Long Xuyen

Long Xuyen (Long Xuyên) is the capital city of An Giang Province, in the Mekong Delta region of southwestern Vietnam.

Get in

By bus

Long Xuyen can be best reached by bus, which takes about 5 hours from Ho Chi Minh City or 1.5 hours from Can Tho.

Get around

The city itself is not as large as its close neighbor Can Tho and the centre of town is easily walkable. Like any other Vietnamese city there are plenty of xe-om motorcycle drivers or a bicycle with cart attached (xe loi), which is a specialty of the Mekong.

Another easy mode of transportation is renting a bike from a streetside bike repairman, although most foreigners would prefer a motorbike to go farther into the province when time permits.
