Start with 9am pickup in Ho Chi Minh City, then begin the trip to Ben Tre in a private vehicle. Traveling the Mekong Delta means boats or bridges, and you’ll cross the longest bridge in the region along the way, with views down to two branches of the Tien River.
Upon arrival in Ben Tre, board a small boat for a trip along a scenic waterway, then make the first stop of the day at a local fruit garden. Sample freshly-harvested fruits and meet the farmers, then continue to a rare orchid garden for a glass of honey tea.
Head back to the boat for a trip to a floating fish farm and candy workshop, where you can sample Ben Tre’s distinctive coconut candy. Trade a boat for a motor cart or bicycle (please indicate your preference while booking), and spend 40 minutes touring country roads, the ideal way to get a glimpse of local life in the area. Take a break for some fresh coconut juice, then visit a local restaurant for a traditional Vietnamese lunch. Make one final stop at a Ben Tre pagoda before beginning the return trip to Ho Chi Minh City. This 10-hour tour concludes with drop-off at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel.
