This morning, depart from your hotel and drive approximately two hours to Ben Tre, and a gateway to the Mekong Delta. Known also as the rice bowl of Vietnam because of its large rice production, the area has also diversified into activities related to aquaculture, rearing of animals, cash crops and fruit trees.
Start your sightseeing at a brick factory then board a small boat and meander through the canals and waterways. Stop at a small homemade coconut processing plant to see how coconuts have been turned into oil and candy. Visit a bee farm and enjoy a delicious cup of honey tea before embarking on a short rowing boat trip deeper into small canals. After the boat trip you will have a short walk to a local village to see mat weavers at work, before jumping on the deltas version of a tuk tuk and travelling down the country roads to the pier.
Here you will board the beautiful teak boat Le Jarai to continue your cruise along the river. While onboard join in the demonstration of Vietnamese cooking before sitting down to a sumptuous three-course lunch of Mekong specialities.
After lunch relax on the top deck and take in the scenery back to Ben Tre, where on arrival you will transfer back to Ho Chi Minh, arriving late in the afternoon.
