Sandwiching a trip to Vietnam between Thailand and Cambodia, my wife and I didn’t have much time to explore the country. First off, we had to make a decision of regions (North or South), and then decide where to go from there.
Landing in Ho Chi Minh City, we called a local guide service to inquire about getting a Mekong Delta tour for the next day. It was a lot of driving, but completely worth it.
Spending a day on the water is a fantastic way to enjoy the scenery, and being able to motor back into the remote regions was enjoyable. Throughout the day, we saw a number of people fishing; from diving underwater (sans mask or other gear) to throwing nets off the bow of a boat.
