During a short stay in Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City you can choose one-day trips to the Mekong delta. This is a very good chance to experience rural life and visit tranquil orchards or family factories of the Southern Vietnamese people, or to experience the floating lifestyles of the Mekong residents -- a very good getaway from bustling towns.
We will pick you up at your hotel to depart to My Tho. Upon arrival, we will take a boat ride along the river, viewing stilt houses and fruit plantations along the banks. In My Tho we will be visiting fishing villages or floating fish farms.
We will then Proceed to the Tortoise Island and have lunch in an orchard. Hereafter, we will take a boat ride through Tan Thach canal to Ben Tre, cruising under the shadow of water coconut trees and stop for visiting some families to get closer to their rural lifestyle and explore their family business.
Finally, after walking through fruit gardens and villages, we will come back to the boat and return to Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City by Car.
