Ha Tien Overview
Ha Tien is a town lies next to Cambodian border, which has nice, beautiful beaches and landscapes. Although it is quite a famous destination to tourists if they want to travel overland to Phu Quoc island and Cambodia, it does not have too many tourists due to its remoteness. So if you want to spend time in some places that are not touristy and nice, then Ha Tien is an ideal choice.
There are no direct bus from Saigon to Ha Tien. You must first go to Rach Gia or Chau Doc, and then take another bus to Ha Tien.
From Cambodia (Kampot, Kep, Kampong Trach), you can hire a motorbike taxi to bring you to Ha Tien
Ha Tien is "Special Economic Zone" so you can stay there visa-free for up to 15 days. It is possible to travel to Phu Quoc island as well without a visa if you're lucky or with a small bribe. You must have visa if you want to travel elsewhere.
In Ha Tien you can visit Mui Nai beach (very quiet and clean water), Thach Dong pagoda (a pagoda built inside a mountain with an interesting legend about a peasant that saved a princess from a huge eagle), Da Dung moutain (a group of large caves), Ha Tien town (with a night view of To Chau bridge), Mac Cuu tomb (Mac Cuu was the founder of Ha Tien town), Phu Tu islet, Hon Chong beach, Trem island,...
Overall, Ha Tien is relatively small, quiet and beautiful, perfect for you to relax and enjoy local's life without being stuck among western tourists.
