Vietnam Part 4 – Mekong Delta Tour (Part 1 of 2)

On our second day in Vietnam we booked a tour to the Mekong Delta through our hotel. It was in an air-conditioned van and included lunch for about $15 USD. We rode the van for about two 1/2 hours to our destination. We came across the normal sights of Vietnam traffic with tons of motorcycles! Our first stop was at the bee farm and then we were entertained by some local musicians and singers while we enjoyed our fruit.

Some trainees I assume running holding guns. I hope they aren’t loaded.
