Sam Mountain, Mekong Delta

(3.2/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
Climb Sam Mountain to see temples, pagodas, a military camp, and to enjoy views from the top. To see some temples, and pagodas, you need to enter a cave, which surrounded by natural scenery create serene ambience. While climbing, you can rest at one of the cafes, and have a snack at food stalls. When you reach the military camp, still in function, ask if you can take the pictures. If you get tired of climbing, you can hire, or rent a motorbike to take you up.

  • An absolutely essential site if you visit the delta. Located 5 km from the city of Chau Đốc, near the border of the Cambodge.J' accompanies all my friends who come to the Viet Nam. A place of pilgrimage busy year-round, and stormed over the Buddhist holidays. Do you drive motorcycle taxis at the top, and back down quietly. You will already enjoy the panorama on dozens of kms when he saw Cambodia on your right and the fields of rice out of sight. During the descent, which can take more than an hour, discover the many small pagodas... to finish at the foot of the hill with the three most important beautiful pagodas, the mausoleum of the King Thoại t Hầu, as well as a very interesting Museum. All the approaches to the Hill swarm of many stalls or you can make the cheapest clothes purchases of the Viet Nam, many of the contraband with Cambodia and Thailand, silks etc., without forgetting handicrafts Chăm near Chau Đốc,(prenez un guide,il faut traverser la rivière avec le bac pour plus de plaisir) (, and visit the mosques and the silk on the island factory, your day will be busy!.), but side opposite of the Sam mount. You can contact me for information and many pictures of the re gion:glzc66@hotmail.com (I live in the Mekong delta)
