Itinerary
Leave your central Ho Chi Minh City hotel by air-conditioned minivan and venture south along highways and across the Rach Mieu suspension bridge to Ben Tre Province in the Mekong Delta.

Arrive at Ben Tre’s mosaic of islands and tributaries, and take a boat to a string of traditional Mekong workplaces. See workers turning out clay bricks at a brickkiln, tour a coconut candy workshop, and view artisans making mats at a weaving house.

Get glimpses of local life on a stroll around a typical village, ride a motorized rickshaw (xe-loi), and savor a Vietnamese lunch at a picturesque riverside restaurant.

Afterward, enjoy a bicycle ride around local fields before boarding a hand-rowed sampan (small boat) to cruise tranquil canals past hamlets, bridges, and rice paddies. Then, travel back to Ho Chi Minh City, where a hotel drop-off concludes your experience.
