What You'll Do
  • See the Buddhist temple of the Vĩnh Tràng Pagoda
  • Glide along the natural canals of the Mekong Delta aboard a hand-rowed sampan
  • Catch some fish to fry using traditional methods
Overview
Experience life in the Mekong Delta on a full-day tour from Ho Chi Minh City. Travel past stilted houses and taste honey tea at a bee farm. Try to catch some fish wearing traditional fishermen's clothes, and glide along the natural canals by sampan.
What to Expect
Depart Ho Chi Minh City and take a scenic journey along the National Highway, bordered by green rice fields. Arrive at Mỹ Tho and visit the Buddhist temple of the Vĩnh Tràng Pagoda. Then, take a leisurely boat ride along the river. See traditional stilt houses, fruit plantations and fishing villages on the way to Tortoise Islet, where you will eat lunch in an orchard garden.

Continue by boat to An Khánh, a hidden attraction in Bến Tre. Climb aboard a hand-rowed sampan and glide under the shade of water coconut trees. Travel along the canals, and then savor seasonal fruit and honey tea to the sound of southern Vietnamese folk music performed by the locals.

Put on the traditional Mekong Delta farming clothes (Ao Ba Ba) and jump into the muddy creek to catch some fish. Watch as the fish is fried using straw to experience a traditional Mekong Delta dish. Visit a family business that epitomizes the idyllic rural lifestyle. Taste delicious coconut candy and observe the pastoral life as you roam through fruit plantations and villages. 

Then, head back to Ho Chi Minh City, departing at 15:00 for an estimated arrival at approximately 17:30.
