    Hi there!

    Warm greeting from Serendipity Travel of Myanmar !

    I have an intensive tour group planning to visit around Mekong region and more specifically we are eager to see the whole process of Rice production ( planting, drying, milling machines, etc… ) and we also want to see the fruits and vegetable plantation sites with the packing procedures at a house or workshop,fruit dryer. I know that musk melon is very popular there. So we are very interesting to see the way how they are sent to the international market.

    My idea is that we will see all those places and want to have a local farmer briefing or explaining about his farms and yields at his place. Then question and answer section will be followed for 20 min. I don’t know much about the geography of Vietnam but it should be somehow like 5N/6D tour including filed visits ( rice, fruits, flowers ) and briefing activities and private visit to packing places for fruits, drying and milling places for rice and so on. After visiting to all these places, shall we just relax at the beach? I also know that you have a very beautiful beach at Phu Quoc.

    This is my plan to make up something very technical agriculture tour. If you think you can organize such group tour, I will bring at least 300 for one season.So please consider and calculate about your possibilities and kindly get me back soon. It would be great to have it as soon as possible so I can present at the farmer union in my country. I was highly recommended by my friends from US and that’s why I contact you. Please update me. Thanks for your time.
