Fighting Cock Islet or Trong Mai Islet is situated on the southwest of Halong Bay, about 5km from Bai Chay Tourism Wharf. The islet includes two limestone islets which look like a pair of cock and hen standing in the midst of the bay. Each of these islets has the height of around 10 meters. With different imagination, some says that these cocks are fighting while the others think they are kissing.

Rising from the emerald water, Fighting Cocks Islet has stood there thousands years ago. The islet is most beautiful at dawn when the sun sheds the first shines of a day and light up the cock couple. It is made a symbol of not only Halong Bay but also Vietnam tourism. Hence, it has become the creative inspiration for photographers, painters, and artists.
