Thanh An island is completely distinct from Can Gio district and Ho Chi Minh City, making it the perfect location for people who adore the simple and rural life of the river. It is located in Can Gio district, about 70 kilometers east of Saigon. Moreover, you can go home during the day without spending much time.

The scenery is beautiful and attractive since Thanh An has not been overly exploited for tourism. You’ll be pleased by the tranquil setting and friendly greeting of the local fishermen. Visit the mangrove forest, the pier, the salt fields that are about to be harvested, or make a leisurely stop at the fabled stone path that spans the sea. In addition, there are various meals in Thanh An that have mouthwateringly exquisite marine flavors.

Where can I go in Ho Chi Minh City for a day trip? Vam Sat would be the best option. About 45 kilometers from the heart of Ho Chi Minh City, in the Can Gio mangrove biosphere reserve, is this well-known ecotourism destination. Many different plant and animal species coexist in this common residence.

Visitors can engage in unique crocodile fishing experiences in addition to exploring the mangroves and other natural areas. About 40 crocodiles have been kept alive in the lagoon. You will stand on a boat coated in B40 wire mesh at the same height while fishing, which provides very good safety without having to worry about falling or being punctured.

The Quan Am Pagoda (also known as the On Lang Assembly Hall) is revered by the Chinese population in Saigon. A group of Phuoc Kien traders who relocated to Vietnam founded this location so they could get together for support and to fulfill their religious needs. People refer to it as a pagoda because there are still devotional activities after the gathering hall. In addition to worshipping and looking at the typical architectural works, visitors here also have strange moments of peace.
