Running along Cai Be floating market, Tan Phong Island is situated on Tien River, Tan Phong commune, Cai Lay district, Tien Giang province. With its alluvial and freshwater throughout the year, Tan Phong retains the convenient position in the gardening economic development as well as aquaculture and fisheries. The island is the specialized cultivation of fruit trees and also one of the famous eco-tourism attractions in Tien Giang province. On annual vacation of festivals or Tet holiday, thousands of tourists from all parts of Mekong Delta converge in Tan Phong Island to enjoy the pleasures of “tam con” (bathing on the island) and specialties on island.

As one of the famous islands in Mekong Delta, Tan Phong Island was formerly Cu Island under Dinh Vien district and composed by 6 beautiful islands with a total area of 2,430 ha. Tan Phong today looks like a blue pearl merging alluvial Tien River. Here, tourists will find it easy to catch fruit orchards of rambutan, pomelo, longan or durian. From early dawn, the island is extremely crowded by the sounds from Cai Be floating market. When the sunrise comes up, the island is picturesque with boats flickering on the river in the combination with and “poles” hanging abundant goods and fruits. This scenery is one of the typical cultural characteristics of water regions attracting tourists to participate in Mekong Delta travel to this wonderful island.

The pretty small concrete road lied next to two canals leading into the households in the island is filled with lush fruit orchards. Rambutan is the kind of fruit accounting for much area of arable land in Tan Phong Island because it is easily suitable for dunes, easily grows, and rapidly develops with high output. The space seems much cooler and to get smaller with the lush orchards. Taking a stroll under the laterite road about 1m wide, tourists will have the opportunity to admire the red ripe bunches of rambutan on the branches, jackfruit on the trunk and the smell of ripe longan blowing in the wind. There is no smell of smoke and dust of the city but only the petite roofs hidden in lush gardens, a gentle small canal through the heart of the island instead.  The nature and human look like blending into each other. The weariness of the long journey seems to be left behind. Setting foot on Tan Phong island is to meet one of the most beautiful and fascinating attractions in Mekong Delta. We, Mekong Eco Tour, will offer you a good tour!
