We started off from the hotel at about 8:00 am and took the bus to the port area. From there we boarded a motor boat where we got to the island. We rode small boats with paddles and walked in narrow waterways surrounded by thick trees. The tour guide told us that these narrow passages were used during the war to transport the supplies. The soldiers move as the high trees surrounding them provide the required cover so that the planes do not reveal them. We then arrived at a small popular market where the people make soap, oils and some preparations from the coconut. Also sold in the market are some local products such as honey and wood carvings and then moved to another place - also by boat - to a cafe amidst a forest of trees where some teams of girls The folkloric songs then we moved to another place for lunch and it was a charming place we enjoyed so much. I was accompanied by a Vietnamese friend, a young couple from America, a family of Wales, a man and a woman I thought of Australia. The most important six hours was filled with beautiful views and exploring places in the heart of the Vietnamese countryside.
