National park pilots experimental tourism

Tram Chim National Park in Tam Nong district, the Mekong Delta province of Dong Thap, is piloting experimental tourism in the flooding season, which involves tourists in fishing activities, harvesting wild rice, visiting breeding grounds of birds and sailing to enjoy natural landscapes.

Director of the park Nguyen Van Hung said that the pilot aims to diversify tourism activities and heads towards a sustainable tourism with greater community participation. Through such activities, tourists can gain an insight into the daily life of fishermen, thus raising the preservation awareness of tourists as well as the native community. 

Experimental tourism is hoped to consolidate the park’s title as a wetland of international importance (Ramsar site), helping attract more support from global organisations for its activities. 

Dong Thap province has approved a budget of over 14 billion VND (666,700 USD) for eco-tourism and environmental services in the park from 2013 to 2020. At present, Tram Chim is offering tours around block A1 by water. It boats 3,000ha of indigo forest and is home to a primeval forest and a nearly 1,000ha of wild rice. 

Visiting the park, tourists may well be overwhelmed by a bird sanctuary covering tens of hectares. Nesting in vast forests all year round are various water birds like little cormorants, lesser whistling ducks, herons and wild ducks, as well as tens of thousands of white storks. 

Tram Chim is most beautiful in the flooding season when water from the Mekong River inundates the whole area, turning it into an oasis among an immense body of water dotted with the yellow flowers of Sesbania Sesban, purple water lilies, pink lotuses and the vivid green of the indigo forest.

  • I spent my 05 holidays in Hanoi and Halong Bay with Vietpremier service. It was a memorable trip for me and my friends. Not only the professional service, but also the intelligent tour arrangement and seasoned tour guide make us feel highly comfortable, minus the cost for us but still bring the best service. This impressed trip made me miss all about the person, scenery, lifestyle and I’m really want to be there again. Those are unforgettable holidays with me and my friends. I’m so excited with my next trip with Vietpremier J

  • Phung and our guides responded perfectly to our needs. We were tired after the train journey and so the only part of the itinerary we would change would have been to just spend the afternoon by the pool at the resort rather than taking a tour of the Hoi An sites
  • Mrs. Lisa Marie Behan and our family

  • Mr Liem was a wonderful guide he was professional but still showed a good sense of humour. We would never have been able to cross the roads without his help. Your design and management of our trip were excellent. I just realised that I hadn’t given feedback on the meal in the Mekong on the first day – this was at the house on the Mekong river, this was very remiss of me as although all meals were excellent this one was exceptional and the best we had for the entire trip, I should also have mentioned that the guide (a lady) we had on the Mekong cruise was excellent.
  • Ms. Jennifer Grace Agustin & Friends

  • A very well designed tour. We were very thankful to have contacted you and felt that your arrangements for us made everything a lot easier. Mr. Trang He was a fabulous guide who was quite knowledgeable about everything. We really felt like he made our trip even more enjoyable. His English is also extremely good and he tries hard to accommodate. Our favorite was Phu Quoc but we also really enjoyed our tour of the Mekong Delta though didn’t need two nights in Can Tho because there isn’t much to do in the city. Maybe should have done one night on a boat in hindsight but wasn’t sure we would like that.
