Kenh Ga is supposed to be a floating village, but nowadays everyone lives in houses. People were rude and asked for money all the time.
Some of my best photos were taken in the late afternoon as I headed for the floating village in a (noisy) motor boat. I would have preferred the more peaceful rowing, but it would take much longer. Photos of ladies fishing, water buffalo, house boats, quaint village, rice fields with the karsts in the background. Very pleasant and no other... More
The experience of traveling by boat through the canal, among the rice paddies, was a fun experience. As was seeing the locals fishing from their small boats, rowing with their feet. The surrounding area is beautiful, but you need to take it with a grain of salt. This country is in the long, slow process of industrializing itself, but much... More

The Hot Springs advertisements can be misleading, as they show pictures of a giant, clean, covered set of pools. However, when we arrived on a weekday, these big pools turned out to be drained and closed, and they directed us to a... More
We rented a motorbike did other activities but never found that spot and nobody could help us out. There are NO signs for either tourists spots and people do not speak english over there...
We visited Kenh Ga to go to the hot springs and the pool but the resort is really in bad shape. So we only visited the village along the river. It was fun because the place is charming, the locals were very friendly and we made lovely pictures.
