Table of contentHide All

    Recognized as a world-class biological reserve by UNESCO in 2000, Can Gio Mangrove Forest is a top destination with its system of canals, its spectacular ocean scenery and its tranquility.

    Approximately 50 kilometers from Ho Chi Minh City, Can Gio Mangrove Forest is described as the ”green lungs” of Sai Gon as its extreme biodiversity counterbalances the city’s pollution. 

    There are 200 species in the region, as well as more than 150 species of flora aided by mineral rich soil and tropical climate. The fertile river is home to hundreds of species of freshwater fish, crabs, shrimps and more,  and a famous fishing spot. 

    The wetlands provide refuge for many species of shore and migratory birds including the spot-billed pelicans and painted storks. And one of the highlights of Can Gio is the sanctuary for crocodiles, which were hunted to near-extinction in the southern Mekong.
