Mekong River and the Python | Vietnam
The beautiful voice from the Mekong Idol singers and a bunch of fruit that was served during the tour was a great perk me up in the early morning of my trip to Mekong River. After listening to some songs, of course in Vietnamese language and then one song in English was present to us. We trek along the forested area awaiting our sampan/wooden boat to take us to a coconut candy factory.
We got onto a big boat and headed towards Vinh Trang Pagoda with a stop over somewhere at the river coast for lunch. It was really a busy river! There was a lot of things going on, long ships? carrying stones and sands and kids bathing in the river. Truly amazing. This river is such an important part of their lives in not just transporting goods within the country but those along the mekong river and out to the rest of the world exporting resources.
