Mark’s Trip to Vietnam

Mark is currently in Vietnam for a fishing Conference with his friend Darren.

On arriving at Vietnam, this is what he had to say on his first day there:

Vietfish was unreal – the work that they put into this event is a credit to the Fishing and Seafood Industries and Government.

My first day in Vietnam: I am a bit lost for words. It was a huge culture shock. In amongst the chaos, things happen; work gets done!

I had a great flight over and had a good sleep on the plane.  There are10 million people in Saigon and 9 million motorbikes!

Holy moley!  It is amazing how smooth traffic flows without traffic lights or rules!!

We went on an 1 hour ride on the back of a scooter. It  was a little bit scary at first but ended up loving it.  It was the highlight so far. 


Going for a ride on a scooter. Hmmm…where do I sit? 🙂

The service here is very good.  We could get some great skills from the staff over here. 

We are heading to Mekong Delta to look at a fish farm and will try to write more over coming days. Will try and send some photos.
