Today we visited our first town in Vietnam.
Virtually untouched by tourism, Tan Chau, with its slipper and rattan mat making factories, was a hive of activity.
Rickshaws were provided for all and proved a most comfortable way to see the local sights (pulled rickshaws have been replaced by cycle and motorbike variations, though the term “rickshaw” commonly applies).
Transferring to motorboats, we cruised along narrow water channels, visited floating fish farms and journeyed down tributaries to see houses on stilts, leaning precariously against each other.
Late afternoon, we cruised down stream to Sa Dec, arriving in the early evening. We moored here overnight and were entertained by our resident pianist and a special Mekong folklore performance.
