    I love how you capture the bustle of life in this video. The people, their faces and the areas they live in. This particular one hit home because I went back to Vietnam a year ago and it was my first time in 27 years and I too went on a boat ride to these floating markets. I relished every moment of it. I was 2 when I left my home country. It was very emotional for me going back to a place I should've known about but clearly didn't.
    I'm glad someone who is not native, like you, can truly enjoy what it means to visit a different country and get really into the roots of what makes it tick.
    Thank you for this Mike, this is why I subscribed to you. Cheers friend.
    Also, your boat captain kinda resembles my uncle and he loves to sing too. xP

    Great video! Everyone and everything is so colourful. I also love that everyone you see has a smile on their face. All the food looks so delish, I want to eat it all! I love the noodle hammocks. They are really little works of art. And, the lady making the crowns and the animals from the leaves is also amazing. Thank you so much for sharing all of that, and so much more with us. Hopefully, I will be able to experience it first hand, some day. Keep up the great work! Can't wait to see your next video!

    My parents were born and raised in Vietnam for about 20 years, and moved to the Philippines, then to Washington, and then to Nevada where we still live now. They were very poor, and would tell me stories of life in Vietnam. Coming from your point of view and your perspective of the culture was refreshing since I can relate (I eat Vietnamese food though, and I speak the language) Vietnam is truly beautiful, and you’ve shown me everything from a non-native point of view. Thanks bruthah.
