CHAU DOC

The main jetty is in the town center next to the Victoria Hotel. A sampan trip to visit the Cham villages is a must to view the cat fish farms contained in great bamboo vats suspended beneath the floors of the Cham houseboats.

The town itself retains a 'French' style charm with many old colonial buildings now housing offices of the Vietnam Communist Party and its many branches.

The market at Chau Doc is excellent and well worth a wander through. The town is easy to walk around or you can choose to enjoy a cyclo ride. There is a rather groovy Catholic church with Jesus, the Virgin Mary and various saints happily transmorgified with Vietnamese physiognomies. The Victoria Hotel is a pleasant place for a drink in its river view bar which not only has a good billiard table but also wifi!
