The forest is crisscrossed by numerous canals 

The flooding season, around November and December, is best time of the year to visit the forest.

Aside from abundant natural resources, unique cultural elements could be found there. Local Khmer ethnic and Kinh communities live in the environs whose livelihood depends on traditional crafts such as brocade and Khmer silk weaving, sugar-making from palmyra, honeybee collection, and cajuput oil extraction.
