  So, to kick off our first day of sightseeing and tourist activities in Vietnam we did the Chuong Dong Boat Tour down the Mekong River in My Tho.

 

  The first island we stopped at was Unicorn Island. There are souvenir traps all along the paths of the island but I knew I couldn’t be buying toys left and right on only the first day!

Our guide tooks us to a honeybee farm where there was a pavilion set up for some honey tasting. The lovely demonstrator sits us at a table and pours a bit of pure honey into little teacups, squeezes half a little Vietnamese lime and adds in some of the local Vietnamese tea.

With that we also get a side of some special candied ginger pearls.

The honey is super sweet and delicious, the splash of lime is the perfect agent to calm it down and give some tang, and the ginger pearls are a delight!
