Discover the magic of the Mekong on this full-day tour from Ho Chi Minh City. On the trip you'll cruise along the river seeing fruit markets, stilted houses and fishing ports. You'll also visit Tortoise island and see a boat building workshop.
What to Expect
At 7:30, let your guide pick you up from your hotel and enjoy the scenic journey along the way bordered by green rice fields. Once in My Tho, visit Vinh Trang pagoda, take a leisurely boat ride along the river and view the stilt houses, fruit plantations and fishing villages along the river bank. Proceed to Tortoise islet for lunch in the orchard garden. Then a boat ride to An Khanh – a less touristy attraction in Ben Tre. Enjoy cruising on a hand-rowed sampan under the shadow of the water coconut trees along natural canals, then enjoy seasonal fruit & honey tea to the sound of Southern Vietnamese folk music, performed by locals.
Visit a family business which epitomizes the idyllic rural lifestyle, taste the delicious coconut candy and observe the pastoral life as you roam through the fruit plantation and village.
Meet the bus and return to HCMC, for a drop off at city center around 19:00.
