Once upon a time in (south) Vietnam
During my second trip to Vietnam I had the chance to visit some of the most remote (and less touristic) areas of the Mekong Delta as I was working on a reportage about the Khmer Krom - the cambodian minority who live in this part of the country.

After 5 days spent with some friends in Ho Chi Minh City, I visited Ben Tre, Tra Vinh, Soc Trang, Can Tho and Chau Doc. People in this area of Vietnam are incredible kind as they're not get used to see many tourist, prices are very low (compared to the rest of the country) and you have the chance to visit some really incredible places.
