All Things you need to know before travelling to Soc Trang Vietnam.

Soc Trang is 180 kms away in 5 hours driving by private car transfers from Saigon (Ho Chi Minh city) to the South via the National Highway (NHw) 1A which passes by My Tho, and via NHw 60 which passes by Ben Tre and Tra Vinh. The population of Soc Trang province is over 1.2 million people, including 400,000 (about 33%) Khmers, who is the 2nd biggest ethnic community in Soc Trang and is the 5th biggest ethnic community in Vietnam. Like Tra Vinh, there are a lot of Khmer pagodas in Soc Trang as well.

All Things you need to know before travelling to Soc Trang Vietnam

1. Khleang Pagoda. It was built in 1532. Add: Khom 5, ward 6, Soc Trang city, Soc Trang province. Khleang Pagoda is locally known as the oldest religious site in Soc Trang. Inside the pagoda is where to find priceless Buddhist teachings. One exciting thing behind the place is that it used to be built from wood, leaves, and bamboo.

2. Bat Pagoda. It was built in 1569. Add: Ward 3, Soc Trang City. Bat Pagoda is the symbol of Khmer architecture. There are countless bats living and nesting in the backyard; they feed on fruits at night and sleep in daylight, so you can see them hanging (sleeping) on trees when visiting Bat Pagoda. The monks at this pagoda believe that this place is a very peaceful place, therefore the bats come to stay.

3. Khmer Museum. Add: 53, Ton Duc Thang str, ward 6, Soc Trang City. It is opposite Khleang Pagoda. It is in the typical architecture of the Khmer pagoda.  More compellingly, what to see inside this building is a series of artifacts which represent the spiritual life as well as the daily life of the Khmer community. Also, there are some interesting exhibits, e.g. musical instruments and costumes of the Khmer people.

4. Nga Nam Floating market. Add: Nga Nam town, Thanh Tri district, Soc Trang province. It is 230 kms away in 5 hours driving by private car transfers from Ho Chi Minh city. It is around 55 kms from the center of Soc Trang city. (And it is around 60 kms from Cai Rang Floating market).

Nga Nam is not the largest floating market in the Mekong Delta, but it deserves a visit. In other words, your trip to Soc Trang won’t be complete if Nga Nam Floating Market is missed out.

makes it special and draws many visitors is that it is the convergent point of five rivers, comprising Ca Mau, Phung Hiep, Vinh Quoi, Thanh Tri, and Long My). The best way to witness the most hustling prospect of the market is to come there early in the morning. You can find lots of things, such as vegetables, fresh fruits, meat, etc.

5. Tan Long Stork Garden. Add: Tan Binh hamlet, Long Binh Commune, Nga Nam District, Soc Trang province. It is 233 kms away in 5 hours driving by private car transfers from Ho Chi Minh city.

It is around 50 kms from the center of Soc Trang city. Tan Long Stork Garden of this province is allegedly home to rare species of stork. The best time to get a great view of white flocks of storks is at sunrise or sunset when they fly to feed or fly back.

6. Water & Rice festival of Soc Trang

Oc Om Boc, the annual Water Festival of the Khmer people, will this year coincide with the Vietnam Rice Festival in Soc Trang Province, home to a large community of the ethnic minority group.

The nation’s second Rice Festival will take place in the Mekong Delta province on November 8-11 this year to glorify the commodity, which is the lifeblood of the nation.

Oc Om Boc, the most important annual event of the ethnic minority group, is dedicated to the moon and organized in the province every year on the fifteenth day of the tenth lunar month.
