Round trip transport from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel
Start with pickup at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, then travel into the Mekong Delta in a private vehicle. The first stop of the day is a sampan boat trip through Dragon, Unicorn, Turtle and Phoenix Islands. If desired, you can stop by some local workshops to see how products such as coconut candy, rice paste, popcorn, and popped rice are made.
Then board a smaller boat to cruise along the Xep Canal, set in a forest of palm trees. Hop on a horse-driven cart to a local garden for a honey tasting session.
The afternoon is all about exploring the rural Mekong Delta, following smaller and smaller canals into the countryside. You’ll see local people catching fish and picking fruit, and you can stop off at a nursery to see fruit tree cultivation. Try some of the fruit from the garden (along with a glass of homemade rice wine), and listen to traditional Mekong Delta music. Enjoy a traditional lunch at an eco-garden with fresh foods from the area. You also have ample time to cycle through the villages before heading back to Vinh Long Town, where you’ll begin the return trip to Ho Chi Minh City. This private tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
