Ho Chi Minh - Mekong Delta Part 3 - Fruit Tasting


There were many different types of fruits displayed on a tree. At first glance, I thought the tree produced so many colourful fruits.

Not sure what fruits they above are, but they are plentiful along the Mekong River.
We were treated to some fruits and they tasted so juicy and sweet.

Halfway through eating our fruits, there was this mother with her daughters. They sang some local folk songs and chinese songs. After performing, some little children would gather round us and ask for tips for their performance.

According to our guide, the people living in the village had more daughters than sons and it could be because of the Mekong River that they drank.
