Visiting Tra Su Bird Forest and wetland in North East of Mekong River.

 

Tour Overview

 

Depart from Chau Doc and travel through the beautiful countryside to Ba Chuc, a small village with a sad history. A lotus shaped memorial pays homage to the 3,157 villagers that were massacred here by the Khmer Rouge in April 1978. In a glass enclosure many of the remaining skulls and bones can be seen, grouped by age and gender. The nearby Phi Lai Pagoda is the site of many of the killings, and a collection of black and white photos taken at that time recalls these horrific days.

 

Continue to Tra Su Forest located 25km northeast of the Mekong River. The forest and wetlands provide a sanctuary for a wide variety of colourful birds, animals and plants, and is rapidly gaining an international reputation as a destination for ecological and scientific research tours. Explore the picturesque waterways by motorboat and rowing boat to see the mangroves and the wetland birds. Back on land, climb the bird watching tower for far-reaching views over the unique forest and surrounding mountains.
