Tra Su bird sanctuary
The Tra Su bird sanctuary (Tra Su forest) is a special place for nature lovers and well worth a visit. The forest covers an area of 850 hectares and is an important natural habitat for many colorful birds and other rare animals. There are more than 140 different kinds of plants in the sanctuaryand many of the Cajuputs, which are very common in the delta, can be found here.
During the Vietnam War, the forest was a base of revolutionaries and was badly damaged. After the war, the authority of An Giang province reforested the area and therefore the Tra Su forest is now a fruitful place for plants and animals.
The tour of the floating habitats is possible by motorboat, rowing boat or on foot. Since Tra Su forest is just 20 km from Chau Doc, you can combine a visit of Tra Su with one of our Mekong Delta tours, e.g. connecting the Tra Su Tour with the 3-day tour from Saigon to Phnom Penh or with the exclusive 4-day tour.
