|Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam|
The floating markets in the Mekong Delta are authentic and lively. Local people trade and bargain vigorously in this fascinating and aesthetic chaos. You will get off the boat onto an island to visit a pop-rice making family, a local farmer’s house, and orchard and bonsai garden. Lunch is served at a local house on one of the Islands. Then you will continue with the boat to Vinh Long, a prosperous city in the Mekong Delta and drive back to Ho Chi Minh City, passing the newly constructed My Thuan Suspension Bridge.
