Itinerary
After pickup at your Ho Chi Minh hotel, travel to Ben Tre on the Mekong Delta by air-conditioned minivan.

On arrival, take a cruise along the River Ham Luong and visit various local workplaces. See bricks made by hand at a brickworks studio, watch as coconuts are turned into foodstuffs and products at a factory—perhaps sampling some fresh coconut—and visit a weaving house to view mats being worked at hand looms, with the opportunity to try weaving yourself.

Then, delve into daily life in the delta as you explore a quiet village and ride a xe loi motorized rickshaw around fruit orchards. Visit a riverfront restaurant to lunch on staples such as elephant-ear fish and river shrimp, and finally, ride a rowing sampan along narrow canals to enjoy the scenery.

After another boat ride, your trip ends at the original Ho Chi Minh starting point.

Not bad

The tour is alright, a lot of driving (about 2 hours per way). Lunch is good and would be great if the sampan ride is a bit longer, it was a bit short.

Very good tour

This was a really nice tour. My wife and I didn't know what to expect at all, but our guide Kuyler did a great job showing us around, explaining a lot of the industries around the area, and what they do. Coconut factory, brick kilns,...More

Thank swanst01

I can’t paste a website link on here, it won’t let me. But google ‘A Travel Mate’ and you’ll find the details. If I remember they’re not the best at replying to emails though.
