Cai Mon Church in Ben Tre Province belongs to Cai Mon Parish – one of the oldest parishes in the Mekong Delta founded by a French Catholic priest named Gernot in 1872.
Beside a busy canal near Cai Mon Bridge, the church has large grounds filled with potted bonsai and trees.
At twilight, when the bell tolls in the high tower it resounds across the interlacing canals and emerald orchard canopies, leaving visitors with a unique memory of the delta province.
After visiting the church, visitors should explore the nearby flower farms to admire beautiful flowers and discover the local culture. By Dang Hoang Tham in Ben Tre
