Hon Tre island is the center commune of Kien Hai district, Kien Giang province. It is a small island whose shape looks like a giant turtle emerging from the sea. The island could be seen clearly from the view of Rach Gia. There are many high-speed boats running up and down the route to island everyday, creating flurrying atmosphere.

However, the stela rock has exsited for many years. The residents name it Stela Rock with the thought that it will be the witness for the history of the land.

The lumpy rocks in various sizes and shapes stick together as a block, making us think about national union during the resistance war against America. The rocks are the witness not only of time but also of history. The local people call it Old Woman rock. If taking a notice, you will see the rock has a shape of an old woman sitting with arms clasping her knees. The rock is situated behind the house of a family. Therefore, you can not see it without noticing.

Another name that makes many visitors curious is the rock at the end of the island. That is a series rocks stretching to the sea. The local people like to fish at this area because it is the home to many fish. They could catch the fish of several kilograms.
