What to Expect

Cat Tien National Park is a protected area, located 150 km north of Ho Chi Minh City. The area was damaged by the American War, although many large trees survived and have made a full recovery. Lots of wildlife has since returned to the area; the park is now home to around 350 species of birds, more than 400 species of butterflies and over 100 hundred mammals.
