What to explore at An Binh Island?

An Binh Island homestays are a great alternative for those looking to stay in Vinh Long for a night. Meandering paths through lush greenery and waving children on bicycles await travellers willing to make the journey by ferry across the river to get here.

If you get a bit stir crazy from laying in a hammock, Chua Tien Chau is just a few metres from the ferry crossing. Viet Artisans is a few hundred metres from the ferry crossing and offers hand-made goods in a serene garden. Sip a complimentary tea while perusing wares produced by disadvantaged residents living in nearby villages. Those looking for a bit of surreal entertainment can head to Vinh Sang, a 12-hectare entertainment centre. The sprawling property offers games of chance, ostrich riding, go-karting, an artificial lake and sadly one of the most depressing zoos in Vietnam.
