Tra Su Forest
This sanctuary is located about 20 km from Chau Doc and covers an area of approximately 850 hectares. A wide variety of colorful birds and other animals can be found here: storks, bats, snakes, turtles … Particularly interesting to watch are birds that can walk on water: because of their low body weight they do not fall through the densely grown floating habitats.
The locals in this area built their houses with bamboo canes and fastened the roofs in trees. During the Vietnam War, the Tra Su forest Cajuput was a base of revolutionaries.
If you want to visit the protected area you should plan in at least 3 hours. The tour through the habitats can be done by motor boat, rowing boat and by foot. From a high observation deck you will have a beautiful view over the mountains in the area, the expanses of mangrove forests and numerous birds.
