Die Reise in das Mekongdelta war dank unseres Guide Thong sehr interessant. Eine der Höhepunkte war der schwimmende Markt von Cai Rang, der noch authentisch ist. Es sind an diesen 2 Tagen aber längere Fahrten mit dem Auto zu berücksichtigen, die Straßen sind gut. Bei der Rückkehr wurden wir in die Nähe des alten Hotel zurückgebracht, die neue Adresse in HCMC war dem Chauffeur nicht passend. Der Giude hat uns ein Grab-Taxi organisiert.
