It’s all about timing, because visiting Tra Su in a wrong time, you’ll miss out all that beautiful sights, and would have to wait until next year to come again.
In Mekong Delta – the rice bowl of Vietnam – there’s a special time of the year called floating season. Starting from July and lasting until the end of November in Lunar Calendar, the floating season blows a new and fresh wind into the life in Mekong Delta. As water from the headwater flows rapidly down, it filled up a whole forest called Tra Su with not only water, but also various freshwater fishes and plants, creating a magnificent eco-system.
250km away from Ho Chi Minh city, Tra Su Forest possesses typical characteristics of a mangrove eco-system. 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.
Now is the perfect time to visit Tra Su, as water filling up the forest gives people a chance to easily go deeper inside by paddling through green lily pads, enjoying a unique and beautiful landscape that can only be seen in floating season.
