There may not be any major attractions in the small Mekong delta town of Hà Tiên. But it is situated in some nice countryside. One of my favorite activities is just riding my motorbike around the countryside. So I spent part of a day doing just that.
There was no need to rush. So first I enjoyed a nice breakfast and coffee in the peaceful downtown. Then I headed southwest towards the ocean. The road followed the shore, and was quite beautiful.
I eventually came to Mũi Nai, a big beach resort that charged a small admission fee. It was a very local scene, with not a foreigner around. In fact, for a Saturday, there weren’t many Vietnamese around either. There were only a few groups lounging in the shade, singing karaoke on big speakers they brought.
I lounged for a bit, then headed back into the countryside. I headed back to the Cambodian border, and eventually came to the big limestone cliff with the cave temple, Thạch Động. It was worth a wonder for a few minutes, and had some views of the flat, green countryside.
I headed back to town for lunch. I had mostly exhausted Hà Tiên’s sightseeing opportunities. But it was nice to spend the afternoon relaxing in the peaceful cafes. Tomorrow I would travel to the island paradise of Phú Quốc.
