Tra Su is a wonderful place to visit from Chau Doc. It's only 25 km from the town, with beautiful Villages through fields and friendly people. My family really enjoyed the fresh air here. It was great. As we go back on that childhood. Nothing better to harmony with nature. Firstly we went in a boat motorised through the forest and then later in a row boat. Cabbages The water looked like a green field with birds walking on it. The best time to visit in September or November when the forest is enough water for sailing boats and you can go everywhere by small boats. It was beautiful and tranquil. We were lucky enough to see herons, bitterns, egrets and many types of wading birds. On the way there we visited a Khmer Village where a family weaved made ​​of the most beautiful Ikat silk. We bought a few things to celebrate when the land here. My mother feel relaxed and comfortable. . I enjoy it. We will certainly visit this place within your next trip

Not much attractions around Chau Doc and I found Tra Su forest was great if you have time in ChauDoc. Been here with some friends and had arrow head boat Local name " Vo Lai" to go through mangrove forest to get stunning view and many species of birds in the afternoon when birds come back their nests. Wonderful slow sampan ride and little walk to step up to watch tower but do not like "little zoo" ( may be set it up for local tourists) where they put python, deers and other animals in little narrow iron case.
Generally speaking It was worth a visit

Tra Su is a wonderful place to visit from Chau Doc. It's only 25 km from the town, through villages with beautiful fields and friendly people. We took the dirt road and it was really nice. The boat trip in the wetland of cajeput forest is really amazing. You start with a motor boat through the sanctuary before a smiley local woman row you around on a sampan. The trip followed by a short walk to a viewpoint for a panoramic view of the whole area. There are lots of birds. The visit in the sanctuary is 2 hours plus 1 hour each way on motorbike makes a wonderful half day trip. Highly recommended.

As good as everyone says. The motorbike tour there was amazing with lots of stops for local food and checking out chilli and cucumber farm. Beautiful row boat around this very special place. I'm not into birds but the sanctuary is incredibly special and unique

We found in Vietnam that it is often the small sights that are the most magical, and Tra Su bird sanctuary is one of those. About an hour's motorbike ride from Chau Doc, you enter the sanctuary and are taken on a boat journey initially by motorboat and then rowed by hand through an amazing world of water, trees and of course lots of birds. We were lucky enough to see herons, bitterns, egrets and many types of wading birds. Even if you are not a bird watcher, it is still worth a visit just to experience this enchanting place.
