Following the course of the Mekong from Chau Doc upstream, 5 km north of Chau Doc, you will arrive at Da Phuoc village, also called Muong Cha.
The Cham in An Giang Province, who are mainly Moslim, are called by many names such as Cha, Cha Va, Cha Va Ku, Chiem Thanh, Gia Va, Ma Lai, Khmer Islam, or Champa. Cham women often put on conical hats when they go to Chau Doc market, to ‘blend in’. The scarfs they normally wear are made of the fabrics they weave during the dry season under their stilt house, because during the rainy season the water levels are too high. When you visit the village you can see the women busy weaving and you can buy the woven brocade products, like scarves and sarongs. To get there you have to go upstream from Chau Doc. You arrive at the village after crossing a 500 metres long wooden bridge. At the end of the bridge there are two Cham-style boats, and on the bank of the Da Phuoc River are Cham houses on stilts. Masjid Al Ehsan Mosque and Masjid Jamius Sunnah are located in this village
