Travelogue: Vietnam Day 2 [ Mekong River ]


Hello sweeties..

Here my second day of trip to Vietnam..we go with tour luckily that this tour is among our family and it is kind of privacy for us..woohoo!!  we have a pack schedule that we have to follow in this tour..let me share about it one by one..and as I mention I will story about this trip according to the day and it is going to be a long post story with full of picture..and hope you guys enjoy reading my journey...

First thing woke up in the morning and take our breakfast and of course it is Halal food thats already provided in out tour package..get ready for our first visit to Vietnam....In the morning around 8AM [vietnam time] we get ready from out Hotel to visit Mekong River..

We were exposed to colorful outskirt life as well as picturesque rice fields along the journey..this journey took about 2 hours from our hotel to reach this place..The actual kilometre are not to far which in Malaysia we can reach to the place around 45min but at Vietnam their speed limit were to slow around 60k/hour to 70k/hour on the highway roads..that is the reason why it is take times to reach to the destination..huhuhuuu!

So, here we are..get ready to get in the boat at Mekong River..
wooapsss..pardon my tudung yahhh..

The first destination we stop at Thoi Son island..
In this island we visit honey bee-farm but to to up closeb and I were able to told this bees...

we taste the honey mix with some warm tea & bee pollen and we have some snacks like kerepek pisang..

After that, we go for 'cuci mata' at the market..
wahhh!! so many stuff selling here and there..

craft handbag and many more!!

TIPS: Just for an advice, their sell's person always going to capture you and sometime they event forced you to buy.. So, you have to make sure to talk strictly that you don't want it or other wise you will be trap !! hahahaa..just an experience what happen me..hahhahahaa..MIX FEELING !!

After that, we take a boat again to go to another station that is Coconut Candy Workshop
on the picture above is how they make the coconut candy

This is how the Coconut Candy after the packaging done..

TIPS: make sure you choose the fresh and new one or you will be end up like me buying kinda old one end up it is hard to chew!! Aaaarghhh..FRUSTRATING !! but if you eat it while it still fresh and hot very delicious..just in my honest opinion..HAHAA..

Then, we staright to taste Seasonal Fruits..Their traditional fruits..
Most of them just the same as fruits in Malaysia' papaya, watermelon, pineapple, mango and other but the special is maybe their dipping sauce a.k.a 'pencicah'  ..

enjoy traditional folk songs at local people house.

TIPS: here another tips is everything they do you have to give them a TIPS a.k.a MONEY..they normally do not do anything for free especailly when it come to tourist...they definitely want, be prepared.!

This girls is on firee!! hahahaa..when everyone ignore her..hahhaaa!!
AFRINAAA...the one and only little cousin..aigoooo...

Walk along the village to see the authentic life of the local and challenge your bargaining power at cottage handicraft shops.

An adventurous sampan ride in palm shading creeks will be the next experience of the riverside region..

Do I like lie a Vietnamese? kekekeee..

we're on the Mekong Canal

Fresh coconut drink were given..their coconut taste a little bit sweet..LOVEE!

 After that going back Ho Chi Minh for late halal Lunch at halal Mekong restaurant. Shopping at Ben Thanh market. Dinner at D'nyonya halal restaurant

Over all on the second day we had our journey to visit the Mekong River and get to know how their villagers looks experience for me when I got a chance to experience naik sampan on the Mekong Canal..hehee..

My journey will be countinue..............
