My hometown is Go Cong, Tien Giang province. It is around 70km far from Ho Chi Minh city when you pass district 8 and Can Giuoc town. We also pass My Loi ferry. Besides, we can go through My Tho city, it's about 110km. And now, I'm going to tell you about Go Cong.
Firstly, we can visit a Tan Thanh beach there. We should go there in early morning in order see the sun rises. It is gorgeous. We should not swim on this beach because the water is unclear. The visitors call it " the sand black". The local people grow shells on this sea, therefore the water looks dirty. As you know, Go Cong' shells are very delicious. There are a lot of bungalows on the beach which local peple watch over their shells. We can sleep in those bungalows at night but they are uncomfortable. Moreover, there is a bridge which is aroung 300 mets in length. We can go on foot to admire the ocean.
Secondly, we can visit the royal mausoleum inscribed with the merit of the family of queen mother Tu Du, who was the grandmother of King Tu Duc. We alse visit Truong Dinh mausoleum who is called a hero.
Thirdly, we can go fishing at a fishpond in my parents' house. There are many kind of tree in the garden. The air is fresh and this place is very quiet. We can enjoy the meals at my parents' house. They have chickens, fishes, vestables..etc which don't buy from the market. We can enjoy the freshfruits which grow in the garden. Besides, we enjoy the watermelon that is famous in Viet Nam. It is very sweet and red.
Fourly, we can go for a row on the channels or the rivels. We can bread the net to catch fishes. We can go to the fields to fly the kites around at 4pm. We can lie down on the stack of straw to look at the kites and the sunset.
The last, we go around the town and enjoy ice-cream, che... We sit beside the pond which is the center of the town. After that, we can sing karaoke at my parents' house because my parents' house has a karaoke's coffee shop or we can lie down on the camp bed to admire the moon.
In conclusion, my hometown is poor. It doesn't have many tourist areas but you cannot forget it when you visit it
