Mekong Delta Part I

Leave a comment
Asia, Uncategorized, Vietnam

After I finally managed to book a Mekong Delta tour (I chose the cheapest that I could find, so I was pretty scared of what’s the catch).
I packed up my shit and left Saigon. (The truth is, I should’ve just left my shit in Saigon and take the most important stuff, but yet again … I’m still learning … )
I had 2 days to spend around Mekong Delta, which was at the top of my lists to do in Vietnam! (I just saw some beautiful pictures in one of the guides and kinda HAD TO go ; ))
Anyway, it’s south of Vietnam, where the Mekong river divides in many small ones, which created a region full of farming, floating markets and lots of crafts.

I’m not sure if there is much to say about it, as I’ll just upload the pictures and maybe write about them.

DSC_0251On one of the stop I’ve gotten to find out about all the sweet things you can do out of a coconut!!

I am a sucker for greens and jungle i general!
The palm trees get me excited !
So I’m sorry if at some point anybody will get bored of that !

Also I found this little cemetery in the middle of this very Mekong jungle.
At one of the graves, somebody left money and put  stone over it, so it won’t fly away.
I suppose it’s for luck (?)

You know, when sometimes you see a picture in a guide or online,
and you just imagine this place and HAVE TO go there and do it?
The next thing was this for me.
I saw a picture of those long boats in a guide and instantly decided I want and I will do it!
It was almost as beautiful as in the book, but maybe a little more crowded,
but well … you can’t have it all ; )
