Sam Mountain, Mekong Delta

3.4
#1 of 7 in Parks in Mekong Delta
Sam Mountain is a sacred place for Buddhists, its environment packed with numerous temples and pagodas. Although it seems of special importance to the Chinese worshippers, Buddhists of all ethnicities flock here for the views and a chance to see notable religious sites. You'll see an old military outpost on the top, a remnant of a time when the Khmer Rouge made raids against the Vietnamese civilians. See Sam Mountain and all Chau Doc has to offer by arranging your trip with our Chau Doc road trip planning app .
