    Chau Doc

    Chau Doc is a Vietnamese river city close to the Cambodia border. There are a number of floating houses (the floats are empty metal drums) which provide a convenient way for families to raise fish underneath. What makes Chau Doc interesting is its mix of communities, Khmer, Cham, and Chinese. The Cham are mostly Muslim, and leave in isolated communities across the river, complete with mosques. It's an incredibly friendly and bustling little city.
