This is evidenced by the fragments of the most ancient structures of the Halong culture found by archaeologists, from three to five thousand years old. In the Middle Ages, the island was used as a sentry - to protect the bay from uninvited guests from the sea. He later served as a military and customs post. In the post-war period, Ho Chi Minh liked to rest on the island, his residence remained here.
The impetus for the development of the island's infrastructure and turning it into a tourist attraction was the construction of a bridge from the mainland in the early 2000s.
