It was a small group tour. We were picked up from our hotel and transferred to a speed boat. It took nearly two hours to reach Mekong delta. On our way we have stopovers at fruit orchards where honey bees are bred, rode a horse drawn carriage, saw pythons. We visited more farms where coconut Candys are made and tasted traditional Vietnamese cuisine. Our tour guide, Jenny, a young girl took great care of us. She made us understand the local culture and customs. At the end of the tour we all felt like a family.
