  • In this video, I traveled to the Mekong Delta and took a trip through the Cai Rang Floating Market and tried to make some rice hammock with some true masters.

    great video. Next time, you can try taking a smaller boat (sampan), cheaper and more flexible for you to get closer to the boats in the middle of the floating market. :)

    There's a reason why it's called a star apple: Slice it crosswise then look at the fruit. You'll see a star in the middle of it.

    It's quite funny to me since he was travelling in southern vietnam but the background music is one famous piece of northern traditional music. But it goes well with the video anyway. This is my very first video of this youtuber but he already wins my heart with that elegant choice of soundtrack. Nice.

    These people are so focused on making a living but at the same time they seem so happy. This is one of my favorite videos you've done. I'd LOVE to see more like this one. Gorgeous! I hope to visit Busan South Korea next year. My niece is there. I know it will spoil me. I will want to visit many more Asian countries. I subscribed to yoh fairly recently so I am still watching all your videos. They make me so hungry! I have to admit, I have a HUGE platonic crush on you!!
