Cong picked us up right on time from the Beautiful Saigon 3 Hotel and whisked us off to our 2 day Mekong biking trip. Cong was exceptional as a guide – we asked about rice growing as we passed fields, and he stopped and showed us the individual rice plants and explained how they are harvested. His English was good and he continually stopped to show us fruits – we picked the ramboutan off the trees – it became our new favorite fruit. The biking was easy and so experiential because of the children yelling “hello” all through the two days ! We loved the home stay because we got to cook and enjoy sleeping under a mosquito net – but we only heard one mosquito – I thought we would be inundated with them and not have enough deet ! Not so. This was one of the best parts of our Southeast Asia excursion !
