Travel to the city of My Tho, a 2.5 hour journey, by air-conditioned mini-coach. A former naval base, My Tho is now a bustling port city in the Mekong Delta. The area is the final destination of the Mekong River which winds its way from Tibet, China, Burma, Laos, Cambodia and finally Vietnam. An incredibly fertile region its prime industry is food production, producing approximately half of Vietnam's total agricultural output. Life for villagers in the area revolves around the rivers and canals that make up the delta, people are more likely to transport by river than by road.Upon arrival into My Tho you'll board a private boat for a cruise on the Mekong River. On the boat ride your local guide will take you to visit an island with lush tropical gardens where you'll have a chance to sample tropical fruit. You'll continue to another island in the Mekong Delta, you'll learn more about another cottage industry, coconut candy. Your local guide will take you to a coconut candy factory and explain the process of making this sweet. You'll have a chance to visit local villages in the area and learn more about the traditional lifestyles, culture and customs of people who call the Delta their home. Continue by Xe Loi (motorized cart) to a bee farm where you'll transfer to a smaller rowing boat allowing you to get deeper into the smaller canals of the Delta.
Sample the local Mekong cuisine at the Diem Phuong Restaurant where lunch is served. After lunch you'll return to My Tho for the journey back to Ho Chi Minh City.
This was a very interesting tour and we had an excellent guide. The food was great and although there were many tours happening at the same time you felt yours was the only tour happening.
This whole experience was excellent. I was very impressed by the fact that the tour company went ahead with the tour as I was the only person booked that day. The guide for the day was Jay and he was great fun but incredibly knowledgeable with excellent English. The tour itself was really enjoyable
Great local guide and amazing insight into live on the Mekong river
The delta was very different and a great experience we enjoyed the tuk tuk ride from one side to the other very hairy
This was our second tour with Ms Linda Huong Le as part of her family. Once again, an engaging experience, with a warm personality and knowledgeable guide. We had so much fun.....even though the rain was pouring down!
This was an amazing trip! Our guide, Jay, was the best. His english were perfect and he was so kind and funny!
The bus contained wifi and aircondition. The food was sooo good and we tasted a lot of new fruits!
Thanku, Jay for such a great day! We enjoyed every second of it!
