  • This pagoda deserves the pena visit is. I went with guide and believe it is essential to understand this culture so different. We visited it after making a stroll by the Mekong delta, by the Tien River in a traditional boat. They are for passengers and others to fishing or cargo. They differ by the sense of it look "eyes" that have painted to the front. In this area there are fish. We visited a farm of bees with their typical products and enjoy their sweets and their teas in Quoi are.

In all the sites find sale of those products typical that produce. Lead change. Very nice ride.
