A trip in the Mekong Delta

From Saigon we took a  two-day trip on the Mekong. Driving to Cai Be we boarded a motorized sampan for a cruise to the floating market and through narrow waterways overhung with dense vegetation. We spent the night at a home stay, in a house on stilts, sleeping on cots under mosquito nets.

Along the way we saw the lotus (national flower) blooming.

Founded in 1926 – a fusion of Buddhism, Taoism and Confusionism with elements of Christianity and Islam. Following five commandments, Cao Daoists must avoid killing living beings, high living and verbal deceit.
