Ho Chi Minh City to Con Tho via the Mekong River: 15 March 2013

We flew from Phu Bai Airport, located near Hue, to Tan Son Nhut Airport on the morning of the 15th. We then took a 6 mile drive from Tan Son Nhut Airport, through Ho Chi Minh City, to a dock on the Mekong River. We boarded a fast boat for a 118 mile, 6 hour trip down the Mekong River to Con Tho.

This map shows the GPS tracked route from the airport to the dock on the Mekong River.
