We arrived in Chau Doc from Cambodia without booking or planning anything. Little did we know that we were about to meet the most amazing lady we've ever met while traveling. Ms San is the nicest, most helpful and truly caring person you could ask for. We ended up adding an extra night in Chau Doc just to hang out more, and we had so much FUN! She turned this little town in the Mekong into our best time in Vietnam.
In our time there, we went up Sam Mountain for a sunset, took a boat to the Cham villages, went to the bird sanctuary and spent some time helping local children. In her spare time, Ms San has children come to her office and she helps them learn english. One of the travellers who was also helping had a bad stomach (probably from street stall food or something) and Ms San took care of her all night. The next day she checked on her five times and brought her food. You can tell that she LOVES her job and truly cares.
So if you take two things from this review, make sure it's these:
1) You will have so much fun with this genuine, amazing lady
2) Go to Chau Doc and book through Mekong Chau Doc Travel!
