Salangane’s call Hon Noi Island home

Nestled around 26 kilometers from the center of Nha Trang City, Hon Noi Island is home to many Salangane (Swiftlet) birds that nest in its stone cliffs. And the breathtaking East Sea location is only a 90 minute cruise from Cau Da Wharf.

Here are some photos of the wonderful island by The Saigon Times Daily’s contributor Huynh Nam.
