The boat sailed across the Mekong Delta where we saw four islands namely Dragon, Unicorn, Tortoise and Phoenix. We also spotted fishing village and pagoda.
We stopped by a coconut candy factory located in the jungle. Here we found local people making sweets.
The coconut was grated and the milk extracted.
The milk was boiled for hours.
When the mixture thickened, it was mixed with pandan extract and left to set. After it had set, it was cut in squares and packed.
As we went deep into the woods, we found this woman making rice paper crepe. We stopped for a few minutes to savor her earthly delights
We crossed the bridge and hopped on horse-drawn carriage ride to see our next destination.
Villagers welcomed us with fresh fruit and Vietnamese tea. After too much walking, it was good to finally get some rest,food and entertainment.
The highlight of the trip was rowing our boat through the canals.
Row, row, row, your boat gently down the canal.
I wasn't doing my part.
After my photo shoot, we headed out to a restaurant for lunch.
With our kababayans.
