Mekong Delta is also known as Vietnam’s ‘rice basket’– a fertile area spreading nearly 50,000 sq km. The mighty Mekong river ends by splitting itself into nine major tributaries, it is known as the name “Nine Dragons.” We tailor below itinerary to help you experience local daily activities along the Mekong.
8:00am: our car will take you to My Tho
9:30 am: get to the wooden motor boat to Unicorn Island. On this boat along the river’s bank, you’ll be 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 Turtle Island 1 hour from the previous one. At this place you’ll see interesting transportation modes that local people use to move around.
From there, we’ll take you to 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. This is a great chance to witness how village people make candy and handcrafted items from coconuts. You might learn that those people can amazingly make dozens of useful products out of coconut trees.
