Overview
Take a tour to Ben Tre, an natural land of coconut in the Mekong Delta. Here you will get an insight into the locals’ daily routines and activities as well as a good chance to understand more about some of traditional jobs.
What to Expect
You will be picked up at your hotel in Saigon and taken on a two hours drive to Ben Tre. On arrival at Hung Vuong pier you board a boat that 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 brick-kiln where bricks are still painstakingly made by hand; a coconut processing workshop where you can see how's skillfully and quickly of the peeling coconut-shell worker. And you will know about the different uses of each part in a coconut. Then walking around a village and have a short stop at a local house where you can see people weaving mat by a hand loom – you can even have a go at weaving yourself!

You will then ride a bike or hop onto a motorized rickshaw for a 15 km fun ride through the quiet and beautiful country road to Mr Khanh’s house where you can contemplate a antiques pottery collection as well as feel the enthusiasm and hospitality of the people here. Then get back on your bike or your motorized rickshaw to continue your journey to a local restaurant for a delicious lunch with local specialties as elephant-ear fish, river-shrimp and some kind of iced soft-drink or beers.

After lunch, it’s time to relaxing on a rowing boat along the natural canals return to big boat and cruise back to Hung Vuong Pier. A last stop of your tour today is Vinh Trang Pagoda before driving back to Saigon.
