Vietnam - Central Vietnam (Chapter)
Central Vietnam is loaded with historical sights and cultural interest, ravishing beaches and outstanding national parks.
The village of Kenh Ga (Chicken Canal) gets its name, apparently, from the number of wild chickens that used to live here. Today it’s the riverine way of life and stunning limestone formations that are its main draw.
The local people seem to spend most of their lives on or in the water: watching over their floating fish-breeding pens, harvesting river grass for fish feed or selling vegies boat-to-boat. Even the children commute to school by river. This used to be largely a floating village, but as fortunes have improved more and more houses have been built.
From the pier you can hire a motorboat (70,000d) for a 1½-hour ride along the river around the village.
