As the autumn days begin to get colder, thousands of spondias pinnata trees can be spotted beginning to shed their leaves in Bau Ca Cai mangrove forest in Quang Ngai province, creating breathtaking scenery for visitors to enjoy.
Located in Binh Thuan commune of Binh Son district, Bau Ca Cai mangrove forest is situated approximately 40 km northeast of Quang Ngai city.
Implemented by the Green Climate Fund in collaboration with the Vietnamese Government, the forest is part of a wider project titled "Improving the resilience of vulnerable coastal communities to climate change related impacts in Viet Nam”.
Typical beds of Bau Ca Cai mangroves are between 100 metres to 200 metres long, with each spondias pinnata tree growing roughly 10 metres in height.
Known as one of the province’s pristine destinations, Bau Ca Cai mangrove forest has been recommended by a number of travel companies that offer tours around Quang Ngai.
Tourists are able to rent a boat from local people in order to admire the mangrove forest during the day.
Aside from enjoying the region’s fresh air, visitors are able to participate in a range of interesting activities, including rowing boats and casting fishing nets, according to photographer Duy Sinh, the author of the photo collection.
Ha Long City residents are concerned as rapid urbanization in recent years has affected mangrove forests in the city.
Located in the Mekong Delta province of An Giang, Tra Su indigo forest has developed into a popular eco-tourism site among visitors to the western region, particularly during the flooding season.
