    So after crocs perilous journey below ground it was time to change campgrounds. We could only get two days at the Rex( shame) so we had to pack the swag and head off to the Pullman Saigon Centre.

    Bedroom



    View from the bathroom.



    Next we booked a trip to the Mekong Delta ( fringes of really) via a trip down the Saigon river. We booked this and some other trips with a company called Les Rives. I can highly recommend them as they provided good guides, good food and plenty of cold drinks. We booked them through Viator but I'm sure they could be reached direct.

    Travelling down river there is a bit of construction going on.





    As in most cities the rivers running through supply life's blood.

    Fish sauce.



    Ferry in the delta.



    Door to door shopping centre.



    We stopped at a couple of local markets for a peek.

    Would you like flies with that sir.



    This old dear was preparing her morning betel nut.



    Housing on the river can be pretty precarious at times.





    Some locals invited us in for a visit, a drink and a feed.

    Home on the delta.







    The local shebeen where local flavoured whiskey is consumed in great amounts.



    And a feed of elephant ear fish.



    And to finish the trip, name this bike

    So apart from some fartarsing around the next day this was the end of the trip for the Dragonlady and the ever suffering crocman.

    Thank you for following our journey.

    Until the next time.(looks like Langkawi and Koh lipe in March)

    Hi crocman, thanks for the pics and stories. I found my pic with Uncle Ho from 2005; seems like they changed the statue over the years. Cheers!

    That's quite interesting Katie, I've never seen a statue that has been changed before. You occasionally see them pulled down with a regime change.

    I wonder what the the reason was. Anyway old uncle Ho is still pulling them in.
