A place where humans and nature co-exist in harmony, Ca Mau is dotted with bird parks, swamplands, channels and forests.
The attractions in Ca Mau
With its dense rivers and canals system, Ca Mau is home to well-known forests: U Minh forest and Nam Can forest. Its interlacing rivers and canals have generated tangled flows in the province.

The cajuput forest has the highest biological value among other types of natural forest, with high economic value and environmental protection.
