Ca Mau Overview:
Cà Mau is a province of Vietnam, named after its capital city. Before 1975, Ca Mau was named as An Xuyen.
It is located in the Mekong Delta of southern Vietnam, and is the southernmost of Vietnam's 58 provinces. It is bordered on the north by the Kiên Giang and Bạc Liêu provinces, on the west by the Gulf of Thailand, and on the south and east by the South China Sea (often referred to as the "East Sea".) Its name came from the Khmers who inhabited the area before the arrival of the Vietnamese, cà mau means "black" in Khmer.
Being surrounded by sea on three sides, fishing is an important industry in Cà Mau province. An extensive network of canals also supports a strong agricultural sector, as well as providing a popular means of transport. The U Minh biosphere reserve and Mũi Cà Mau, the southernmost point of Vietnam, serve also as important tourism destinations. The Mũi Cà Mau National Park is located at Mũi Cà Mau.
Ca Mau is around 380km to the Southwest of Ho Chi Minh City, via the National highway 1A and 63. Around 180km to Southwest of Can Tho. That is a very good transportation road- networks to Ca Mau from other provinces in the Mekong Delta.

 Tourist Attractions in Ca Mau

Nam Can
Nam Can

Except for a minuscule fishing hamlet (Tran De) and an offshore island (Hon Khoai), Nam Can stakes its claim as the southernmost town in Vietnam. Few tourists come to this isolated community, which survives mainly from the shrimp industry.
At the southern tip of the delta is the Ca Mau Nature Reserve, sometimes referred to as Ngoc Hien Bird Sanctuary. It’s one of the least developed and most protected parts of theMekong Delta region. Shrimp farming is prohibited here. Access is by boat.
At the southern end of the reserve is the tiny fishing village of Tran De. A public ferry connects Tran De to Nam Can. If you are obsessed with reachingVietnam’s southern tip, take a boat from Tran De to Hon Khoai Island.
If you’re looking to visit another remote spot, you can hire a boat to take you to Dat Mui (Cape Ca Mau), the southwestern tip of Vietnam. However, few people find this worthwhile.
