Description

The lush rice fields of the Mekong Delta offer an opportunity to discover the pastoral traditions of rural Vietnamese life. Visit historic temples, stilt houses and idyllic communities on this 2-day excursion that introduces you to local lifestyles that have stayed much the same for generations.

Day 1:
After a convenient pick-up from your hotel, leave Ho Chi Minh City behind and enjoy the scenic journey past green rice fields. When you arrive at My Tho, you can pay a visit to the famed Vinh Trang Temple before a leisurely boat trip takes you along the river. Get a glimpse at the stilt houses, fruit plantations and fishing villages along the riverbank.

Stop for lunch in an orchard on Tortoise Island before a boat trip to An Khanh, a more secluded attraction where you can cruise on a hand-rowed sampan along natural canals under the shade of water coconut trees. Next, enjoy seasonal fruit and honey tea to the sound of southern Vietnamese folk music performed by the locals. Visit a family business, taste coconut sweets and observe the pastoral life before you head to the city of Can Tho for your overnight stay.

Day 2:
Take a leisurely boat trip to explore the tributaries of the Bassac River before you visit the Cai Răng floating market, one of the liveliest in the whole religion. As you explore the village, you can see how Vietnamese vermicelli soup is made, meet the friendly local people and cross a “monkey bridge” built with only a single stem of bamboo.

After a visit to a local orchard, stop for lunch before your transfer takes you back to Ho Chi Minh City.

The guide and the activities were all excellent. However we wish the pre-booking info had been clearer about the length of time on the coach. The quality of the hotel for the overnight stay was very poor and spoilt the whole experience. We are more mature travelers and it was not suitable for us. Other people on the same tour had booked through other operators and stayed at much better quality hotels.

Our tour guide, I think his name is spelled Hui, had us laughing, singing and clapping our hands. He is an excellent entertainer and educator. The best tour guide we have ever experienced. He really made the tour for us.
