Ha Tien is a seaside town in Kien Giang Province in Southern Vietnam. It is located at the western end of the Mekong Delta close to the Cambodian border. Although a tourist spot it hasn't yet seen many western visitors due to its remoteness. As a result the English literacy of even the hotel staff is next to nothing. However, the opening of the border to Cambodia for international travelers recently is likely to change that in the future.

The centre of town is easily walkable with Tran Hau the main commercial street running along the seaside between the big bridge for road traffic (Cau To Chau) and the pontoon bridge for pedestrians (Cau Phao).

Get in

There are buses from Ho Chi Minh City's Mien Tay terminal (about 13h) as well as from Can Tho (about 7h). The connection from Can Tho often requires a change in Rach Soi or Rach Gia from where it is about 3h.

Get around







There is no shortage of options for accommodation in this town. It seems that every other building is either a Kach San (Hotel) or a Phong Tro (a place that has rooms to rent). The epicentre of sleeping options can be considered the area delimited by Tran Hau, Mach Thien Tich and Chi Lang streets.

  • Viet Toan, 74 Chi Lang, from 80,000VND for a fan room, is a place where the staff is very friendly and one of them even speaks some English. The rooms are decent and come with TV (lucky if you get something in English), fridge, private bathroom and fan or aircon.
