BAC LIEU province (l was born at Tac Say village, Gia Rai district, Bac Lieu)
After breakfast we headed to the richest coastal province in the Mekong Delta. There are a lot of places tourists can visit but I just can list three attractions that I experienced when we stopped by only.
A. Devotion to Father Trương Bửu Diệp, the martyred priest.
Father Diệp was our family's friend and he himself batized five of my brothers and sisters and me. He was killed during the war on12 March 1946 in Tac Say village. His tomb has been a sacred place visited by Catholics, Protestants and non-believers. The members of the Tac Say parish and those who were blessed and healed said that miracles have happened and seriously sick people have been miraculously recovered. Father Diệp helped the poor, the elderly and the orphans.
The Congregation for the Cause of Saints has given the green light to the case of canonization of Father Francis-Xavier Trương Bửu Diệp who sacrificed his life to defend or protect his parishioners.
B. The House of Cong Tu* (the Son of the rich Landlords) Bac Lieu.
Tourists can visit or stay at this house which was converted into a hotel that offers guests an experience/opportunity to know better about lives of the rich people/landlords who enjoyed fancy/lavish lifestyles in the Southern VIetnam during the French colonial period in the early 1900's.
C. Ancient longan orchards and a 300-year-old mango tree.
The orchards were created about 200 years ago by the first Vietnamese pioneers on the wild land along the coast but the center of attraction of this orchard is a 300-year-old mango tree that still produces thousands of mangoes year round.

This mansion was built in 1919 and used to be the biggest house in Bac Lieu. It was designed by a French architect and built with materials imported from France. Many valuable objects are still kept there.

I wouldn't make a special visit for this but if you're in the area it makes for an interesting little interlude - the house of the richest man in town who went on to squander all his wealth and leave his offspring destitute.

We stopped here as part of our tour itinerary. The story goes that this man was so rich, he even burnt money (literally) to use as fuel for cooking. You can immediately see from the design of the house and furniture that he left no detail out. Furniture made from wood, inlaid with mother of pearl or granite. Sometimes both! Decor has obviously been made to suit his tastes, as I didn't think much of it...

I'm not sure if entry costs anything, as we came here on a tour. There are guides who will happily show you around, unsure as to whether they speak English.

Wouldn't recommend going out of your way to see this place. If you're into history and artefacts, then perhaps go check it out. There are some pretty cool things to look at. If not though, you're not going to regret giving it a miss.
