I have lived in Soc Trang for 15 years and this is a very special province to me. Someday, if you want to go to somewhere interesting, maybe Soc Trang is one of the best choices for you. This province lies next to the Mekong river with the area is about 3312 km2 and approximately 1,2 million inhabitants. When you go to Soc Trang, you can not help visiting pagodas, especially Bat pagoda. This is a very special pagoda with beautiful Khmer architecture and hundreds of bat in the pagoda backyard. Shoppers can go to Nga Nam floating market or night market to buy good specialities. If pagodas and markets are for the adults, there are also some interesting places for the youth such as My Phuoc ecotourism area, Binh An park or Fresh Water lake. Beside entertaining and shopping, tourists can also enjoy many special kinds of food in Soc Trang. “pia” cake, “bun mam” and “banh cong” are some good suggestions. Moreover, many festivals and exciting activities are held in Soc Trang every year. For example: Ooc-om-boc festival with Ngo boat race, Chon-chnam-thmay with wind lanterns… And if you go to Soc Trang at the beginning of this November, you can jion a very special festival-rice festival-an important and meaningful event to Soc Trang people. Despite of all these, Soc Trang is not always a busy place. The residents here live a peaceful life. They are warm, friendly and always ready to help other people, especialoly tourists. In summary, although Soc Trang is not my real hometown, I still love it very much and in my opinion, it is the best place to live in
