We were included in a local group therefore we did not understand the explanation in Vietnamese. We had to wait for a European group to come in order to join an “English” group. Only 1 or 2 people can speak English at the farm. Everything...More

Very interesting to see how the oysters are treated to produce cultured pearls, a process that can take a number of years to finalise. Only about 30% of the final results can be used for jewellry and this must be the only business where the...More
