Hon Nghe Islet in Kien Luong District of the southern province of Kien Giang, is a small oval islet stretching on only 3.8 square kilometers. The mountainous terrain of Hon Nghe gives rise to its majestic scenery. Aside from unspoiled landscapes, and peaceful and tranquil beaches, Hon Nghe can take pride in its unique natural cave systems and religious complexes. Of these, the best venue to admire the panoramic view of the islet is arguably Lau Chuong Mountain.
