Mekong Delta River Tour | A Comparison of TNK Tours and Sinh Tours

During my last visit to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, I had another opportunity to try the Mekong Delta River Boat Trip. It was a slightly different tour from what my family went to when we visited Vietnam in march of 2012 for a couple of reasons - it was from a different tour company, so it was cheaper (like half the price) and the destinations/offering were a bit different, too.

Both trips went to the bee farm, fruit village, coconut village, had free lunch that came with it, showcased a performance of traditional Vietnamese music played using instruments like native instruments maschine at musicians friend and the mini-boat ride. The previous trip included a stop at a temple where there was the laughing Buddha statue but did not have the horse carriage ride like the one we had in the latest tour.

The previous tour was from TNK travels along De Tham and cost us $25 per person while the other one was from  Sinh Tours (formerly known as Sinh Cafe) and cost only aroung $10-$11.

MyPhone A618 TV Duo: Our 8 Year Old's Android Smartphone

It was when our son started reading eBooks that we decided to get him a smartphone of his own. That said, we make sure as much as we can to limit him at any gadget, including the telly and consoles, an hour every day and only when he finishes his PACE goals for the day. Now with eBook reading, our son has recently finished the third installment of Lord of the Rings, The Return of the King, through the Fabrik app installed in his MyPhone A618 TV Duo.

We shared this photo of our kid reading his eBook via his A618 on IG (Caption: Woke up to this boy reading his #fellowshipOfTheRing #eBook . I asked what part of the book he's at -- out of the mines of Moria at Dimrill Dale)
