Chau Doc a city in the heart of the Mekong Delta

Mekong Delta LogoLocated on the banks of the Bassac River, Chau Doc is a serene town near the Cambodian border with sizable Chinese, Cham and Khmer communities. The cultural diversity is obvious: the little town has many historical sites, such as the Thoai Ngoc Hau mausoleum and the Quan Cong temple. Chau Doc is located on the Hau Giang diffluence.

There is lively boat traffic on the river and also a colourful floating market. Taking a boat trip to the Cham communities across the river is another highlight, though its addictive market and peaceful waterfront make fine backdrops to a few days of relaxing.
