NDO – Ben Nom, a branch of Tri An lake in Phu Cuong Commune, Dinh Quan District, Dong Nai Province, has long been famous for its "sunken islands" combined with the green of the developing algae growing on the lake’s surface in the dry season, creating an amazingly beautiful picture.

When the lake dries up and the water stream narrows, the locals let ducks out to eat the green algae on the lake surface.

The fishing boats on Tri An Lake are anchored in the Ben Nom area, creating a poetic scene.

It is easier for fishermen to catch fish during dry season.

During the time the water dries up there are only several small puddles, fishermen just need to walk on the lake to catch fish.

The lake’s bottom creates a green pasture where cattle can come to find food.

Cattle go to the remaining deep pools in Ben Nom to drink and soak themselves in the cool water.

According to local people, the round marks are bomb craters, a vestige left by the wars of the past.
