COOKING

Come enjoy the different culture and tastes of Vietnam. The Mekong Delta Region is world famous for its abundance of fresh fish, snails, shrimp, and a large variety of fruits and vegetables. The local Vietnamese people are always happy to guide you on how to cook and create many authentic and regional dishes.

FISHING

In the Mekong Delta Region people use unique and unusual methods of fishing. One fun type of fishing that you can experience firsthand is Is “fish slapping.”  Wade into the narrow and shallow mud filled water ditch where fish must pass thru. Set up your net and slap the water driving the fish into the net. You can also try your hand at bamboo basket fishing or even catching fish by hand. The local people will help guide you thru each unique and exciting fishing adventure. Afterwards, you can enjoy cooking and eating your fresh catch!
