Part II: Mekong Delta

Our first stop is the handicraft village. We saw how rice paper is made and we sampled some of these and other local delicacies with tea before moving on.



Back in the boat, we drifted along the river and then we docked in at a local restaurant named Tourist Ba Hung for our Vietnamese set meal lunch.

We had a little getting-to-know you conversations with our fellow tourists - a Japanese and two Aussie guys. After we finished eating, hb had a grand time chillin' in the hammock.

Cycling is another option and a great way to enjoy the quiet country lanes and see the villagers at work in rice fields.

Then we sailed again and stopped at An Bihn, a small candy house factory. We observed the local coconut candy production process. We tasted, sampled a little of everything that was offered to us.


Later on, we stopped in Vinh Long for our bus back to Ho Chi Minh City. The rain poured down pounding so hard and there was almost zero visibility. The ride seemed like an endless journey, it took us a 4-½ hours travel. It was a very long and tiring trip.

Our Mekong tour was a bit of a disappointment, probably because of my high expectations.
