Bau Trang – ‘green oasis in the desert’


Bau Trang landscape is located in Mui Ne National Tourist Area, in the territory of Hong Lam village, Hoa Thang commune, Bac Binh district, Binh Thuan province. This place is likened to a green oasis in the middle of a sub-desert with vast long sand dunes, rolling in succession, always attracting visitors.
Bau Trang’s natural landscape has a unique beauty with a combination of two stretches of clear blue water, called Tieu Ho (Bau Ong) and Dai Ho (Bau Ba). Located in the middle of white sand, these two water pools are also known collectively as Bau Trang. Local people also call this place Bau Sen because there are many blooming lotuses in it. The water in Bau Ba is sweeter than Bau Ong, the lotus is also more abundant and beautiful, almost blooming in all four seasons.
