The coastal area of Binh Dinh has three impressive lagoons: Tra O (Phu My), Dam Thuy (Phu Cat) and Thi Nai (Quy Nhon city), which Thi Nai lagoon is the largest one as well as the “nursery” for aquatic species. Thi Nai used to be called Bien Can lagoon because the water was drained, which left the lagoon’s bottom inert. There was also a time it was called Hai Hac Dam but the local people gave it the name “Thi Nai.”

Thi Nai Lagoon covers an area of over 5,000ha of water surface, more than 10km, width to nearly 4km. It is a place where natural resources are gifted, and is a place of biodiversity with rich mangrove ecosystems, including: 25 species in seagrass area; 64 species of phytoplankton and 76 species of fish; hundreds of species of birds, of which 23 species are of waterfowl and migratory birds while 10 species are of forest birds. Plenty of other creatures reside in the stunning oasis.

The photo captured the lagoon with its residential clusters, the rice fields, and aquaculture pond system with the highlight of Thi Nai bridge.

Thi Nai Bridge (also known as Nhon Hoi Bridge) crossing through the lagoon, is the pride of Binh Dinh’s people. The bridge is located about 3km from the centre of Quy Nhon city, which belongs to the Quy Nhon-Nhon Hoi Bridge and Road System that has the length of 7km. The most convenient way to reach to famous tourism areas in Quy Nhon such as Eo Gio, Ky Co, Phuong Mai sand dunes or Trung Luong is to cross the bridge.

All the streams of Con River, the largest river in Bing Dinh and Ha Thanh River all flow back to Thi Nai lagoon, creating a rich source of alluvium. When the tide is high, the surface of the lagoon is sparkling. In the days that the tides are low, the bottom of the lagoon appears and the landscape looks like an abstract painting from the perspective of the photographer.  Photo: VnExpress
