I would like to reintroduce Ho Chi Minh for wanting to do the Mekong River tour again. Tourist bus, four seater boat, snake, bee, 20 seater boat, lunch, same boat, bus, big statue of Buddha. Each one was long and fulfilling. I got caught and regret that there were only a few photos taken during the cruise. Even with a similar view from the ship, you will have 30 photos taken, that precious sensation will revive.
