Description

Discover the verdant beauty of the Mekong Delta on a day trip from Ho Chi Minh City. Travel in an air-conditioned minivan or bus and board a motorboat for a ride through islands on the Tien River. Visit the Vinh Trang Pagoda and enjoy a local lunch in an orchard. Depart from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel and head to the Mekong Delta. Pass by green rice fields before arriving at the beautiful rural My Tho. Along the way, visit the Vinh Trang Pagoda, a famous Buddhist temple located in My Tho. Admire the unique architecture of this historic site, which features a blend of Vietnamese, Khmer, and Chinese influences.  Go by motorized boat on the Tien River to the Tortoise islet and the Dragon, Phoenix, and Unicorn Islet. The journey takes you through tranquil fruit orchards, verdant rice paddies, and rustic villages where you can observe the daily lives of locals. Walk into the village, where you can visit a local fruit garden and enjoy the tropical fruit while listening to Southern Vietnamese folk music performed by islanders. Next, head to the riverside for a sampan riding experience, gliding along the intricate waterways with coconut palms line both sides. This is a chance to witness the region's rural life up close. Visit the bee house and taste some honey tea. Lunch will be served right in the heart of the orchard garden. Take the boat cruise to Ben Tre province - the land of coconuts where you can tour a coconut farm and witness the process of making coconut candy, rice paper, and other coconut-based products.. As the sun sets, travel back to Ho Chi Minh City, with a newfound appreciation for the natural beauty and cultural significance of the Mekong Delta.
