Itinerary

Luxury Tour: Exploring the Authentic Mekong Delta - 1 Day

8.00AM: Visitors will be picked up around District 1 before traveling to Ben Tre which will take
approximately 2 hours. Upon arrival at the Ham Luong River (a branch of the Mekong Delta
River), visitors will board a boat for a sightseeing cruise along the river where you can admire
the beauty of the coconut trees up-close as they line both sides of the narrow canals. Visitors
will then tour a local brick-making factory where you will learn about the traditional brick
production technique that uses clay from the river and rice husks from the fields. You will also
get a chance to visit a coconut processing factory and a traditional sedge mat-weaving village
where you will discover the impressive handiwork of local families.
After a short walk through a village in the Mekong Delta, you will board an auto rickshaw (xe
lam) for a memorable journey to a riverside restaurant for a delicious local lunch meal and a
brief break.
After the lunch break, you will cruise through the canals by a sampan, a flat-bottomed wooden
boat commonly found in the Mekong region, where you can enjoy the calm and serene
atmosphere created by the surrounding banana and coconut trees.

Once back at the pier, visitors will then explore the bustling and colorful Ben Tre floating
markets where local Mekong merchants showcase the best of what the region offers.

To conclude the tour, there will be a stop on the way back for a short visit at the Vinh Trang
pagoda before returning to Ho Chi Minh City.
