Mekong Delta - My Tho & Ben Tre Coconut Village
We will begin our 2 hour drive to My Tho is one of many provinces in Mekong Delta region. A trip to the Mekong Delta offers a glimpse into the unique and distinct agrarian life of the vibrant southern Delta region. We will enjoy a cruise along the Mekong River to Unicorn Island (located in My Tho Town) where we will be entertained with traditional music. We will then take a sampan to cruise through the narrow canals of the Mekong. The paddle-boat ride will provide an interesting look into the cottage industries where coconut candies are manufactured by the locals. We will then have lunch with the popularly known ‘Elephant Ear’ fish combined with other delicious Vietnamese dishes. We will have the opportunity to visit a bee farm where we can spoil ourselves with the freshest ingredients around. This includes delicious tea with fresh honey right from the beehives and a delightful fruit selection. Drive back to Ho Chi Minh City.
