Tuan Chau Island, Halong Bay

Tuan Chau Island is on Halong Bay of Vietnam, 8km from Halong City. From the late 1990s, Tuan Chau Island has been built into an entertainment area of Halong City. There are luxurious resorts, theme parks, entertainment corners and casinos on the island. There is a quarter to the south-west of the island that's home to a small community of local residents, while the rest of the island is reserved for commercial purposes.

There are a few small patches of sand on Tuan Chau Island. One of the luxury resorts on the island has put more sand to expand the main beach into a nice-enough area to attract the sun worshipers. Alternatively, there are also a number of villas on the hill sides of the island which offer nice view of Halong Bay. Tuan Chau Island is not yet a popular beach destination for foreign travellers to Vietnam, though it's quite busy with Vietnamese tourists during the summer months.
