DescriptionAfter being picked up from your hotel at 8 AM by your private car and tour guide, drive for 2-hours out of Saigon to My Tho City, known for its lush orchard gardens and traditional folk music. Take a leisurely cruise on the Tien River to see 4 islets which are represented as four mythical animals in Southeast Asia: Dragon, Kirin, Tortoise, and Phoenix. At Kirin islet, visit a honey bee farm and a coconut candy workshop where you can taste the local specialties and see how the delicious sweets are made by hand. Walk through the orchard gardens to taste some seasonal tropical fruits and listen to some folk music. Relax on a rowing boat cruise as you journey through a mangrove palm canal then continue your trip with a horse-drawn carriage ride through the village to experience the way locals traveled in the 19th-century. After eating lunch at a beautiful riverside restaurant, head back to Can Tho City and enjoy free time in the evening to explore. Stay overnight at your hotel. On the second day, you have 2 options to meet your guide: at 5 AM or 7 AM. If you choose 5 AM, then you can have breakfast after coming back to your hotel from the floating market. If you choose 7 AM, you should have breakfast before meeting the guide. Even though Cai Rang Floating Market is open all day, the perfect time to catch the lively atmosphere is at around 6 AM. Cruise along the Hau river from Ninh Kieu Wharf. Try tropical fruits or even a hot rice noodle soup for a light breakfast. Stop at a chewy noodle workshop to learn more about other kinds of Vietnamese noodles. On the way back to Saigon, stop in Ben Tre province, known as the coconut kingdom, for a 7-10 km bike ride. Pass through tropical fruit gardens and mangrove palm scenery. Visit a countryside market and meet the friendly locals. Finally, head to a coconut garden and try your hand at harvesting the fruit yourself. Enjoy a typical home-grown lunch before departing for Saigon.
