We also enjoy sampan ride and pedal down narrow natural waterways. Stopping at a local home to try seasonal fruits (such as longan, pineapple, watermelon, rambutan, papaya, jackfruit etc…).

Late afternoon, we hike up to the sacred Sam Mountain with its panoramic view over the vast plains into Cambodia. Our guide will tell you the history of VinhTe canal which connected HaTien to ChauDoc. This canal brings fresh water from the Bassac river into the immense delta area, so it plays an important role as a border canal between Vietnam and Cambodia. Descending down Sam mountain, we will see the famous Lady Chua Xu Temple (1820) and Thoai Ngoc Hau tomb.
