Cobra liquor, SCAMS and bamboo clothes! 🇻🇳 Vietnam, Mekong River Delta Full Tour!


Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City. On my last day in Saigon, I decided to do a day trip and go see the Mekon Delta. I joined a tour group and they brought us in so many places, but in every place there was always a little scam behind. There was no point to go see the Bamboo Fiber Shop, it was just a pure scam in the hope we’d buy some of the bamboo clothes. Then we finally took a boat and we started crossing the river Mekong Delta. Arrived on an island, I had the chance to try snake liquor/cobra liquor that they say they use to cure themselves. The maximum cobra liquor shot allowed is 3 and I had 2. We also went to see how they produce candies from coconuts and then we had lunch somewhere. At lunch, there was another little scam: no water, nothing to drink unless you pay for it. Also on the boats, the women driving them demanded tips. The whole tour was full of scams/tips, but fortunately, the prices were not high. Therefore it was the perfect ending of this vacation in Vietnam.
You guys always ask for long videos, therefore I hope that this time I’ve satisfied you with the Mekong Delta full tour!

    You always ask for long videos and now you have it 🙂 To edit this one I practically had to take a day off from the job that lets me travel, therefore, please, if you'll enjoy it, like, comment and share it with your friends so that one day YouTube will become my full-time job!
    Thank you!

    Hi Michele, bringing you greetings from Canada. Do you mind telling me what's the name of this tour? It's too bad you didn't take a video of the lunch served to you. I've been waiting to see what kind of lunch was served with the tour. Anyway, how satisfied are you with the Royal Blue Hotel? Would you recommend it to a solo female traveller? Is the surrounding of this hotel safe to walk around? Please advise.

    They have some similar “scam “ sales stops in Thailand when you book a day trip , like when going to Koh Larn island for the day, the bus stops at a “ Unique” Pattaya honey factory ( on the fringe of Pattaya city) where the have bee hives & collect & bottle honey and make other honey based products, The make some interesting claims about how clean & unique their honey is.

    A thought about "scams": Of course there are true scams where people try to take your money for little or nothing in return or when you do not receive what was expected, advertised or promised. However, indigenous people selling their wares and crafts is not scamming, it's locals earning their living! I've lived in Central America for over 4 years, the last three at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala and I am appalled at how rude many tourists are – they gawk at the surroundings, photograph locals in their indigenous clothing and their crafts, and then feel they are being scammed when these people try to earn some income.

    Totally agree about the showroom/sales thing. I'd be much more inclined to buy if I saw the creation process!

    "did you eat all of the alligators?" thats so prejudice. Another note, don't put scam in the title if its actually not. Giving people samples to see if they may like it and possibly purcase is a form of marketing. 2 completely different things.

    Dude that’s not scam!! It’s business! They give you sample for free and if you like it you buy it or you aren’t forced to buy it?
    Seeing many ads in your video is scam too then! The ads you put up on video is more than usual!

    Those hats are amazing. Such gruelling repetitive work to turn those ones inside the shed into the finished product outside in the piles. Great stuff and interesting too.

    Oh, the piece of tea leaf in the cup is good luck in Japan, especially if it is standing straight in the tea!! I wonder about Vietnam, I don’t know.

    How can there be thirteen dislikes?? Give Michele a go, he's cool, his brother is a "monk" for God sake, lol. Really, I really found out about him from the Bald, Baldr, Tim K. I think hes a cut above, the Nicodemus exposes were quite shocking and its nice to have someone real. Keep up the good work Michele!!

    Those white round fruit looks like Lychee fruit….
    Taking you to lots of shops looks like the kind of tours that I went on in 1972 in Hong Kong!
