NDO – As the largest brackish lagoon in Southeast Asia, Tam Giang Lagoon bears both the wild and quiet beauty of a natural treasure and can totally wow any visitor coming here, particularly during sunset.

Tam Giang Lagoon is located in the heart of the Tam Giang - Cau Hai lagoon system and is famous for being the lagest brackish water lagoon in Southeast Asia.

About 15km from Hue City, Tam Giang Lagoon is located in the districts of Phong Dien, Quang Dien, Huong Tra and Phu Vang in Thua Thien Hue Province.

Tam Giang Lagoon covers an area of about 52 km2, stretching about 24km in a northwest - southeast direction from the mouth of O Lau River to the mouth of the Huong River.

The lagoon is currently developing brackish and saltwater aquaculture, with a current total farming area of more than 4,700 ha, mainly tiger shrimp intercropped with crabs and other species of fish.

Local fishermen live mainly on small boats and earn their living by fishing in the lagoon.

Coming to Tam Giang Lagoon, tourists not only enjoy local specialities but also admire the stunning magical beauty of the vast lagoon which mother nature has bestowed on it.

The best time to enjoy the beautiful sunset on Tam Giang Lagoon is from 17:30 to 18:45.

The purple sunset light mixed with the sun seems to make the lagoon even more romantic.
