A day spent on the Mekong River outside of HCMC Vietnam brought us to floating markets and numerous "factory" stops along the way. Among other things, we saw brick making, "popcorn" treats and this home where rice wrappers were made and dried on bamboo racks. Anyone interested in small businesses run in family compounds should arrange a tour of the area near Can Tho or Vinh Long. This is a wonderful day trip out of Saigon and gets you a view of more rural life while still having the luxury of Saigon accomodations. We have used the Saigon Morin hotel and recommend it.
