Small-Group Mekong Delta Day Trip from Ho Chi Minh City

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
Known by Vietnamese as the "Land of Coconuts", Ben Tre is one the best area to explore the untouched and natural landscapes of Mekong Delta and discover its local life, beautiful canals and traditional activities. An authentic and relaxing experience!
  • Experience the Mekong Delta’s scenery and life in a day from Ho Chi Minh City
  • Roam rivers, villages, and workplaces with a guide to uncover local life
  • Cruise canals, visit cottage industries, cycle around fields, and more
  • Limited to 15 people, with transport, lunch, and tours included
What to Expect
Leave your central Ho Chi Minh City hotel by air-conditioned minivan and venture south along highways and across the Rach Mieu suspension bridge to Ben Tre Province in the Mekong Delta. Arrive at Ben Tre’s mosaic of islands and tributaries, and take a boat to a string of traditional Mekong workplaces. See workers turning out clay bricks at a brickkiln, tour a coconut candy workshop, and view artisans making mats at a weaving house. Get glimpses of local life on a stroll around a typical village, ride a motorized rickshaw (xe-loi), and savor a Vietnamese lunch at a picturesque riverside restaurant. Afterward, enjoy a bicycle ride around local fields before boarding a hand-rowed sampan (small boat) to cruise tranquil canals past hamlets, bridges, and rice paddies. Then, travel back to Ho Chi Minh City, where a hotel drop-off concludes your experience.
