Xeo Quyt Forest (aka Rung Tram) is a Mekong River cruise destination and park sized 52-hectares (128 acres). The forest is located near My Hiep village (Vietnam, Dong Thap province), approx 35 km (22 ml) southeast of Cao Lanh. This is one of Mekong Delta's last natural forests.

Here, cruise ship tourists can also see a well-preserved underground house and a secret tunnel - used by the Vietnamese during Vietnam War (1955-1975). The remains of Viet Cong bunkers can be seen both via boat tours (sampans) and on foot (via walking trails). In the middle of the forest were the former headquarters of Provincial Party Committee. South Vietnamese and Americans knew about camp's existence and attacked it on regular basis with ground troops and bombing.

Currently, Xeo Quyt Forest is designated national park and open-air museum where tourists can explore the command center, hiding places and caves. The attraction is a more relaxed and much calmer alternative to a trip to the Cu Chi underground tunnels in Saigon.
