Go to Tinh Bien district, An Giang province, about 100 km from Long Xuyen town. You will see a red soil road leading to the Tra Su indigo forest. Along the road are immense rice fields and tall palm trees. You will see colorful ducks along the road because farmers dye their ducks in yellow, red, green, purple ... to identify their ducks.

During flood seasons, almost every daily activity of delta residents is attached closely to the immense river. It is easy to catch the peaceful, simple sights of local kids playing in the water or of fishermen professionally casting nets.

However, the western waterways sight is considered most beautiful at sunset where rows of palm trees are reflected charmingly upon the falling sun. Tourists can also participate in picking lotuses and caltrops along the bank of Vam Nao River.
