mekong; ben tre island
we decided go on a Mekong Delta Trip! There were so many tour packages at Sinh tourist for travelling around Mekong. We have decided to go for a day trip down to My Tho & Ben Tre.
so on the day itself, we went to Sinh tourist where our trip starts. we had banh mi for breakfast on the streets before waiting for our bus to come. the tour agency was packed with tourist and buses.
we took a bus and travelled to a port! blessed with such a good and sunny weather~~
we took a boat from the port to the islands.
our first stop was Con Phung (phoenix island) where we saw how rice paper were made.
grinding the rice & water.
there were so many flavours of rice paper. here's kevin posing with a pandan flavoured one!
there were also alot of local crafts on sale.
after that, we headed for lunch. we had elephant fish wrapped in rice paper!
after lunch we explored around the area and took pictures!
this is one of the picture i took. a korean tourist trying to grab the straw hat which was blown away into the waters. at one time, there was also another straw hat which fell. so two men was struggling with the trying to get the straw hat. i even got a video down. it was such an exciting moment when the two men managed to save the straw hats!
