    Mekong River

    April 23 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 35 °C

    Our boat trip took us cruising pass four beautiful islands named Dragon, Unicorn, Phoenix & Tortoise islands.
    We had a stop over at an island where we went walking in the village paths to see orchards, had some tropical fruits, sat and enjoyed Vietnamese folk music performed by the local people. We experienced traveling on a small rowing sampan through water coconut canal. A short stop over to visit a family business and bee-keeping farm where we enjoyed honey tea and coconut candy workshop which is popular in Mekong delta.Read more

    Mekong Delta

    April 4, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    After a 6.30am wake up and a bumpy bus drive, we arrived at one of the sections of the Mekong Delta.

    Our first trip out on the boat was to an island were we had a row boat tour through the canopied water. It was so beautiful and was typically Vietnamese, with all of us wearing pointed hats. We then stopped at another part of the island where we tried a home made honey which is known for its many health benefits and was very yummy!

    Lurking around, they also had a python which I got to hold, safe to say it was a little daunting but felt it had to be done. By the end it had wrapped its tail around my leg, some might say it would want me as its prey however I reckon it just wanted a friend and a nice hug.

    Following on we left to go to another island where we ate a typical Vietnamese lunch, consisting of rice, beans, pork and spring rolls. However, the menu of this restaurant was questionable, including meals with crocodile and other appetising animals. We also spectated coconut candy being made which was really delicious. The speed in which the ladies finished the packaging at the end of the process felt like the motion was being fast forward as they went so fast.

    In pools around the complex they had a huge one full of crocodiles. There were so many I couldn't believe my eyes and were so still they didn't even appear alive. However, when it came to their feeding time you gathered they were very much alive.

    We then headed back to the mainland and onto the bus which would take us to Can Tho were we would stay the night. We wondered round the town and grabbed a bite to eat, the town being significantly less busy than Ho Chi Minh. With an early morning in store for the floating markets, it was straight to bed.

    Bootstour auf dem Mekong Delta River

    February 19 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Es ist eine sehr schöne Erfahrung gewesen einen schwimmenden Markt zu sehen. Du fährst einfach mit dem Boot an die Stände und kannst von deinem Boot aus Früchte, oder Fisch (alles mögliche) kaufen. Aber man kann auch auf die Boote der Verkäufer gehen und in Ruhe schauen was man kaufen will.

    Étterem az Isten háta mögött

    January 16, 2015 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    A tura talan legabszurdabb resze meg hatra volt, mikor is "lovas"kocsira pattantunk, amivel elszallitottak minket a helyi etterembe, ahol az ebedet kaptuk. Szegeny lovak vagy inkabb oszverek alig birtak kapkodni a kis patajukat a szar uton. En elegge sajnaltam oket, uh orultem amikor vegre megerkeztunk. Eleg szimpla ebedet szolgaltak fel egy ketes minosegu etteremben. Mondjuk ez engem nem erintett, jol elvoltam a fott rizzsel, amit szojaszosszal bolonditottam meg. Bator utazok rendelhettek olyan kulonlegessegeket, mint sult kigyo, mokus, elefant ful hal, krokodil, iguana, teknos... Hat nem guszta?
    A "kiados" ebed utan leheveredtunk a fuggoagyakba, ami itt Azsiaban eleg elterjedt, gyakorlatilag egesz nap ebben hesszelnek.

    Day one on the Mekong Delta

    January 14, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    Rich experience, so glad we are here!

    My heart bleed for the poor people here. But as our tour guide said "People here are poor but happy. People in the city has more strong brain".

    Its just lucky if you were born into a life of privilege, nothing to do with "strong brains" in my opinion.

    Heal the world

    January 14, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    The lyrics of the Michael Jackson song starts with the line: "Heal the world". I feel like no one in Vietnam has ever heard this song or they miss heard it as "Kill the world".

    It's absolutely shocking how little they care about the environment here. The Mekong river is so badly polluted that I think the damage is permanent.

    I saw one of the boat drivers take out his last cigaret from a packet and just nonchalantly tossed the empty pack in the river. Everywhere we went garbage were floating on the river. At some point in the tour we took a small boat up a smaller leg of the river and a couple of the boats around us had to stop to take out plastic bags tangled around the boats engine. You reap what you sow I guess.

    The worst thing is the river is their livelihood and they just don't care. Ironically I actually found a "save the world" sign that have seen better days.

    The Jahan

    September 8, 2018 in Vietnam ⋅ 🌧 27 °C

    The boat is lovely only 17 guests and 41 crew the guest to staff ratio is excellent everywhere you turn staff are happy to assist, my kind of holiday.

    Once on board we where given a brief explanation of safety and what to expect on the cruise and then we were taken to our room which was very nice.

    At the orientation on board it was mentioned the possiblity of upgrades options so John negotiated an upgrade. Both rooms are lovely but the upgrade is a larger room and on the main floor.

    Once unpacked we had some lunch and then sat on the pool deck and chatted with a couple from Newcastle.

    Now 6.30 so time to find out about the excursions tomorrow, then dinner, straight after dinner a doumentary on Ho Chi Minh himself, it was very interesting learning about his life.

    After the movie we went to the bar for a drink and guess what no one but us there certainy no party animals on this cruise.

    Teil #1 unserer Mekong Delta Tour

    March 24, 2018 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    Heute hat unser Wecker schon um 6:30 Uhr geklingelt, weil wir sehr früh zum Mekong Delta gefahren sind. Dort haben wir einen tollen Tag mit vielen Eindrücken verbracht. Unser Guide und unser Fahrer haben sich als Tiger und Beer vorgestellt, zusammen Tiger 🍺 das rasante und aggressive Fahren unseres Fahrers war meist genauso interessant und aufregend, wie die Tour selbst.
    Als die Tour zu Ende war, wurden wir in unser Hotel gebracht. Das Hotel, das in der Tour dabei war, war nur leider gar nicht nach unserem Geschmack.
    Deshalb suchten wir uns kurzfristig ein nettes und sauberes 4€-Hostel und legten dort unsere Sachen ab.
    Ausgehungert vom Tag suchten wir in Cân Tho etwas zu Essen und entschieden uns dann kurzerhand für Sushi. Bei 3€p.P mit Getränk sind wir Beide satt geworden und lecker war es auch!
    Jetzt geht‘s in’s Bett - Morgen ist Pick-Up um 6:10 Uhr für den zweiten Tag Mekong Delta 🛶
