One of the lesser-known attractions of the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam is the Tra Su Forest. The forest is a former plantation that is now a wildlife reserve. There are canals which are flooded (usually between November to March) and there are boats that will take you on tour.

Leaving the crowded city behind, Tra Su Forest is the place to come for a trip full of fresh air, nature discovery and specialty dishes of the rich Mekong Delta. The forest is about 20km from Chau Doc, which is on the Vietnam/Cambodia border in Southern Vietnam. There are tours that visit from Chau Doc, or can hire a motorbike and see some of the other sites in the area on the way. On the way there is plenty of birdlife and you will see beautiful lotus flowers – the floral emblem of Vietnam. The speed boat takes you into the interior of the reserve where there are smaller boats with rowers waiting for the next segment of the trip. This is where the trip gets more relaxing as you now only have the sound of the rowers oar while gliding through the flooded forest.

The wet season is also the best time when the water level rises by two meters and the forest is entirely flooded
