Unfortunately this trip I snot worth the time invested. It was almost 10 hours and almost 5 of that is in the van getting there. The brick factory tour was a quick walk around a factory and you could see some clay pottery that had been made previously flower pots saw a working kiln. Then a 40 - 50 min boat ride up a canal without much to see. Then a nice lunch, the boat back across the Mekong Delta to the floating market. There were about 6 - 7 boats that made up the market and we went past them in our small boat, turned around and back to the jetty to get in the van for the return trip. Our tour guide did not share a lot of information and in fact slept most of the boat trip.
This trip was the highlight of our stay in HCMC. Our guide Lam was a lovely and very interesting lady which made the day fun. The private tour suit our family as Lam could cater to our personal needs and she did that very well. We were very comfortable throughout the trip whether is in the long car drive or on the boat .
Wir waren ca. 2 Stunden eher zurück als in unserer Beschreibung. Der in der Beschreibung so toll beworbene schwimmenden Markt waren in der Realität nur 3-4 Boote, welche Kartoffeln verkauften. Laut unserem Guide ist der Markt nur am frühen Morgen.
Vinh Long Town haben wir nur aus dem Auto heraus gesehen.
Was an enjoyable experience sailing along the Mekong River and visiting the Candy Factory and Brick Factory. Had first hand experience on the floating markets which too was quite interesting. Thank you.
