Why go to Tan Chau?
Several nearby attractions offer a glimpse into everyday lives of local residents
Not much to see in the city itself
A worthwhile stop if you want a real feel for how people along the Mekong River live
Currency & Best Way to Get Money?
The official currency in Vietnam is the dong. You'll want to have dong in hand by the time you get to Tan Chau as you will not have the chance to stop at an ATM. Any place your tour guide takes you to purchase local items (woven straw goods and silk items are specialties of the region) will also accept U.S. dollars.
