The Tra Su Cajuput Forest
Only 30 km southwest of Chau Doc lies the Tra Su Cajuput Forest, one of the most beautiful destinations in the Mekong Delta.
The Tra Su Forest is an ecosystem of cajuput trees and a flooded mangrove forest that provides a breathtaking backdrop to the plants and animals of this paradisiacal park.
The swamp area is a perfect location for hundreds of species, from plants, fish, snails, crabs, frogs to aquatic life, providing food for the overlying storks and other birds.
Tra Su Cajuput Forest is home to an estimated 140 species of plants, 70 species of birds, 11 species of animals, 25 species of reptiles and 23 species of fish.
There are some hiking trails in the forest and an area with a viewing platform worth a walk.
On the way through the park there are many different species of birds to watch and often one sees beautiful lotus flowers - the floral symbol of Vietnam.
We stayed in the Luxe Hotel, a beautiful brand new hotel in Chau Doc.
It takes only 10 to 20 kilometers from Tra Su Forest to reach the famous spiritual tourist attraction of An Giang, such as Nui Cam, Ba Chua Xu Nui Sam Pagoda and the Cham Mosques on the Hau River.
