    Day 17 Can Tho

    October 18, 2018 in Vietnam ⋅ 🌧 29 °C

    The alarm went off at 5:30 AM because we have booked a Mekong Delta Tour with our guide Linh. First we drove with scooters about 30 minutes to a place where we could enter a boat. Our group was completed by two German couples. We visited a local floating market where farmers and merchants are doing B2B deals. After a while we stopped and had breakfast. Linh told a lot about how the Vietnamese live and about the area. We continued and went through a local market on land with lots of meat, fruits and even snakes. Back on the boat we saw fruit plantations and where pepper comes from. We tried a lot of different fruits during the tour. Then we cruised through the most beautiful area - the "paradise". At around noon the tour was finished and we said goodbye to Linh and her parents. We hopped on a bus to Rach Gia and as we had arrived we went into the town to have dinner. We walked for quite a while and then we found a good grill. Once we finished the food we got invited again by a few locals. They could barely speak English and Google Translator was not a great help. After a some beers we went on to a karaoke place where we spent one hour with this popular Asian activity. Then our new Vietnamese friends drove us back to the hostel by scooters.Read more
