Take part in a variety of activities that will offer you the chance to get to know Vietnam. Hop aboard a horse-drawn cart and admire the coconut trees that dominate the landscape. Row down the canal in a small boat, then cycle down provincial roads to see the rice fields, pineapple plantations, orchards, and small hamlets. Ride a motorboat down the mighty Mekong River and see Dragon Island, Phoenix Island, and Turtle Island. Stop at the famous Unicorn Island and visit a local bee farm. Taste natural honey along with honey wine, rice wine, and banana wine. Walk through the village, then visit a coconut candy workshop and learn how to make coconut candies.

If you choose the "Luxury Tour Group Tour" option then after this delicious snack, you will take you back to My Tho to visit the Vinh Trang Pagoda.

Day trip .. excellent value for money .. our guide Hai was very nice! Roadmap quite tight but in a few hours you can see a lot. I would have stopped the stop at the bamboo products store (made just for you to buy) but in these organized tours it is a bit of a classic .. all in all a nice experience especially if you have little time. With a couple of extra days I probably would have preferred something DIY!

We had a good trip to the Mekong region. Good value for the price, however we were expecting to see a village from Mekong Delta and see a bit more of their culture. The tour guide was nice and friendly, very informative and good language skills. We did not like the last stop were basically were put in a showroom trying to sell stuff made with bamboo and coconut fiber.

Really good day and value for money. Could have done with more than an hour to enjoy the lunch though (which was really nice!) and relax a while afterwards. The tour guide was lovely and very informative.
