Monday Jan 18 My Tho in the Mekong Delta

Monday, January 18th, 2010

We bought a 3 day tour for $ 42.00 each that provides today’s tour to My Tho with a visit to a lacquer ware handcraft center, where the artist are practically all agent orange victims.
On arrival in My Tho we were ferried to three different islands in the river. I had actually done the same tour in 2006. Once more I let the pictures do the talking.
We are staying over night in Can Tho and will take a river boat to the Cambodian border at Chau Doc, overnight there and then continue by boat on the Mekong to Pnomh Penh.
The 42 dollars includes the transportation to Phnom Penh, the sight seeing and two night hotel and lunches.
There are several branches here of the Mekong and it is an extremely busy waterway. The rice and fish bowl of Vietnam.
