VietNamNet Bridge - To go to Tra Su cajuput forest, you will have to drive nearly 200 km from Ho Chi Minh to Tinh Bien, An Giang provnce. The forest is the most vivid in the afternoon with thousands of birds flying overhead.


The road to the Tra Su cajuput forest has been paved to the forest gate. This site is usually quiet in the morning or during weekdays. This is a tourist destination preferred by the scenery and the opportunity to explore exciting life of all species of birds in the forest.


Flooding season, ranging from July to the end of November, is the most suitable time to visit Tra Su. During this time, the vast forest is decorated by dien dien flowers or water willow trees bending on the water surface, several fish swimming and sunlight dancing on the water. There are two ways to explore the Tra Su: going around the forest by motorbike or bicycle or by boat.


The forest is open for visitors from 6 to 17 pm, without admission ticket. You can rent a double bike for VND20,000 to bike along the 12km long embankment between two lines of cajuputs or a small boat for VND75,000/person.


The center of Tra Su forest is the observatory station. From here, you can see the entire mangrove forest. Tra Su forest was planted in 1983 by the rangers.


After moving into the forest core by a motor boat, you will have to change to a rowed boat to get into the bird sanctuary.


Afternoon is the liveliest time of the mangrove forest. The 845-acre woods are filled with birds. All visitors are requested to wear a conical hat to avoid bird fences. Birdsongs clutter the forest.


Countless species of birds like stork, herons, teals, rails, corks, etc. perch on branches or fly over. Thousands of bird nets are built on trees.


Many young birds are wet because they fall to the water while practice flying. It takes half a day to explore all this beautiful forest.


You can enjoy typical dishes of the flooding season of Tra Su cajuput forest, such as braised fish, dien dien salad, bee honey, etc.
