The Sala eco-tourism complex has been opened in the Mekong Delta’s Vinh Long province as a new green destination and new highlight on the tourist map of Vinh Long in particular and the Mekong Delta in general.

About 25 km from the center of Vinh Long city, the eco-tourism complex sits on an area of about 20 ha among coconut groves and fruit orchards in My Thanh commune, Tam Binh district.

With investment of more than VND40 billion ($1.7 million), it boasts two main parks: Sala Farm and Sala Amazing.

On 5 ha, Sala Farm features fields, fish ponds, vegetable gardens, livestock farms, and outdoor folk games. Here visitors can experience being a farmer for a day, performing local people’s tasks such as ploughing, catching fish, planting vegetables, and feeding some of the animals, making it interesting for children and international visitors.

Meanwhile, Sala Amazing is totally different, with a modern space of pools and lakes for swimming, boat racing, and team building activities. It also has a golf course on the lake, providing a new experience for golf enthusiasts.

There is also an exhibition house displaying traditional agricultural tools for farm work, fruit orchards, a picnic area, and typical dishes from the Mekong Delta prepared from fresh ingredients, ideal for families, colleagues, and groups of friends to relax on the weekend.

Capable of catering to hundreds of people, the complex also has a green space for events and parties.

The Sala eco-tourism complex is built upon the idea of green tourism with experiential activities, according to Mr. Dang Xuan Nam, Director of the Sala Viet Co.. Based on the advantages of the local tourism industry, with popular destinations such as the Cai Ngang relic area and the Professor Tran Dai Nghia memorial area, Sala is expected to contribute to the diversity of the province’s tourism attractions and provide experiential tourism associated with the local cultural identity of the Mekong Delta, attracting more domestic and international tourists.
