Ca Mau is Vietnam's southernmost town. Somewhat isolated from the main city and braced against the Bac Lieu canal, Ca Mau is the perfect location if you want to drop off the earth and isolate yourself. The silky silt deposited by the Mekong River creates swamps which are home to a variety of wading birds. The entire area is dotted with rice fields and shrimp cultivation farms.
Visiting Ca Mau is like dropping off the earth. It is the ideal way to disconnect with the world and reconnect with yourself. With its pristine beaches and gentle forest cover, this town located in the middle of the Mekong delta is the perfect immersion into Viet Culture. There are not many 'tourist locations' you can visit, but there are a few relaxing locations. A visit to the Ca Mau Floating Market will have you wow-ing at the Mekong Rivera and he surrounding views. Maybe you can even barter and buy something! The Cao Dai Worship Area is a riot of colour and is a nice place to visit. Apart from that, you can also take a boat ride through the mangroves of U Minh Forest and glean some insight into the flora and fauna of the tropics. You can also choose to visit the Hon Khoai Island the surrounding beaches and lighthouse. Overall, Ca Mau is you perfect relaxing tropical holiday and you are sure to go back with an enviable tan!
