The Cham Village in An Giang are Muslims so their culture and customs are quite different from other peoples in the region, arousing the curiosity of tourists to the province.


The first impression of the Cham village on visitors is the stilt houses which have three pillars and three tiled roofs. In these houses, Cham men wear round hats, long-sleeve shirts and sarong (traditional Cham dress) while Cham women wear long dresses, bands on their heads and veils on their faces. Cham women embroider head bands, scarves, handbags and xarong and the men sell various products. A few of these villagers raise oxen and cattle and fish the river.
