Giang Điền Waterfalls, located 40km to the east of Hồ Chí Minh City, is an eco-tourism site where people can enjoy nature and avoid the heat and pollution of the city.

The 67ha site in Đồng Nai Province boasts forests and natural waterways. The three waterfalls are named Chàng, Nàng and Giang Điền (the biggest one).
Elders in the area say it used to be home to the Mạ ethnic group. Legend has it that a couple who were not allowed to marry committed suicide together, and two streams sprung up and created Chàng and Nàng.
City dwellers often head to the site for a camping weekend.
