Introducing Chau Doc

Draped along the banks of the Hau Giang River (Bassac River), Chau Doc sees plenty of travellers passing through on the river route between Cambodia and Vietnam. It is a likeable little town with significant Chinese, Cham and Khmer communities. Its cultural diversity – apparent in the mosques, temples, churches and nearby pilgrimage sites – makes it a fascinating place to explore even if you aren’t continuing to Cambodia. Taking a boat trip to the Cham communities across the river is another highlight, while the bustling market and interesting waterfront provide fine backdrops to a few days of relaxing before heading out.
