Monuments and Parks

Coming to Ben Tre, one should not bypass some of the most visible features of the land: parks and monuments present everywhere. These are all purported to retain memories of the once glorious time of the revolutionary struggles for freedom and independence.

The Tuyen Linh Pagoda

The Pagoda is located in Minh Duc Commune, Mo Cay District. It was built in 1861, once frequented by many patriotic intellectuals and artists in the 1920s. Later on, it became one of the revolutionary facilities throughout the two resisting wars. Especially, Tuyen Linh Pagoda was where Junior Doctor Nguyen Sinh Sac - the father of President Ho Chi Minh- stayed for a while, and here he met with local patriotic intellectuals.

The Coconut Cake of Giong Luong

Giong Luong formerly was the place name of a stretch of elevated land along the bank of Ham Luong River, Ben Tre Province. It had gone into the far back past for a long time, and now just exists in the memories of the people who have been living here for generations.

The Khau Bang Mangrove Forest

Ben Tre is developing the natural mangrove forest reserve in Thanh Phu District. Khau Bang Mangrove Forest is among those in the plan. The Khau Bang Forest is valuable in that it helps reserve and protect the coastal ecosystem. It also is useful in environmental protection and increasing the aquatic resources.

The Handicraft Villages

Favoured by good climate, with low rate of whirlwind and tropical typhoons, and all-year-round orchards, Ben Tre is considered quite appropriate to bee-keeping. Going on village paths in Chau Thanh, Giong Trom, Mo Cay and Cho Lach Districts, visitors can witness interesting scenes of honey vendors bustling and jostling along the way to invite visitors to buy or just taste their honey.
