My tho, the gateway to Mekong Delta, was founded in the 17th century by Chinese refugees fleeing Taiwan after the fall of the Southern Ming dynasty.The economy is based on tourism, fishing and the cultivation of rice, coconuts, bananas, mangoes, longans and citrus fruit. Come with us on this spectacular day trip to visit the local islands and learn about the traditional way of living. Enjoy a boat ride on the famous Mekong River.

The tour will begin around 7.30–8 am. Upon arrival in My Tho, embark on a timber motor boat to Unicorn Island (20 minutes). Enjoy the river views as you pass through unpolished creeks, enchanting fisherman's ports and stilt houses.

Next, we'll take you to a bee farm where you can taste the local unsophisticated honey tea before we head out for a walk around the peaceful villages and observe the life of rustic people in Mekong Delta.

In small groups, we'll then head out on small row boats for a 15-minute trip. You’ll see all kinds of interesting modes of transport that local people use, while enjoying the fresh air along the canal and the wonderful water coconut treed landscape. Get away from the city and spend time outdoors, that is what it is all about!

After you enjoy the serenity, we will head back to the large motor boat for something different. You'll explore some orchards along two long sides of a canal, then we cruise to a village where the sweet smell of coconut candies are in the air. This village that has many small shops that make coconut candy and other hand-made items from coconut trees of Mekong Delta. The local people can make dozens of useful products out of coconut trees.

After lunch at a restaurant, the boat will stop at a seasonal fruit garden where you can enjoy many different types of tasty tropical fruits while enjoying the folk music that is typical to only the people in Southern Vietnam.

As the tour comes to an end, you will return Saigon by tourist bus/private car at 6.00pm - 6.30pm. On the way back, we'll stop at an interesting point to rest and take photographs (if time permits).
