Visiting Vietnam and The Mekong Delta.

Taking a self guided tour of Vietnam starting off at Hanoi and going south down the coast before travelling deep into the The Mekong Delta.

Vinh Trang Pagoda - a happy smiling Buddha Bordered by Cambodia, Laos and China, Vietnam (The Socialist Republic of Vietnam) is one of Indochina's most populated countries with a population of over 90 million - and seemingly everyone in the country owns a moped or motorbike. Although Vietnam is a communist country there is little obvious sign of military or governmental strict controls about where you can go too certainly as far as tourists are concerned etc. as can often be seen in for instance North Korea. On the contrary in Vietnam everybody and "everything" seemed as free and open as can be found in for example Cambodia or other "westernised" countries. The Vietnamese people were just simply friendly and helpful and always seemed happy to see us tourists wandering around even if we probably did at times get in the way. Vietnam is remakably easy to travel and tour around with good transport options and this makes touring the country a particularly good option for anyone thinking of taking a self-guided holiday there. And Vietnam really is a beautiful country - rivers, lakes, coastline, temples and just general scenery. The huge and extremely happy Buddha on the right was spotted at the beautiful Vinh Trang Pagoda which is located in the Mekong Delta town of My Tho.
