2. How to visit Ta Pa Pagoda & Sugar Palm Tree Field

Located in Tri Ton District about 30 kilometers from Chau Doc City in the Mekong Delta province of An Giang. The small mountain is just about 120 meters above sea level. Therefore, a long time ago the local Khmer community built an excellent path heading up the top of Ta Pa mountain.  At the beginning of the path is a gate with many patterns of winding snakes. And under the gate is a house roof with many designs of dancing Apsara. Seventy meters past the gate, tourists will see a statue of monkey Hanuman as a signboard to the mountain. In 2020, the visitor is welcomed by a magical stair from the bottom of the mountain straight to the main temple. Top tip: Be aware of your outfits when visiting the pagoda.

Best Rice Field in Mekong Delta

As Mekong Delta build up over the years, they get formed in the shape of a triangle and the deposits in this formation are of rich alluvium, which are ideally suited for growing wet rice. Biking and walking around the green or saffron yellow rice fields and learning deeply about the “white gold” in Vietnam are fantastic and educational experiences.
