    The Mekong Delta province of Dong Thap views ecological tourism as a priority in its Tourism Development Plan for 2015-2020.

Sa Dec town, which is known for its flower fields, will become a land of flowers, with a flower street running from Sa Nhien to Ca Dao.

  • Solar-powered boats around Delta

    After their success with solar-powered boats, four farmers in the Mekong Delta province of Dong Thap have been directed by local authorities to build more such boats for the tourism industry. Six boats, which can run at speeds of 20 km/h for three hours and are perfectly quiet, will ferry tourists to an upcoming tourism festival in September. Tram Chim National Park has been tasked with working with the four farmer-inventors from Tam Nong district. Previously called ‘crazy’, the four farmers made headlines recently after successfully creating their solar-powered boats.

  • Eco-friendly tours in Tram Chim National Park

    A green sightseeing tour has been launched at Tram Chim National Park in the Mekong Delta province of Dong Thap. Visitors can take the 12-km long trip, including four km on land and eight km on water, by electric car and a solar-powered boat, in just 35 minutes. The electric cars and solar-powered boats run at a speed of 30 km/h and 15 km/h, respectively, and do not create any noise and so have no effect on the local wildlife, especially birds. Located in Tam Nong district, Tram Chim, a world Ramsar site (wetlands of international importance), is home to over 100 species of plants, 100 species of vertebrate animals, 40 species of fish, and nearly 200 types of water birds, of which 15 are on the endangered list. Many bird species in the park have been listed as endangered and rare, such as Big Cormorants, Painted Storks, Lesser Adjutants, and Sarus Cranes. It also has abundant flora, with over 130 species of vascular plants.
