Canal Biking

Enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside! Chau Doc has numerous roads and tracks ideally suited for meandering through the agrarian landscape, following quiet canals, through sleepy villages going about their daily lives. Head out of town in any direction and within a few kilometres you will have left the more developed regional centre behind and find yourself pedaling along well made roads past friendly folk, always with a ‘Hello!’, and with very little traffic. Canals get smaller, bridges get ricketier, life gets simpler and your appreciation of the simple lives of some folk becomes more apparent. These snaps are of the Kenh Dao circuit, an easy 20 kl ride starting and finishing at the city center. The roads are mainly connecting roads and across lotus ponds and family fish farms Nui Sam/Sam Mountain is always visible to ensure you don’t end up down on the coast. Once you have completed the Kenh 4 canal road, you can take the decision to venture up to the Nui Sam township and experience the busy Phoc Ba/Lady Buddha temples and shrines. Don’t be deterred by distances around here. The roads are flat, there is plenty of shade and you can always stop and buy a cold bottle of water.
