The center of the Mekong Delta and an ideal town to look around this region. The famous water market is about 1 hour from here by boat. If you do not join to a tour, you can rent a boat to look around the Mekong Delta area

Arriving: If you come here by a public bus, the bus station is 2 km N from the town center, at the corner with a big road to a ferry pier and a relatively smaller road to the town center. Come out to the smaller one and take a bus toward right to the last stop, Chau Van Liem street. Good starting point to find a budget hotel.
