A wonderful Cruise to Mekong Delta!


Last Thursday, I had a wonderful one-day cruise to Mekong Delta with my family. We had chance to learn many interesting things about the life and friendly people who are living here.
Most of people living in Mekong Delta use boats as a main vehicle to transport from one place to the other places, boats can be used for putting fruits and boats are also used as a house to live. That is the reason why all visitors who once have visited this place can have chance to have a boat-journey. Last Thursday, we also went by boat. Here are some pictures of boats we met on our cruise:

As you can see, houses here are specially designed so that they can stand still in river:

The boat is decorated with two eyes with the hope that it will not get any accident during its journeys:

This boat is used as a house. Boats also have registered number as other vehicles in Vietnam.

This is a house that I visited, a very nice and relaxing place to have a meal when you are in the heart of the Mekong Delta in Vietnam:

 Watch out! That is one of the ovens and it is hot, notice the rice husks used to keep the fire alive.

 This the roof or chimney of one of the ovens, very mystical to see the light pour down the opening.

We also had chance to visit a family that makes rice paper- the cover of Nem- traditional dish of Vietnam.

This woman is waiting for the rice paper to be cooked before taking it out and pouring the mixture of rice flour and water to make a new rice paper.

She carefully takes the rice paper out of the stove.

And this is a family that makes coconut sweet:

These photos show how they separate rice from the rice husks and then heat the rice to make it pop and become suitable for making sweet rice bars, very crunchy and delicious!

I hope you enjoyed these photos of my trip to the Mekong Delta, if you live in the south of Vietnam like in Ho Chi Minh City, you can do this in a one-day tour.
