Today we will travel to the Mekong Delta, one of the most beautiful landscapes in all of Vietnam. The Mekong Delta is often referred to as the“rice bowl” of Vietnam because the area produces more than half of  Vietnam’s rice, thanks to good soil, a great water supply and fantastic weather. We will take a boat ride and explore the Mekong Delta’s canals, orchards, local communities and their life.

There will be a meeting in to morning, where you are briefed on the project that you will be undertaking during your stay. The projects are determined based on the current needs of the community and may include building houses, bridge building, cementing roads, or setting up a library.

You will work with the support of the local community. There will be master builders on hand to support everyday, with regular breaks taken.

Ho Chi Minh City, the most robust city in Vietnam, is an important centre of business, arts and entertainment. It is a city where thousands of motorcycles, rickshaws, cars and buses share the same street and sidewalks are turned into badminton courts.
