Don't go! After a long and horrendous journey getting there (people were nice though) we expected an eco sanctuary but instead we were faced with inhumanity and frankly, animal cruelty. The circus is heart wrenching. The monkeys were either chained or crammed into small cages....More

We went on a guided tour to the Mangrove forest and the crocodile farm. I can't say that I was impressed at all (I had more fun in the Mekong!). You need to be careful of the monkeys (they stole a pair of glasses off...More

It's suitable for a day trip from Sai gon. It's possible to ride mootorbike, via ferry-boat on Dong Nai river. Seafood is good and cheap. Weather is Ok but the seawater is not clean enough for swimming.

It was ok but luck is not at our side. The heavy rain cause us to rush instead of enjoying the mangrove forest and the guerilla base. Overall was just ok!

A truly impressive place to visit (organised by Saigon Tours). The mangroves are impressive with abundant wildlife on view (far, far more than the turd-like Indian Sundarbhan!). The boat ride out, which I recommend, is the best way to experience the mangroves and the bird...More

Hi Carol. I'm sure there are nicer places to see animal life than this one. To be honest, most of us and other visitors (especially children) didn't enjoy the visit, quite the opposite. We were scared of the monkeys as they... More
