Back in 2009, Vietnam was our first big trip overseas. I had heard nothing but good things about it and indeed, it did not disappoint.
We landed in Ho-Chi-Minh City and quickly headed south to embark on a 4 days cruise on the Mekong. Once in the very south of the Delta we took a boat to Phu Quoc island and spent a week there before heading back to Paris. I was enchanted by the sense of quiet and gracefulness everywhere we went: in the delicate foliage, on the printed pajamas of the ladies at the market or in the kindness of the people…Go there!
__________ The Mekong is definitely a big selling point. If, like us, you choose to take a boat to Phu Quoc, be sure to take a very big one. Those three hours on a rather small speedboat were a nightmare!
