Long Xuyen floating market

On the way to Long Xuyen, tourists will visit the largest flower village in Sa Dec. During the flooding season, flowers are planted on trusses making the entire flower field seem to be floating on the water.

Upon arrival in Long Xuyen, tourists take a ferry ride to Ong Ho Islet. There, they will experience a bike tour around the islet to enjoy the romantic and peaceful scenery on Ong Ho Islet, a historic venue in the Mekong Delta. Wooden craft workshops, smithies and incense stick-making entities remind tourists of ancient villages in the southern region in the old days.

Long Xuyen floating market on the Hau River is a wholesale market supplying agricultural products. Although the floating market is not as big and bustling as Cai Rang floating market in Can Tho, it has its own attractions. Specialties in the flooding season such as linh fish, dien dien flowers and water lilies are sold there. Such a setting is ideal for capturing lively moments in the flooding season.

Tram Chim National Park

Tram Chim National Park, covering 7,588 hectares in Tam Nong District, has been recognized as the 2,000th Ramsar Site in the world. It is among the last wetlands in Vietnam, an important habitat for the Sarus crane which is listed in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Tram Chim will become an island in the flooding season when it is separated from the rest by water. The park is now dotted with thousands of white storks.
