Tram Chim is literally understood in Vietnamese as melaleuca tree and bird. Indeed, this invaluable natural reservation are featured with evergreen melaleuca forests and more than 100 bird species.

Melaleuca is a submerged kind of plant that is popular in Indochina, especially in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam and some regions of Thailand. This plant has a strong root system and totally livable, allocates in the salt water areas. In the dry season of Mekong Delta, plants are hard to survive, but not melaleuca. May be partly because they grow in groups rather than individually. The evergreen forests of melaleuca stretches to hectares, with the distribution ratio ranges from 5 000 – 20 000 melaleuca trees/hectare. Sitting on the small boats of Mekong Delta and go through the melaleuca and other evergreen forests of the National Park, you will find your peace back in soul. Fresh air, quietness, out-of-sight green forests, sounds of nature, and the echoed traditional folk songs of Mekong Delta people, they will all rest your mind and soul. Mekong delta tours Vietnam
