Can Gio is a coastal district of Ho Chi Minh City. It is seen as a “green lung” of the city and is connected with the center land by a ferry ride. From a poor area, Can Gio now has asphalt roads going to each commune. It has many attractions like Rung Sac eco region, Vam Sat resort, beaches with delicious seafood like shrimp, fish, crab, clam, oyster and others.
People came and invested in Can Gio to breed shrimp, fish or crab in the past. Recently, in addition to those products, swiftlet farming has become popular because of its high profit.
We are going to introduce a photo collection about farming in Can Gio District taken by our staff in January, 2014.
