Tra Su indigo forest, the green banquet in flooding season
VietNamNet Bridge - Every October-November, tourists flock to the Tra Su indigo forest in Tinh Bien district of the southern province of An Giang to see the green and peaceful indigo forest in the flooding season.
With an area of about 850 hectares, Tra Su indigo forest is covered with a lush green color of duckweeds. This will be an experience you cannot miss when floating on a boat in the indigo forest.
Go to Tinh Bien district, An Giang province, about 100 km from Long Xuyen town. You will see a red soil road leading to the Tra Su indigo forest. Along the road are immense rice fields and tall palm trees. You will see colorful ducks along the road because farmers dye their ducks in yellow, red, green, purple ... to identify their ducks.
Arriving at Tra Su, you will have to walk from the parking lot to the forest gate. Along the sides of the road are lotus ponds and lush green trees.
Boat tickets to the mangrove forests are pretty cheap, only VND50,000-60,000/boat/two hours for a group of 3-5 people. The motorized boats will take visitors deep into the mangrove forests to enjoy the wild and green scenes.
Reaching a small wharf in the forest, visitors will move from the motorized boat to a small boat rowed by hands. From here, the boat will take visitors to the most beautiful area of the forest, where the water surface is covered by duckweeds.
You can touch the duckweeds, admire the bright yellow color of dien dien flowers or watch thousands of birds in the forest.
After moving back to the motorized boat, you will be taken to the observation tower, where you can see the vast forest.
After exploring the mangrove forests, you should visit other tourist sites in An Giang such as the Ba Chua Xu Temple, Forbidden Mountain... or enjoy palm juice.
