Ben Tre: Thousands of Visitors Coming to "Vung Tau 2" on Doan Ngo Holiday

 As a tradition, the Doan Ngo Holiday, which is held on the 5th of the Fifth Lunar month, is one of the main holidays of Vietnamese people, especially those of the Chinese origin. On this day, many religious as well as traditional worshipping rites are taken.

This year, the Doan Ngo Tet draws thousands of visitors from across Ben Tre province as well as other localities such as Ho Chi Minh City, Long An, Tien Giang, Vinh Long, and Tra Vinh provinces. Visitors flock into Tan Phu and Tien Long communes in Chau Thanh District for many festivities. Then, they move on to the mud flat on the Ham Luong River for mud bath. The mud flat here is called "Vung Tau 2" for its likeness to sea beaches in Vung Tau City. The Doan Ngo Tet this year coincides with the ebb-tide so that it is quite convenient for mud bath and water splashing activities.

Moreover, the mud bath and water splashing this year also occur in season with different kinds of fruit such as rambutan, durian, mangosteen, etc, making it much easier for visitors to choose and enjoy tasty fruits. And orchard owners also have a good season of income from fruit selling.

"Vung Tau 2" is now becoming one of Ben Tre's tourist sites that attract thousands of visitors every year.
