Day Trip to Mekong Delta
My wife and I spent roughly 10 days in Southern Vietnam exploring Ho Chi Minh and Phan Thiết. Our schedule was tight so we could only do a day tour of the Mekong Delta which meant we would miss the peak action of the floating market in Cai Be. Nevertheless it was a great tour and gave us a brief glimpse of the daily life for locals. I would highly recommend visiting the area if you are spending any time in HCM.
While cycling in the back roads (really paths) in the Mekong Delta, I came across this couple tending to their vegetable garden. We stopped to chat. Cycling puts you in touch with the local people. It brings you places you would never see otherwise.
