‪Could be improved‬
אוג׳ 2018
‪This place certainly has potential. We were hoping to get a solar or quiet electric boat, but they simply do not exist. So we ended up in one o their noisy motor boats, which disturbed birds and was no good for bird watching. The driver of the boat had no interest in birds and drove way too fast. Staff spoke very little English. Considering this is a Ramsar site, it was quite disappointing for us. This place should and could do much better!‬

‪Wetlands, birds and super relaxing boat ride‬
חברים • ינו׳ 2018
‪Great place to relax and enjoy nature. Lots of birds. Relaxing boat ride. Friendly locals. This area is still being developed so advisable to bring some of your comforts and some packed food. Many local eateries but only a handful speaks English. ‬

Dear Dunu, Xin Chao! Thank you for your reviews and choose solar energy boat or wooden boat for bird watching trip and experience the eco-system without noisy than engine boat. If you wanna see more birds you should stay in homestay in Tram Chim and take a boat trip in the early morning (around 6.00 - 6.30 AM) for the long trip and you see a lot of bird by solar energy boat. More information, please contact us at info@tramchimnationalpark.com Cheers, Tony Nguyen

‪overpriced - not interesting‬
זוגות • אוק׳ 2017
‪I just wanted to share a few words to protect everybody from falling into this tourist trap. I got there without a tour, they told me that the tickets were all sold out and I had to wait for a boat to get back, I asked them how long I'd have to wait, I got no answer, could be an hour could be a day. I went to the pier myself, I booked a local pirate boat. What I mean by this, is some people, probably working for the park, are braking the rules, and are able to strike deals with tourists and take them to the exact same tour at a small fragment of the price. If memory serves, I paid around 10% of the official price to have the exact same tour, maybe the boat was not as good, but the route was the same. After taking the tour, I thanked god I didn't by tickets at the ticket office, as it'd definitely wouldn't be worth the money, nothing interesting whatsoever, although I got there during the period that the birds are supposed to come back to the park. Yeah, there were some birds that we saw from distance, the park itself was uninteresting in terms of landscape, and that was it. I'd definitely recommend to skip this "attraction" even if it's on your way to somewhere.‬

Dear nickinvn, Xin Chao! Thank you for your reviews. We are sorry to see your comments but you should book your tour with the exact price in advance as we can consult you the route and time you can see the rare birds than you try to book the tickets in tourist trap. Moreover, we noted that you should hire solar energy boat or wooden boat for bird watching trip and experience the eco-system without noisy than engine boat. If you wanna see more birds you should stay in homestay in Tram Chim and take a boat trip in the early morning (around 6.00 - 6.30 AM) for the long trip and you see a lot of bird by solar energy boat.

‪Skip the feature A1 tour but take the evening tour to area A2 for stork nest area viewing‬
זוגות • אוק׳ 2017
‪We should have skipped the feature tour of the park. This tour to the area A1 of the preserve is a waste of money. They charge 800000 vnd for the boat. So if you have 20 people in your group then it’s reasonable price. The A1 tour takes you around the swamp. You may see some wild life but not a whole lot. If you want to see more storks, you should take the evening small tour to the area A2. In this area in the evening around 5:30 the thousands of storks are flying home to their nests. The tour costs 250000 vnd per person with a minimum of 4 guests. Every tour in Tram Chim is pricey if you don’t have a big group. If you go on a weekend, you can share the boat ride cost with other tourists. However, we were there on a Monday. The preserve is fairly empty, so we had to pay full price for the tours.‬

‪Visit it in the right season, try the lunch on the boat‬
חברים • מרץ 2017
‪We visited it in early March 2017. It's not the right season so we were happy enough to spot around 10 birds. We chose the towing wooden boat, hoping that it was free of the engine noise so we could enjoy the peacefulness of the nature. Unluckily, towing means towing by a engine boat. The driver was kind enough to turn off the engine once in a while, though. I guess there would be a special type of boat (ie. no engine noise) for the tour in Sep-Dec (the rain season = mating and hatching season of the birds) so we would be able to get closer to the birds without disturbing them.

