Around Ca Mau
The town of Ca Mau borders the U-Minh Forest (admission 10,000d; 6am-5pm, closed Mar-May), a vast mangrove jungle which covers 1000 sq km of Ca Mau and Kien Giang provinces. Residents As well as being an important habitat for waterfowl, the U-Minh Forest – the largest mangrove forest around the world beyond the Amazon basin – which was a favourite hideout for the VC during the American War. The Americans responded with chemical de foliation, causing enormous destroy to the forests. Thanks to the heavy rainfall, the dioxin was washed out to sea and the forest is returning. Many eucalyptus trees have also been planted here because they have proved to be relatively dioxin-resistant.
Yet the mangrove forests are being further destroyed by clearing for shrimp-farming ponds, charcoal production and woodchipping, though the government has made efforts to limit these activities. In 2002 an area of 80 sq km was preserved as U Minh Thuong (Upper U-Minh) National Park.
The forest is known for its birdlife, and visitors will enjoy a boat trip around Ca Mau, though the feathered flocks aren’t nearly as ubiquitous as the swarms of mosquitoes. It takes visitors around thirty minutes to get a boat trip and costs 100,000d.
Ca Mau Tourist can arrange an 140-US dollar boat tour , but try to find better deals with locals down at the ferry pier where you can get a speedboat to Thu Bay (two hours), followed by a motorbike to U-Minh Forest for 70,000d.
