Life continues in Vietnam's agrarian heartland much as it has done for centuries. Farmers cultivate paddy fields, tend their orchards of tropical fruits as well as fishes in the rivers and canals that criss-cross this fertile plain. You may also choose to visit a farmer’s house, try your hands at fruit picking or explore myriad of waterways on a typical small boat as used by locals for their daily transportation.
