Trong Mai Islet (Fighting Cock Rocks) is situated on the southwest side of HaLong Bay, 5 km from the tourist wharf near Dinh Huong Islet. In a somewhat large expanse of open sea, the island seems to grow up from the bottom of the deep emerald waters.

The islet is about 10 meters high above the sea level. It has the shape of a cock couple rising from the blue sea. These two huge cocks have stood by the other for thousands of years. As the story told by the locals, Trong Mai Islet represents for faithfulness of love.
The islet is most beautiful at dawn, when the sun sheds the first shine of a day and light up the cock couple.
