Cham Villages

These days, despite some historical tensions, Chau Doc is noted for its harmony and integrated religious philosophic tolerance. The second largest religious philosophy is the Islamic Charm community villages are primarily located just over the Song Hau/ Hau River. These are accessible by a short ferry ride [+/- 3,000 dong] where the pole houses and commercial activities along the riverside can be observed. A leisurely bicycle ride through the villages is a must where you can see over 10 mosques along quiet roads. An ideal route is to turn left after the ferry, stopping to observe the older Mubarack Mosque, then proceeding around a bend a few 100 metres along the main road, to again take a left turn over a small canal bridge and into the quieter suburbs. Following the roads along the canals will bring you to an old Buddhist Temple. There is plenty of interest along the road to the right of the ferry point as well with mixed villages of Cham and Khinh Vietnamese living in harmony. An alternative is to cycle over the bridge to the Cham villages in the Phuoc Tho district. Enquire at reception for the directions to a Cham silk shop behind the floating fish farms in this area.
