This is the honeycomb which is being exploited at Muoi Ngot Ecotourism Site in U Minh district.

The honeycomb is on display at the U Minh Forest space to serve the needs of visitors who want to explore local culture and tourism destinations.

Beekeeping is a unique traditional profession of residents in Lower U Minh Forest, which was included in the list of National Intangible Cultural Heritage by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism in 2019.
