Soi Sim Island Tours

Soi Sim Island
With its primeval forest and stretches of white sand, it’s easy to see why the small island of Soi Sim has become a firm favorite among cruise visitors. Soi Sim, which takes its name from the native sim trees that cover much of its landscape, is located near Titop Island at the heart of Halong Bay and most often visited on overnight cruises.

The Basics
In recent years, Soi Sim has become known as a center for ecotourism, with its endemic plants and two mountain peaks drawing numerous hikers. Wooden lodges provide unique waterfront accommodation, and unspoiled beaches offer ample opportunities for swimming, sunbathing, and water sports. Few day cruises stop at the island, so if you want to visit, you’ll likely have to do so as part of an overnight or 3-day cruise. Some cruises sail past the island, while others stop for time to swim and relax on the beach or climb to the top for panoramic views over Halong Bay. It’s a good idea to double-check the exact itinerary before booking if you want to ensure a visit to the island.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Soi Sim Island is a popular stop for outdoor enthusiasts.
  • Don’t forget to bring a towel, bathing suit, and a change of clothes.
  • Wear sturdy and comfortable shoes if you plan to hike on the island, and be sure to wear sun protection.

How to Get There
Soi Sim Island is located in Halong Bay, just northeast of Cat Ba Island. Get there by joining a 2- or 3-day cruise through the bay.

When to Get There

The best time to enjoy Soi Sim Island (as well as the other sights of Halong Bay) is during the shoulder season (March to May and September to November), when temperatures are cool and comfortable and fewer visitors are cruising.

Sim Fruit
The sim trees that give this island its name produce an edible and sweet fruit used to make pies, jams, and a Vietnamese wine called ruou sim. You’ll find it most frequently on the island of Phu Quoc.
