Can Gio dist., Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Located just some 50km south from downtown Ho Chi Minh City, the outlying district of Can Gio is a ecotourism destination for a one-day weekend stretch out of the city and into the countryside, where mangroves, the beach and monkeys await you. Vam Sat mangrove forest is a part of the ecosystem of Can Gio mangrove forest with an area of 1,862ha. It has an abundant and assorted system of animals and plants including typical species of salt-marsh zone. In the wars against French colonialist and U.S imperialist, Vam Sat was a famous waterway battlefield with many resounding victories. Just few years after the war, the people have gathered here and restored the forest by growing trees to protect Can Gio’s natural ecological conditions…
