Route: Ho Chi Minh Mekong Tour
Hotel: Guy Hua Hotel, Ho Chi Minh
Today we went for a full-day Mekong Delta tour which cost us USD15/person.
Boarded the Mekong tour bus with Malaysian, Singapore and Brunei tourists. The journey to the Mekong River Pier took us about 2 hours. Stopped for 40 minutes for toilet break and shopping. Prices of goods in Vietnam were quite cheap.

Later rode on a horse-carriage and the sampan on the narrow stream among the diminishing Nipah trees. On the way back to the city, the bus stopped at an outlet selling telekong, materials and ready-made baju kurung.
Arrived in town just in time for dinner at one of the many Halal Restaurants on the street.
