The Green Tra Su Forest
Glide placidly in a wooden canoe through a forested swamp. Watch the rower’s paddle slice into the unbroken blanket of green duckweed floating on the water’s surface. All around you in the thick stands of scented cajuput trees are the sounds of many different birds calling to each other over the persistent hum of insects. The tranquility of southern Vietnam’s Tra Su Forest preserve, a sanctuary of unspoiled beauty teeming with birds, waterfowl, bats and reptiles, is mesmerizing. Climb the 25 meter observation tower to survey from above this unique ecotourism destination in the Mekong Delta.
