Water Puppet Tours

With its numerous national parks, white sand beaches, colourful villages, pagodas and ancient monuments, forests and islands, Vietnam is a land of often surprising beauty, offering cultural depth and history, increasingly combined with tourism-friendly areas offering all the facilities a modern traveller could wish for.

Vietnam’s people are its greatest asset: gregarious, friendly and eager to meet visitors. In the bustling cities, the often chaotic streets contrast ox carts with limousines, ancient rituals with sophisticated technology, and are ruled by the ubiquitous moped.

Our strength is in translating these opportunities into detailed, practical itineraries. We do luxury travel and event planning, as well as a wide range of beach, family, honeymoon, adventure, golf, veteran and cultural tours.

There is no better way to experience a destination than through the perspective of the local people. At Water Puppet Tours, this key element of local insight drives every step of our process of tour design and delivery. We provide tailor-made tours individually crafted for each client, achieving this by emphasizing the direct working relationship between the client and the tour designer and operator.

Built in colonial style with low-rise French architectural design, the four star Victoria Chau Doc Hotel blends perfectly with its natural surroundings. The hotel is located on the banks of the Bassac River crossing and is an ideal base to explore the fascinating Chau Doc region.

The Victoria Chau Doc Hotel offers front seat views of the river habitat with its famous floating fish farming villages, floating markets and Cham villages.All rooms and suites are comfortably furnished, beautifully decorated and offer river views. Some units include complimentary services and drinks.

The Victoria provides speedboats for guests to enjoy cruises along the Mekong River and explore the Chau Doc region.

The hotel’s Victoria Spa is ideally located on the rooftop terrace and contains 5 massage beds with tranquil and beautiful views over the Bassac River. The in-house Bassac Restaurant serves Vietnamese and European cuisines.

Located in the Mekong Delta, Victoria Chau Doc Hotel is a 3-hour drive from Can Tho and less than a 5-hour drive from Phnom Penh. Ho Chi Minh City is 270 km away, which takes approximately 7 hours by car. Transport services can be arranged by the hotel staff.

Chau Doc Vietnam is an incredibly friendly and bustling little city, it has a colour scheme to match its ambience, with bright pastel hues of green, blue and purple adorning many of the newer shopfronts. If you’re arriving here from Cambodia, be prepared for the shock into technicolour paradise.

Chau Doc locals are known for being very warm and approachable — even the xe dap loi drivers, as pestering as they are, are friendly. English is spoken in most of the foreigner-targeted guesthouses and hotels, and most restaurants have an English menu.

A highlight of a visit to Chau Doc is a boat trip on one of the small paddle boats that collect near the western end of the park. For a few dollars an hour they’ll paddle you around the many floating raft houses and fish farms. Doing this at dawn can be very photogenic and rewarding.

A second attraction, just outside Chau Doc, is Sam Mountain — more of a hillock in fact — which has reasonable views over the surrounds. The views are pretty rather than spectacular, though when combined with a visit to the pagodas around the hill’s base, this makes a worthwhile afternoon jaunt.

Chau Doc is also the closest large town to the Vietnamese/Cambodian river border crossing. If you’re heading to or from Phnom Penh by boat, you’ll pass through Chau Doc, so try to allow for an overnight stay.

Aside from its river scenery and hilltop vistas, An Giang province, in the heart of what Cambodians consider to be Kampuchea Krom, bears many of the same war-time scars as neighbouring Cambodia. During the Khmer Rouge regime, Pol Pot’s forces made a number of bloody incursions along the border with An Giang. In April of 1978 a massacre took place in the hamlet of Ba Chuc, some 50km southwest of Chau Doc, with over 3,000 people killed. While a memorial has been erected to the memory of those murdered, it’s unfortunately not easily visited from Chau Doc unless you’re willing to pay for a day-long tour.
