Itinerary

Ben Tre Mekong Gateway Full Day

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 tour was very good value and we enjoyed our day. We hadn’t booked an individual tour but there were only 2 other people in our party which was nice. However, this was a popular tour with many other tour groups doing the same things so I wouldn’t say it gave a very natural view of the Mekong.

A fantastic day tour on the Mekong Delta with tour guide Typhoon Honey. An excellent opportunity to observe the culture and lifestyle of rural living on the rivers with boat trips and visits to local families. Everyone was friendly and welcoming and the lunch provided was great. Thoroughly enjoyable… More

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.
