Hon Yen

Located 17km from Nha Trang, the two islands (Hon Noi and Hon Ngoai) are famous for harbouring birds' nests (Yen Sao), a local delicacy. They are found in caves and made from the saliva of Salanganes. They are then harvested by locals who climb up precarious bamboo ladders to fetch them. Nests come in two colours: white and red. Tours to this island are available from April to December.

How to get to Hon Yen - This island is 17km’s outside Nha Trang. You can take a ferry which costs VND150,000 and takes about two to three hours to get there or just take a tour with a local tour operator.
