Spend a day on the scenic Mekong Delta, where you’ll float along the river in a converted rice barge and a local boat before heading to land to travel by tuk tuk. You’ll catch a glimpse at local life on this famous waterway and gain a deeper understanding of village existence from your expert guide. Make stops at a communal temple, farmer’s home and a rural village as you journey along the Mekong’s canals and creeks. You’ll enjoy a three-course lunch of regional specialties on this day-long cruise from Ho Chi Minh City.

Your guide will meet you at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel for an 8 a.m. pick up and transport you in air-conditioned comfort to Ben Tre, a two-hours journey through scenic Vietnamese countryside. Upon arrival you’ll head out on a cruise on the Mekong delta, where you’ll navigate the canals and channels of this picturesque waterway with an expert guide. 

You’ll pay a visit to a home factory where handmade bricks are produced using an age-old technique. Then continue on to a coconut processing plant where you’ll get a behind the scenes look at how this vital fruit is treated, separated and husked to create items like oil and candy.

Spend some time at a creek-side village where you’ll wander ashore with your guide to learn about local customs, traditions and lifestyle. See mat-weaving on a visit to a local home before hoping on a tuk tuk for a tour of the rice paddies that account for most of the landscape of the Mekong. Make a stop at a quiet pagoda where your guide will offer insight into traditional temples and Vietnamese religion and culture. 

After exploring the countryside you’ll step aboard a converted rice barge and follow the waters of the delta as you cruise past coconut palms and tiny villages. Your chef will prepare a three-course lunch, which includes regional specialties, during an on-board cooking demonstration.

Savor your lunch on the return trip to Ben Tre, where you’ll meet your private vehicle for a 4:30 p.m. departure to your Ho Chi Minh City hotel.
