The two loved each other passionately and were happy together.

However, their happiness was not complete when Lam was called into the army to protect the kingdom. Before leaving, they promised each other that they would wait for each other, not betraying their trust.

Years passed, life still passed peacefully in their small village. But every day, Hong’s heart waited for her lover to return, but there was no sign of Lam.

Waiting and longing have turned Hong into a slender body, dressed in pure white, standing under a single neem tree, looking at her yellow, pale body in the shallow water.

Hong could not bear the pain of loss and committed suicide in the river at Tuyet Tinh Coc. Since then, local people believe that Hong’s spirit still lives forever in this peaceful river, and any couple who comes here will be protected and blessed by Hong’s spirit for their love.
