Know More about this tour

Upon hotel pickup around 8am, travel by air-conditioned vehicle to Ben Tre, an approximate two-hour drive from Ho Chi Minh City. When you arrive with your guide, embark on a fascinating tour of Mekong Delta canals by local boat, stopping to visit some of the residents and their enterprises along the way.


Visit a home factory where bricks are made before you continue by boat to a coconut processing plant. Here, learn from your guide how this important fruit is treated by separating oil, flesh and husk then used to make coconut oil, matting and delicious coconut candy.


Back aboard the small boat, head further along the winding channels for a brief journey to a creek-side village. Disembark and go on a short walking tour with your guide, heading to a farmers house to witness a traditional mat-weaving process first-hand. From here, hop on a xe loi (tuk tuk-style motor cart) and ride through the picturesque rice paddies of the Mekong countryside. Stop at a local pagoda to learn from your guide about the role of traditional communal temples in Vietnamese village culture.


Next, climb aboard Le Jarai, a converted rice barge, and cruise under the shadows of water-coconut palms growing along the banks. Relax as you coast along the pleasant waters of the delta and take in the sights. If youd like, you can watch a Vietnamese cooking demonstration as the onboard chef prepares your lavish three-course lunch, including traditional Mekong specialties.


Enjoy your delicious lunch as you cruise back to Ben Tre, returning by vehicle around 4:30pm to Ho Chi Minh City, where your guide will drop you off at your hotel.
