Review: River Hotel Ha Tien, Staying Overnight on the Way to Kampot from Vietnam

After weighing in whether or not I should stay overnight in Ha Tien on my way to Kampot from Chau Doc, with the limited number of minibus going to Cambodia from Vietnam on a daily basis I decided to just stay in Ha Tien for one night.

I created a brief itinerary about some places to visit in Ha Tien, but I ended up not going anywhere except for dinner because the weather was too hot and I found out that Grabbike wasn’t available in the city. So yes, if you want to get around the town in Ha Tien, the best option is to take a taxi.

Despite all the travel bans around the world due to Covid-19, I’m not gonna stop writing some of my experiences I had on my last trip around Indochina. It’s better to update it now when I still have a good memory about my journey. Besides, I took almost 2 months that I got plenty of things to write about.

Now that you’ve probably read about my last post about places to visit around An Giang Province, today I’m gonna write a review about the hotel where I stayed for a couple of nights in Chau Doc: Hai Chau Hotel

If you’re looking into the accommodation around Chau Doc, chances are you won’t find as many hotels or hostels as you get in the other cities in Vietnam. I suppose it’s also because there aren’t so many international tourists coming to Chau Doc. If anything, most of them who come to Chau Doc are probably enroute to or from Cambodia.
