    1. My pleasure! 🙂 I hope this article can attract more visitors to the area. It’s such a shame that people see the Mekong Delta as a mere day-trip destination from Saigon.

      1. Yes hopefully it will help attract more people. I am almost guilty of the day-trip position as I have done it a few times though did do one overnight one too but i would have to spend longer there.

      2. Maybe next time 🙂 I think doing a day trip is a safe option. Good accommodations are rare in this area, and transportation is slightly inconvenient for independent visitors.

  1. The whole area looks beautiful, and although I was in Chau Doc many years ago it feels like I’ve never been there. We were on a tour that also promised a homestay at Sam Mountain, but we were taken to a different place instead. And next morning very early went to the Cai Rang floating market which was something I’ll never forget.
    Wonderful photos Len. You make me want to go back.

    1. I’m glad that you enjoy the post, Alison! It was such a shame that the tour skipped a night on Sam Mountain. Except for the usual route between HCMC and Can Tho, I think the rest of the Mekong Delta was often overlooked, even among domestic tourists. Have you tried anything at the floating market? 🙂

      1. Wise choice! I tried Gordon Ramsay-recommended noodle stall and got food poisoning afterward… Bad luck or something foul in the cooking water.

  2. Au Giang looks like an interesting place to visit with so many distinctly different towns and districts. I love the scenery around Sam Mountain and the Tra Su Cajupu Forest looks enchanting. Thanks for sharing. Linda
