Day 10

20

In the morning we visited again the floating market of the village and making rice cracker and coconut candy in the family factory. All of them made the same way for candy and cracker. Then we visited the village of Mekong delta, seeing the Murkiest Chinese historic old house of 1838 and the OL Christian Church. Then we went back to the cruise for lunch. Along the upstream, I saw many big boats and Z crafts in Mekong, carrying sand from the under river. I felt amazing and watched all boats running every five minutes in Mekong River. I heard about that the Hochimin city needed a lot of sand for construction and they also exported white sand to Singapore.

They had got the profits from the river sand which also supported a great help to the Vietnamese.

 

1. There was no sand bank the whole year and the strong current in Mekong.

2. The Vietnamese got $ a year from sand export.

In the river every boats was very busy by dipping and carrying sand. Both riversides have some big brick factories.

All are pointed at good economics in Vietnam and they also need the sand and bricks urgently for the construction. We took a rest and slept in a small town kais bee.
