The province is circled by flourishing plants in garden village along the river bank. Moreover, Tra Vinh is a home of Khmer culture and architecture which reflect through the construction of many pagodas in the region like Hang Pagoda, Ang Pagoda, Nodol Pagoda and so on. Ang Pagoda is one of the ancient pagodas in Tra Vinh. It is surrounded by old trees near Ba Om Pond.

Ba Om Pond’s atmosphere is cool and pure all year around. It is one of the most prominent sites in Tra Vinh.

Tourists coming here will have chance to swim and sunbathe in the clean and fresh water of Ba Dong Beach as well as sink in the sound of thousands of many kinds of birds (like storks, pigeons, etc.) in the harmony with nature.

Every year, My Long Sea Worshipping Festival (10th – 15th day of the 5th lunar month) is organized at Ba Chua Xu Temple. This festival was first held by fishermen in My Long in 1937 to seek peace. Gradually, the festival has grown bigger, and it now attracts many participants and tourists.

I will arrive at Tra Vinh City in early January 2019. I would like to hire a boat with a motor there and sail from Tra Vinh along Mekong to the sea and back. Where can I write now (or go when I will arrive at Tra Vinh City) with the request about such trip?
Thank you!
