On our last cycling day in Vietnam, we had an early start. It was pleasant to ride along the coast. We stopped in a small village and tasted fresh jack fruit. Later, we tasted delicious dragon fruit. Very impressive to see how they grow around a concrete post. We got to see the fruits and the flowers on the plants. And you can see it also here with the photos. I know when have some dragon fruits in our grocery store but with the long trip to arrive to Canada, I was not impressed with the taste . To “eat local food” is always best. Don’t you think so ?
Dragon fruits have mildly sweet flavour which can be compared to a melon. They are great source of Vitamin C.
Around this house, a field of dragon fruit plants.
Here this lady was selling fresh dragon fruits. Delicious !
Later we saw a salt farm.
Have you seen rice like that ? Before it gets to a bag or a box, it looks like this.
We finished our cycling day. We had done 450 km in 11 days. We were very happy and ready for other adventures !! We had lunch before we got in the van for a 4 hours drive to get to Saigon that is now called HCMC ( Ho Chi Ming City). On our way, we saw plantations of rubber trees.
My next post will be about our visit in HCMC. Thanks again for reading. And thank you also for comments you make on my travel stories.