We had a lovely experience of having lunch on the boat. Delicious food at very reasonable price (grilled snakehead fish with young lotus leaves, a specialty of the region; small shrimp stir fried with "điên điển" flowers), etc, on the boat slowly floating along the stream, in the quietness of the nature and under the fresh wind.

To get there:
+) We took a taxi from Cao Lanh town for around 35 USD two ways, including waiting time.
+) We discovered that there is a bus route from Cao Lanh town center with a stop just outside the park. The fare is much less than 1 USD per person. Ask for the bus route to Tam Nông.
+) From a guy in our boat tour group: He took a coach directly from Western station (Bến xe Miền Tây) in Ho Chi Minh city and was dropped off very near the park. After spending 4-5 hours (at most) at the park, he caught the coach back to HCM. Please check at the station for more precise information if you take this option.‬

‪Plenty of birds in November‬
זוגות • נוב׳ 2016
‪I was here in November (breeding season: oct-dec) and could see plenty of birds. I'm no bird watcher by any means, but i enjoyed it regardless. Though I'd only recommend it if you're not short on time for your trip through Vietnam.

You can book your boat at the main complex on the DT843 road. Besides the ticket booth and a place to drink this place is quite deserted. Try to book your boat together with another (Vietnamese) group to make the boat more affordable.

Three options which each take 2 hours according to the staff there.
12km: the triangle as shown on the map outside the entrance
21km: the triangle plus up and down a river deeper in to the reserve. Turning around at a watchtower you can climb during a short break. I did this and I recommend it because there were a lot of birds on that additional stretch of river.
28km: unknown to me

You also get a guide who speaks decent English and is knowledgeable on the park and birds.‬

‪Overall, good place to visit. But...‬
זוגות • אוק׳ 2015
‪If you love birds, this is the place to visit.

1. Call and check if it's the right time to visit.
We read on their website and they say flooded season (Sep-Dec Lunar calendar) is the best time to visit Tràm Chim. This is when most of birds come to breed and lay eggs, we can take a special boat trip to go really close to them and see their nests, etc. Since we are in the right season, we decided to visit the park. However, when we got there, they said this year there wasnt much water so they had canceled 3 out of 5 boat trip routes, included the special boat trip. The other 2 left are short trips and just cover a tiny bit of the park so we couldnt see many birds as we expected. So you'd better call and make sure what they have before getting there.

2. If you drive there or on a tour then it's easy. If you travel alone by bus then prepare yourself to ride a ~3,30 hour coach to reach Cao Lãnh city and then ~1.30 hour local bus to get to Tràm Chim- Tam Nông. We saw some taxis in Cao Lanh city so maybe you can catch taxi to get there directly without using the local bus.

2. Foreigners should bring their passports to check-in at the guest house within the national park. They will have to register foreigners and do some complex procedure. Other documents, e.g driving license, wont be accepted.

3. The guest house in the National Park is very run down. The biggest hotel in that area is Hoàng Gia hotel (one start) and it's about 240.000vnd/day. Clean, some facilities doesnt work properly but it's better than sharing a room with cockroaches.
N.B: it's around 5km away from the park and there is no taxis there. The only way to commute is walking or asking someone at the hotel to drive you as a xe ôm (motorbike taxi).

4. Nobody speaks English, the receptionist we met at the park doesn't know English. The tour guide that goes with us on the boat trip didnt speak English either. I wonder if it's true to everyone there. Anyway, unless you are traveling with a local or know a bit of Vietnamese, you might struggle a lot there.‬

‪Very good place to visit for natural lovers‬
משפחה • מאי 2015
‪Cham Trim National Park in Dong Thap is cover the area of more than 7,500ha, one of Ramsar preservation in the world and home of many rare birds. You better to arrive there in the afternoon around 2:00pm, take a long trip boat for 3 hours (36km) to go deep inside the National Park, from where you can view birds come back in the afternoon. The boat trip cost you around 60usd for a long trip and 25usd for a short trip (1 hour). It is nice to be there.‬
