Chau Doc is a border town in the Mekong delta between Vietnam and Cambodia. The town itself is situated on the west bank of the Bassac River and is a border crossing for river borne traffic; while the small Sam Mountain has an excellent view of the flat plain on the other side. Its midland/low mountain location affords it is a little cooler climate than many other areas of Vietnam at certain times of the year. The local minority groups are easily identified by their darker skins and a chequered scarf instead of Vietnam’s ubiquitous conical hat! They add color and variety to this region and this is most apparent in the traditional fabrics and clothes worn, as well as the local architecture which merges the Chinese, Khmer and Hindu influences that crossed these areas at different times in history.
