It was time to get on the boat again and this time on a smaller boat along the tributaries of Mekong. Lush palm trees and beautiful wooden boats will bring out the photographer in you, it is so calming and overwhelming and was one of the highlights of our time in the region. But the stomach was grumbling, and it was time for Food.
We had our lunch at … one of the popular riverside lunch places. Our meal was a total Vietnamese complete with Vietnamese spring rolls, Banh Xeo (Vietnamese savoury pancake), Fried rice, soup and a nice fried fish! There are vegetarian versions of most of the traditional items, and the food is scrumptious. The fried Fish still has me drooling, freshly rolled by our server into a Rice paper roll it was nothing like I ever tasted.
Our ferry took us back to the bay, but we certainly left a piece of our heart to the Mekong. The food, people and the local experiences that ever so overwhelmingly beautiful that I certainly will come back someday.
