It is said that a vacation to Ho Chi Minh City and South of Vietnam would not be completed without visiting Mekong Delta. Take a full day to Mekong Delta which is great experience to explore amazing local life of people in West South of Vietnam. You will be impressed with transportation on Mekong River. If you have a short time to visit or stop over Ho Chi Minh City, we recommend you take a full day to Ben Tre - gateway to Mekong Delta.

Highlights

  • Stop off at various local workplaces to give you a picture of how the local economy works.
  • Visit a quiet village where you can have a short walk to experience real Delta village life.
  • Board a sampan for a relaxing trip along narrow canals.

Full Itinerary

Ben Tre Mekong Gateway Full Day
  • Local Life
8.00: Pick up at your hotel in Saigon and travel to Ben Tre Province.

The boat will cruise along the Ham Luong River (a branch of the Mekong) and stop off at various local workplaces to give you a picture of how the local economy works, including a brickwork - where bricks are still painstakingly made by hand; a coconut processing workshop - where you can sample fresh coconut and see how every single part of this versatile nut is turned into food and other products; and a mat weaving house - where straw mats are woven using a hand loom – you can even have a go at weaving yourself!

The boat will then stop at a quiet village where you can have a short walk to experience real Delta village life, before boarding your 'xe loi' (a kind of motorized rickshaw) and traveling into the forest where you can visit fruit orchards before stopping at a riverside restaurant for a delicious and filling lunch, featuring such local specialties as elephant-ear fish and river shrimp, washed down with some cold drinks or beers. It’s time to board a sampan boat for a relaxing trip along narrow canals.

Around 17:00 Back to your hotel in Saigon. End of service.

This was by far one of the most organized and better quality tours I've ever been on, especially in Asia! Great scenery, excellent food at the best ever island restaurant (Phoenix). Will definitely do it again when I'm next in Vietnam!
I look forward to joining more of your tours.
