Sauntering along Xa No Canal in Hau Giang Province


 Once visiting Hau Giang Province in the Mekong delta, home to endless rice fields and canals entangled with boats, tourists should visit Vi Thanh Commune to let the soul drift with the ships and boats on the stream along Xa No Canal.

About 60 kilometers from Can Tho City, Vi Thanh Commune attracts travelers to its canal along Xa No Park with its poetic surroundings. The park runs along Tran Hung Dao Street, protecting visitors from the sun with its many green trees. It is amazing to walk in the park under the moonlight to watch the boats silently float on the canal.

The canal was formed in 1901-1903 by two French people, Duval and Guery. At night, departing from Vi Thanh Market, tourists can stroll along the canal to taste the rustic flavor of the delta. Along the canal is a statue garden with dozens of white stone sculptural works. Stepping onto the overpass, travelers can see the great length of the canal.

Xa No Canal is also a venue for exciting boat races which always draw shouts and shrieks from the crowd.

In the center of the commune is a one-hectare lotus pond which is a great place to take photos. The park has a theater that can hold about 1,000 guests to enjoy artistic performances. Near the pond is a museum displaying documents and artifacts featuring the history of Hau Giang Province.
