Location: Mekong Delta, Vietnam

MapThe Mekong Delta Experience!
we spent the last 3 days on transport with short stops along the mekong. we saw some interesting things and people! but the tour was very touristy!

we went on many boat rides along the mekong and up many tributaries - seeing how the people live off the land and river. went to a crocodile farm, with 2 random sun bears in a cage - they export most of the crocodiles ALIVE to china for meat and leather.

our 3rd day we got on a small boat at 730am and made our way to Phnom Phen - we got to the border at 12pm and left again at 130pm, getting onto a boat we might recognise as a refugee boat. 4 hours later we swapped to a bus and made it to PP fpr 730pm.

We would not recommend this tour to anyone and arent too keen to get on a boat anytime soon!
