The God Fish Stream is a fascinating tourism destination in Cam Luong, Cam Thuy, Thanh Hoa. This has been around for a thousand years under the base of Truong Sinh Mountain. The place does not only draw travelers because of the majestically natural sceneries with the high mountains, long rivers and a huge forest, but also is better known with a unique and special type of fish that often swims densely in the stream. No one in the immediate areas knows exactly what type of fish that is, but it is called The God Fish due to many mystical stories on these special creatures. The local people believe that the fish can bring misfortune to those who dare to catch and eat them; therefore, they protect the fish carefully and never dare to catch them.

In addition, this area is an interesting destination with many religious and cultural attractions. Beside the temple that local residents construct to worship the God Fish, there is also another pagoda in the area named Snake God Pagoda. The old stories tell that on a specific day during the year, the snakes come to this stream and protect the fish, so the people in this area have built a pagoda for these snakes as well to appreciate their work and also pray for a peaceful life. The area also has a considerable number of Muong people, which give visitors the chance to understand more about the culture of this ethnic group by participating in their traditional activities such as Pon Pong Dance, brocade textile or pipe wine.
