Hon Thay Boi – The Island That Looks Like A Mouse
Hon Thay Boi aka Mouse Island
Just off the coast of Ganh Dau in the north western section of Phu Quoc lies Hon Thay Boi, a tiny uninhabited island that literally resembles a mouse.
Mouse Island is close to the Cambodia maritime border and it is classified as a restricted zone. Tourists are not allowed to visit this island unless they have special permission from the local military. We were fortunate enough to have visited this rocky outcrop in the middle of the Gulf of Thailand as we are the official travel and tourism guide for Phu Quoc!

Mouse Island has no beach and it is surrounded by coral. Because of this we had to swim from our boat onto land. The island is home to a few nesting birds and the surrounding coast is teeming with marine life.
The following are some pictures of Mouse Island:
