Exciting Mekong Delta Gateway

1 day
About this activity
The Mekong Delta, or Cuu Long in Vietnamese, with it rich agricultural soil, is one of the nation's rice baskets. The surrounding area is comprised of low lying rice paddies and the rivers are bordered by dense mangroves and palms. The tributaries of Mekong River provide a comprehensive network of canals and channels. Travel by river is the best method to explore the region at a leisurely pace as it offers opportunities to experience the truly unique Mekong River lifestyle. Cruising on the roof of a boat as the sun sets over distant coconut trees is a truly remarkable experience. The Mekong Delta Day Trip starts at 8:00 am from the lobby of guests's hotel in Saigon with a drive to My Tho, the capital of Tien Giang Province 72 kms from Ho Chi Minh City (Former Saigon). Guests will take time to visit Vinh Trang pagoda, the most beautiful pagoda of the province with mixture structure of many styles. Then take a boat trip round 4 beautiful islets: Dragon, Unicorn, Phoenix , and Tortoise. These evergreen islands among the Mekong River still remain unknown to many people. You will discover beautiful landscapes along the river and observe the typical Mekong delta rural life. Stops on the way can be made upon request for particular visits or photos making. Visit a traditional house at Quoi An village (all made from coconut). See coconut collection sets and how locals make handicrafts from trunk and shell, guests can see that they waste nothing. Enjoy seasonal fruit and listening to traditional music. Take horse cart on village path and stop at Ben Truc orchard, taste honey with tea or Mekong whisky (they have a funny rule for guests to get in). Take rowing-boat on water palm creek. Take boat to visit coconut candy mill (special product of Ben Tre province). Enjoy fantastic lunch at local restaurant before coming back to Saigon.
