Chau Doc - Last stop before Cambodia!

Thursday, 9 Oct 2008 | Views [448]

After a 10 hour arduous night train to the Sapa Mountains, in a tiny cabin with hard mattresses and 6 to a cabin(!), we were woken at 6am with a woman at our door shouting 'Coffee, coffee'! This was our cue to get up and get out of the train... Bleary ... Read more >
