Picture pirouette: Pineapple mountains in Vietnam

Pineapple lovers, start drooling: not only is this a huge pile of pineapples, I can personally vouch for the fact that they were sweet, juicy, and generally the most delicious pineapple I’d ever tasted. On a day trip out along the Mekong Delta in southern Vietnam, perhaps an hour or two out of Ho Chi Minh City, I got to taste this local product and I couldn’t get enough!
FYI, I did take a kind of tour to do this, but it was cheap and locally-run and managed – I just signed up once I’d got to HCMC. You know I’m no tour fan, but in Vietnam it seemed they had a bit of an industry for backpacker-friendly tours, to do the kinds of things (travel by small boat along the Mekong, for example) which would be difficult to organise otherwise. Just so you know, I’m not a completely anti-tour snob!
