    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

    Floating Markt

    January 22, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Nun geht es auf kleineren Kanälen zum kleineren schwimmenden Markt. Hier ist nicht weniger los, nur die Boote sind kleiner, aber auch hier floriert der Handel:!AiUv8teodO-roFBm1lOTYLWUCP3R
    Natürlich gibt es auch viele Touristenboote und so herrscht ein lustiges Gewimmel. Wir kaufen grüne Mango, die wir sogleich aufschneiden und an unsere Besatzung verteilen. Das Ding ist echt sauer, aber Quyen hat kleine rote Beeren dabei, die wir kauen und nach kurzer Zeit haben wir eine zuckersüße Mango - das ist Magie pur (oder doch irgendeine Droge? 😳). Jedenfalls werden wir von den umliegenden Bootsinsassen bewundert, wie wir diese saure Frucht genießen! Nach einiger Zeit ist der Zauber vorbei und schnell futtern wir die sauren Reste auf!
