Particularly, Dau Tieng Lake is also a frequent place for sightseeing. Being far away from the residential area, the lake has crystal like, clean water and on sunny days, the water reflects the blue color of the sky.

Stretching along the lake is the Cau Mountain and a valley next to a primeval forest close to its bank, and scattered here and there in the lake are small islets. The lake's bank with its green grass coverage could be an good place for camping and tourists in Vietnam travel coming there could go fishing or watching the locals catch fish in the lake.

Cau Mountain is 198m in height with a diverse floristic composition and protective forest extending to 1,600 hectares. At the top of the mountain is Thai Son Pagoda, which attracts many pilgrims in the 15th day of the first lunar month.

Nearby Cau Mountain in the rubber plantation is Cau Nom Lake, which also has very pure and clean water with fresh air and tranquilizing atmosphere. There is also Tha La peninsula with an area of 57 hectares next to the lake. On the peninsula, locals grow many tropical fruit trees such as mango and longan. Tourists in Vietnam tourism will surely appreciate the food specialties of the locality.
