietnam or they will seek themselves into discovering the isolated islands where truly heaven still exists. If you belong to the third choice, you won’t ignore Ly Son Island, the one to be called the Fairy Island in the heart of the sea.
The geography and terrain of Ly Son were shaped after volcanic eruptions about 10,000 years ago. The geological tectonics created original landscapes on Ly Son which are rare anywhere else in the world.Visitors will also get overwhelmed once seeing the lava rocks, clear blue sea and endless garlic fields on the island.
As the nickname “Kingdom of garlic” suggests, the island district of Ly Son is well-known for its garlic which has distinctively delicious tastes.
