Vam Sat

Dentro da reserva de manguezais de Can Gio, a floresta de manguezais de Vam Sat e local turístico ecológico de pântano salgado está localizado dentro de uma seção de floresta entre os rios Vam Sat e Long Tau. Destruído durante a Guerra do Vietnã, agora cresceu e está protegido como um parque selvagem. Os visitantes podem explorar Bat Swamp para pescar caranguejos ou raposas voadoras penduradas nos galhos das árvores, e há uma fazenda de crocodilos onde você pode fazer um passeio de barco e jogar guloseimas de peixe para os répteis famintos. Uma torre de observação da vida selvagem de 15 metros de altura oferece um excelente ponto de observação para observar pássaros ou tirar fotos panorâmicas da natureza selvagem do pântano, e na Ilha dos Macacos você pode passear pelas trilhas da ilha entre milhares de macacos.

The basics

A boat trip down the Saigon River is an atmospheric way to reach Vam Sat, as skyscrapers and urban sprawl slowly give way to fields and then to low-lying mangrove swamps. Adventurous travelers can also join a bike tour to pedal here 1-way from Ho Chi Minh City (powered transfers back are essential). You can also ride a sampan, admire the flying foxes in Bat Swamp (Dam Doi), try fishing for crabs, or watch the spectacular bird life.

Things to know before you go

  • Hides, an observation tower, a birds nest exhibit, and a dedicated 250-acre (100-hectare) bird sanctuary make Vam Sat a great choice for bird-watchers.
  • Whether or not you choose to fish for crabs, don’t miss a delicious mud crab lunch.
  • Vam Sat is not wheelchair accessible and parents will want to opt for slings or back carriers over strollers.

When to get there

Bird-watchers should plan to visit Vam Sat during the northern hemisphere winter (roughly December–March), when migrating birds escape the cold. Whatever your reason for visiting, avoid weekends and the Tet New Year holiday for a quieter experience.

Vietnam for Bird-Watchers

With three very different climates in North, Central, and South Vietnam, Vietnam is a great choice for bird-watchers. In the south, besides Vam Sat, try Cat Tien National Park, home to over 300 species including rare partridges and pheasants; in the north, try Cuc Phuong National Park, with woodpeckers, hornbills, and more; in the central highlands, Kon Ka Kinh National Park makes a great off-the-path choice.
