Tri An, around 75 km from Saigon, is one of the largest artificial lakes in Southeast Asia.

Located on the Dong Nai River, the lake stores water for the Tri An hydropower plant and is blessed with around 40 small islets, of which Dong Truong and O are the most popular with their pristine beauty.

Both islets are situated in Vinh Cuu District, Dong Nai Province. From a wharf at Dong Truong, visitors can hire a boat or canoe for VND110,000-130,000 to glide over the crystal blue waters of the lake on a 40-minute trip to O Islet, right next to Dong Truong.

For those who want to stay overnight, a boat is available for hire.

Since the islets remain unknown and undeveloped, visitors have to bring their own supplies like food, water and other necessities for camping.
