Hai Chau, Chau Doc Hotel: A Recommended Place to Stay in An Giang Province

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.

Anyway, it was serendipity to match with this cute Vietnamese guy even though he stopped talking to me and removed me from Instagram for no reason after a while. Because guess what? I may not find my last visit to Vietnam as fantastic as the first one, but no doubt Chau Doc has now become one of my favorite cities in Vietnam!
