Chau Doc Town in An Giang province

Located at the junction of a tributary connecting the Bassac and Mekong Rivers and the Bassac River itself, Chau Doc is well-known as an incredibly friendly and bustling little city. The city has a color scheme to match its ambience, with bright pastel hues of green, blue and purple adorning many of the newer shop fronts. You will be exciting very much by Chau Doc’s beautiful landscape when you arrive in the city from Cambodia.

Popularly famous by its friendly locals with warmly welcome – even the xe dap loi drivers, as pestering as they are, are friendly. English is commonly used in most of the guesthouses and hotels for foreign tourists. English is also the main language appeared in menus in restaurants there.

The most exciting activities of a visit to Chau Doc is a boat trip on one of the small wooden boats that park near the western end of the park. You will have a chance to discover many floating raft houses and fish farms with a very cheap price, only few dollars an hour. It would be very photogenic and rewarding for visitors, especially at the dawn.

Moreover, Sam Mountain which is located outside Chau Doc is also an attractive attraction. From this position, visitors will have gorgeous views over the surrounds. The views are pretty rather than spectacular, though when combined with a visit to the pagodas around the hills base, this makes a worthy afternoon trip.

Chau Doc is also the closest large town to the Vietnamese/Cambodian river border crossing. If you are heading to or from Phnom Penh by boat, you’ll pass through Chau Doc, so try to allow for an overnight stay
