Long Xuyen comes alive after the sun has set. Many blocks of the downtown around the mall and the Catholic Church buzz with street life.
There are many restaurants and street vendors. A good place to get a view of the typical life of a large town in the Mekong Delta far away from the typical tourist routes. It is exciting and fun walk around and talk to the many locals who are so friendly. Everyone spoke to us on the street and we felt we made many friends.
A large city which, on the surface appears to have little for tourists. It is a vibrant city with plenty of restaurants and markets.
Best seen by motorbike and with someone who speaks Vietnamese.
