Although its about a three hour drive from Saigon, A boat ride thru the Delta was a nice change of pace from the hustle of the city. Stopped at one island (Dinh-Oa-Phuoc, if I remember correctly) to see the making of candy and rice cakes. Then onto Dong Phu to see a traditional house and listen to traditiomal singing. But the cruise thru the mangroves ,and seeing the way the people live was the best part of the trip .Passed under many pedestrian bridges (monkey bridges, now made of concrete instead of bamboo)
