Mekong Delta in the south of Vietnam is close to Saigon and you can reach it from Saigon within 2 hours.
The easiest way to discover Mekong delta with its amazing canals is a boat trip. It takes some time, but you should take the time, enjoy the silence and relax at 42°C 😉
There are many things to explore in Mekong Delta; the canals for sure, but also the swimming market, coconut industry, fruit fields and many friendly people. Enjoy…
That’s the last day in Vietnam – so we are heading back to Thailand and finally to Frankfurt.
After a short flight from Da Nang to Saigon, we arrived in the south of Vietnam. Saigon is absolutely where the heart of southern Vietnam beats – day and night. All the life during day and night is on the street; people sitting, walking, relaxing, talking, redaing, eating and sleeping.
That’s typical for Vietnam; people meeting on the street, playing with each other, talking and smoking.
In Saigon or Ho-Chi-Minh you will find European-style and American-style buildings as this comes from colonial times in the past.
From Saigon it’s very easy to go down to Mekong Delta as this is only 2 hours by car. You will find some pics of that in the next blog post.
If you ever plan to travel to Vietnam, take at least two days in Hoi An. I have seen a lot of citys in Asia, but Hoi An is one of the nicest towns I have ever seen; it is comparable to Suzhou in China.
As Hanoi is very busy and dirty, Saigon a very big town as well, Hoi An is calm, quiet, clean and very friendly people. You will find a lot of small shops, cafés, tailors and restaurants.
If you ever plan to visit Vietnam, come to Hoi An and stay there for a couple of days.
From Hoi An we drove back to Da Nang and flew down to Saigon and Mekong Delta.
