Can Gio is the largest mangrove forest and the lung of Ho Chi Minh City. It was recognized as a world Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in January, 2000. It performs many valuable ecological functions such as coastal stabilisation, and protection against coastal erosion, oil spills and storm surges. Following the green road, it is full of signature mangrove trees standing together in the sunshine with billowing roots floating on the water. Sitting on motorboats, exploring the deep mangrove forests, looking for the famous Sac Forest soldier base, stopping by Dan Xay Bridge, discovering Bat Swamp in Vam Sat and conquering the 28-metre Tang Bong Tower for the panoramic view of Can Gio with storks flying at sunset are among the best activities here. Listed as a red site on the conservation book of cultural heritage and nature, the mangrove forest is an attractive destination for travellers who want to enjoy a picnic and discover nature. To this zone, visitors can catch a bus No. 75 at 23/9 Park or ride a motorbike by themselves along Nha Be District and Duyen Hai Road.
