Mekong Delta is also known as Vietnam’s ‘rice basket’- a fertile area spreading nearly 50,000 sq km. Here the mighty Mekong river ends by splitting itself into nine major tributaries. The Vietnamese name these nine tributaries “Nine Dragons”. This trip is planned to help you experience local daily activities along the Mekong.
Morning pick up and travel by bus to My Tho.
Arrival at 09:30 AM, board a wooden motor boat to Unicorn Island. On this boat along the river’s bank, passing through natural creeks and quiet villages and watch rural people going to work. You will see an interesting fishermen’s port, stilt houses. One of the boat’s stops during this trip is at a large orchard that has many different types of tasty tropical fruits for your enjoyments.
Another boat stop is for the Tortoise Island, see interesting transportation modes that local people use to move around. From there, visit a bee farm where you have a chance to taste a tasteful cup of authentic honey tea while checking out the folk music that is typical to only the people in Southern Vietnam.
After that, we’ll take you to a village where you can smell the flavor of coconut candies being made many yards away.
