What to Expect
Day 1: HCM – My Tho – Ben Tre – Can Tho (L)
Leave Ho Chi Minh city and enjoy a scenic journey along the National Highway, bordered by green rice fields. Upon arrival at My Tho, visit Vinh Trang pagoda, take a leisurely boat ride along the river, and see stilt houses, fruit plantations, and fishing villages along the river bank. Continue on to Tortoise islet where you'll eat lunch in the orchard garden.
Next, enjoy a boat ride to An Khanh – a less touristy attraction in Ben Tre - cruising on a hand-rowed sampan along natural canals, shaded by water coconut trees. Sip seasonal fruit and honey tea to the sound of "Southern Vietnamese folk music", performed by the locals.
Visit a family business that epitomizes the idyllic rural lifestyle, taste delicious coconut candy and take in the pastoral life as you roam through fruit plantations and villages. Proceed to Can Tho. Overnight in the hotel (family home-stay with dinner can be arranged on request). You'll have free time to visit the bustling Can Tho market.
Day 2: Phong Dien – Cai Rang (B)
Take a leisurely boat trip to explore the picturesque tributaries of the Lower Mekong river (Bassac River), then visit CaiRăng floating market (Phong Dien is also optional), which are the liveliest in the whole religion.
Have you ever tasted Vietnamese vermicelli soup? Well, now you can even see how it is made. Afterwards, wander around the village and meet the friendly local people, and learn how to cross a "Monkey bridge", built using just one stem of bamboo. Visit the orchard garden, and stop for lunch before heading back to HCM city.
