Itinerary Details day 1: HCMC – My Tho – Ben Tre – Can Tho

Your tour guide for today will warmly welcome you and pick you up from your hotel before we begin our fantastic Mekong Delta adventure!

We leave Ho Chi Minh and enjoy the scenic journey along the National Highway, which is bordered by the seasonally green rice fields. On our arrival at My Tho, we first visit the Vinh Trang pagoda before we take a leisurely boat ride along the river flanked by stilt houses, fruit plantations and fishing villages.

We’ll make our way to Tortoise islet and have a traditional lunch (we upgraded the quality of the lunch) in the pleasant orchard garden, before a quick boat ride to An Khanh – a less touristy attraction in Ben Tre. Enjoy cruising on a hand-rowed sampan under the shade of the water coconut trees, which flourish along these natural canals, before sharing a refreshing seasonal fruit & honey tea to the sound of "Southern Vietnamese folk music", performed by locals.

We head on to visit a family business which epitomizes this idyllic rural lifestyle to taste their delicious coconut candy and observe their pastoral life as you roam through the numerous fruit plantations and villages. We proceed to Can Tho where we stay in a 2* hotel.

The rest of the evening is at your leisure, to relax & soak up the ambiance or perhaps explore the bustling Can Tho market.

After breakfast we take a leisurely boat trip to explore the picturesque tributaries of the Lower Mekong River (Bassac River) before making our way to the fascinating Cai Răng floating market, which is the liveliest in the whole religion.

It’s now time for a chance to see how the traditional Vietnamese vermicelli soup is made and have a wander around the village; meeting friendly local people and experiencing how to cross a "Monkey Bridge" which is built by only one stem of bamboo. Fully relax in the tranquil environment of the beautiful orchard garden.

We’ll stop for lunch (we upgraded the quality of the lunch) and proceed to Chau Doc to continue the tour with a visit to Tra Su, the wild bird sanctuary. We cruise smoothly with small boats to discover the arrays of splendid canals deep into the forest while watching storks, cranes and other tropical birds. On the way back stop we visit Sam Mountain, the Cave pagoda (if time permitted).

We head back to town where we stay in a 2* hotel. We overnight in Chau Doc.
