  1. We did the coconut candy factory tour at the Mekong delta. The ride alone to the factory itself was the quite the experience! I was always worried that the boat would crap out because they use extremely small boat motors to transfer you… I wouldn’t want to be stuck in that green water. =P

    1. We’ve had a South East Asian stranding, but it only lasted for 45 minutes while the crew pretty much disassembled the engine then put it back together with the help of another boat’s crew. I get the feeling it’s pretty standard!

    2. Our boat did lose its ability to move on more than one occasion… we were safer on the rowing boat I think! in fact most transportation in Vietnam did have a somewhat rustic feel to it, whether a mini bus, bike or boat…. the trains did seem a little more robust!
