Mekong Delta: My Tho – Ben Tre Full-day

Tour Details

7:30 am: Driver and tour guide will pick you up at your hotel in District 1 in Ho Chi Minh City and transfer to My Tho town. Arrive in the charming rural town of My Tho following a leisurely 1.5-hour bus ride through verdant rice fields.

Once you reach My Tho town, visit Vinh Trang Pagoda, the oldest ancient pagoda in Southern Vietnam. The largest pagoda and most unusual architectural style in the Mekong Delta are well known. Along with Khmer culture, European and Vietnamese cultures also had an impact on the architecture.

From the morning excursion, there is a motorized boat excursion to the Qui (Tortoise islet) on the Tien river. Along the way, you’ll pass the fishing port, the islands of the other Dragon, the Phoenix, and the Unicorn, as well as stilt houses and boat-building workshops.

You can reach the lovely rural town of Mỹ Tho by taking a leisurely one and a half hour bus ride that passes through verdant rice fields. Through the Bao Dinh canal, the boat will transport you to Ben Tre province, popularly referred to as “the country of coconuts,” where you can explore a typical agricultural model called “Garden – Pond – Cage” and enjoy the relaxing coconut candy factory and honey tea. Don’t miss the amazing rowing boat ride on the small canal, which is fully protected from the sun by a water coconut tree and pleasant breezes. There will be a substantial lunch served in the orchard garden.

After lunch, the islanders will play “Southern Vietnamese folk music” as we stroll through the hamlet, stop at a fruit orchard, and enjoy some exotic fruit. Here, we can take in the breathtaking natural surroundings and engage in the everyday activities of the locals.

Your expectations will be exceeded by the last boat ride back to My Tho along the Tan Thach natural canal.

6:00 pm: Return to Ho Chi Minh City.
