Binh Thanh Island, Sadec & Cai Be

Mar 09, 2018 - Jahan


The day commenced with a short ride in the longboat to explore the local community of Sadec on Binh Thanh Island. Here we wandered through the village, meeting with elders at the local temple and then watching locals use traditional methods to weave reed mats that are sold throughout Vietnam.

After lunch we again boarded the longboats, moving though local markets and fishing operations of the bustling town of Cai Be. We landed at a small, authentic family home workshop and learned how rice paper, pop rice, and coconut candies are made.
