The Forests of Xeo Quyt

If you visit during the wet season you will be guided by boat by a lady clad in black, like the revolutionaries during the war. The environment gives you the feeling that you are in the midst of pure nature, with bird calls echoing throughout the forest. The boat ride is quite a delight to watch the skills of the guide as she manouvres her boat in and out of the tree-covered area. This place is attracting more and more visitors every year and is truly a very unusual place to visit. Your senses will immediately be prickled by all types of scents and smells; the sweet smell of the cajeput flowers. Don't let the jumping fish frighten you. The forest will remind you of a great painting spread out before you, plants turn on and off with the sunlight playing on them, a remarkable spectacle! The estuary of the Mekong Delta is a nature lovers' paradise with thousands of ha. of cajeput forest, which prevents the briny water from reaching further inland and controls the level of humidity in the atmospere here.
