Dong Thap Muoi Explore @ Flower Farm, Sampan Hand Rowing in the Cajuput Tree Forest, Ancient House…

Dong Thap Muoi (or an inland wetland of Mekong Dela) earns around 10, 000 ha of forestland and is one of the most interesting areas with the cajuput tree jungles, lotus ponds, ancient houses, fruit farms, bird parks…
Yes, it is far from Ho Chi Minh City - around 3 hour driving to the southern Mekong Delta. Of course, not many tourists have known and visited this land. Finally, it is still quite strange with all.

A journey to Dong Thap, we will have such a relaxing time to wander through the cajuput tree jungle, row hand boat through the water canals, walk into the local flower farms, lotus ponds, bird parks…

The local different way of cooking is also an interesting thing to make your trip more attractive.
