We depart early for Chau Doc. Breakfast is served during navigation. We arrive at Chau Doc slightly after lunch time. We arrive at Chau Doc. Local boats ferry us to visit fist rafts and the Cham village, a minority ethnic group.

Chau Doc is a remote border town and the cultural melting pot of Chinese, Cham, and Khmer communities. The city is situated at the intersection of a tributary linking the Bassac and the Mekong River. What Chau Doc lacks in size, it makes up in colors. Lots of it. Vivid and vibrant. Even its storefronts are painted in warm pastel shades. We are taken on a short panoramic tour of the city. This is the perfect opportunity to feel the throbbing vibration of the local markets.

We return to Toum Tiou I slightly after sunset before being served dinner on board. The vessel moors overnight. Return to the boat after sunset.
