Kien Giang top destinations

1/ Phu Quoc island

The first attraction I want to mention is Phu Quoc island. Located 120km from Rach Gia mainland. It beautiful with white sand beaches and It’s still unspoiled at the moment. When you want to espace from some big noisy cities, you must put it into your consider-list.

Some activities you may want to try when traveling to Phu Quoc: swimming, cuba diving, snorkeling, sky diving, fishing…etc. Snorkeling in Phu Quoc island is more enjoyable and better than other places because you have more private space for you and your family. Service providers will drive you to some small pirate island, so you can enjoy your time together.
2/ Ha Tien : It will be a mistake if I dont list Ha Tien as one of top destionations in Kien Giang.

Ha Tien located just 100km away from Rach Gia City and It’s bordered with Kampot province, Cambodia. It’s a good choice if you want to cross to Cambodia from Ha Tien.

What can you do in Ha Tien? You can take your time to see Mui Nai peninsula relaxing on the beach and try some fresh seafood. If you love hiking, Ha Tien is also a good choice. Take your time to see Da Dung mountain, buy some ticket, then hike around the mountain. Ha Tien has more beautiful places to offer. You can get on a boat to get around the Hon Phu Tu then head to see a hidden cave exploring its historical story in the past. Hang Pagoda is also a must-see destination.

One more reason you should visit Ha Tien is that Exploring Mekong travel provides free motorbike tours to Ha Tien for budget travelers/backpackers. for more information please check out our Ha Tien tour or contact us.
3/ U Minh Thuong National Park:

It’s time for adventure and get away from big cities. Sadly that so many travelers haven’t heard about U Minh Thuong forest or haven’t had a chance to visit the forest due to lack of information and hard to find a travel agent providing tour to U Minh Thuong forest.

U Minh Thuong National Park is located in An Minh Bac commune of An Minh district, and Minh Thuan commune of Vinh Thuan district, Kien Giang province, 365 km south-west of Ho Chi Minh City. U Minh Thuong National Park is located in the plain of the Mekong Delta, and the site reaches only a few metres in elevation. U Minh Thuong or upper U Minh, is the northern of two extensive peatswamp areas in Kien Giang and Ca Mau provinces. The other peatswamp area, U Minh Ha or lower U Minh, is situated 30 km to the south.
U Minh Thuong National Park is situated in an area of freshwater wetlands, comprising peatswamp forest, seasonally inundated grassland and open swamp. The soil layer is covered by a layer of peat, 1 to 3 m thick. The core zone of U Minh Thuong National.

It’s idealy great for adventurous travelers and photographers who are interested in wildlife photography. You can take a boat to explore the forest including bird watching.
