As specified earlier, Long Xuyen is closer to the border of Cambodia. It is approximately 1,950 km to the south of Hanoi, 189 km away from Ho Chi Minh City and 45 km from the border of Cambodia.
The best way to get to Long Xuyen is by bus. It takes five hours from Ho Chi Minh City or 1.5 hours from Can Tho.
Long Xuyen is not that big a city like its neighbouring cities which makes it walkable. Similar to other cities of Vietnam, there are a number of xe-om motorcycle chauffeurs that can be opted for. Also, bicycles with carts are a great idea for enjoying the city ride economically and sustainably.
