As you leave the city behind your course is set for an experience that goes beyond looking, beyond your imagination. Only when setting eyes on the Mekong Delta you will truly understand the meaning it has and the nerve it is for the local community. And only when you stretch out your arm and catch a crisp, green leave from the dense vegetation you will truly appreciate its greatness. Yet, this is only the beginning. As you are welcomed by your local host you will leave the tourist trail behind and be one with life in your local village. Fetching a four-string bucket you take your first step into the rice fields and you will soon learn to appreciate the work that goes into farming this essential grain. Catch a crap or a fish and maybe even give life to new harvest when seeding vegetables. After a good day's work you may fine-tune your skills in the Vietnamese cuisine before you lean back with your eyes closed, a cup of rice wine in hand and the sound of traditional folks songs in your ears as the night takes over and experience slowly begin to sink in.
