With an area of 131sq.km and a population of about 5,000 residents, Thanh An Island was viewed as the most significant gateway of Sai Gon – Gia Dinh in the past. It is located between two large rivers: Thi Vai and Long Tau.

The island is accessible by boat only. Visitors can catch a boat to Thanh An from Can Thanh Town from the ferry terminal located next to a Co-op supermarket.

At a seashore village like Thanh An, visitors should not miss the seafood. Enjoying sea breeze along the coast, and tasting fresh seafood: what more could you expect? Moreover, the seafood here is sold at a very reasonable price.

Along with that, visitors can also go around and explore how the simple but kind-hearted people here live with the main jobs including fishing and salt-making. Though the jobs are hard, local people here still welcome visitors with cheerful and friendly smiles and strong hugs.

Visitors could visit the island for one day, but staying overnight is a good choice, too.

A trip to Thanh An is more of a cultural experience trip than a scenic one. It is an ideal destination for people who want to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and indulge themselves in nature.
