Bo Hon Island - Drum & Virgin Cave

The Drum and Virgin Cave is located on the island of Bo Hon island with the Sung Sot cave system, Dong Tien lake, Tunnels cave… It’s about 15 km south of Bai Chay. For the fishermen, they see the Virgin as their dear home. Especially for the couple who love each other as a symbol, the vow of love.

Entering the cave, in the middle of the cave is a statue of a stone girl, lying with long hair, eyes looking out to sea, waiting for despair.

It is worth a visit Drum and Virgin Cave

Opposite to the cave is the Drum cave. The statue of the petrified man facing the Virgin remains. Where we can hear the screams of despair and the sound of his knocking on the cliffs. The remnants of that night’s hurricane are still there today – broken pieces of rock in the cave. The wind roared through the cliffs and the bubbles still whitewashed.

The Drum and the Virgin cave is not only rich in stalactites and beautiful scenery. Also attractive to visitors because of a very moving history. See also Halong Bay private cruise.

The Legend of Drum and Virgin Cave

There was a beautiful young girl, poor family. Her family had to work for the owner of the fishing area. Seeing her beautiful, he forced her family to give her a wife for him. But she refused because she had a lover, he was fishing to prepare for their wedding day. With nothing to do with her, the landlord sent her to a deserted island to subdue her, she was hungry and exhausted on a rainy night, the girl was petrified.

It was also the night the boy knew she was in trouble. After that he traveled around the sea to find his lover. At night, thunder stormed the boat he broke, he washed up a desert island, in the lightning, he looked away and recognized the girl but the words he said were carried by the wind. He hit a rock against the cliffs and told her that he had come. He knocked when the blood flowed, until exhausted and he petrified the cave.
