For those who are very interested in the country life.
Mekong delta comprises 13 provinces formed by sediment deposited by the Mekong River. It is a region of lowlands with thousands of canals and arroyos densely crisscrossing. Its fertile soil is very favorable to aquatic culture and fruit tree planting.
Ben Tre is the capital of Ben Tre Province and is located in the Mekong Delta about 85km southwest of Saigon. It shares its border with Tien Giang in the north, Vinh Long in the west and south - west, and Tra Vinh in the south. It has 60km of seashore.

In the morning, we will depart Saigon for Ben Tre, a coconut kingdom of Mekong Delta. We can avoid the tourist crowds with a visit to more authentic places as follows: the rice paddy fields, the brick kiln, and some local traditional industries.
--> Take a short walk through the village.
--> Have lunch at a local family's house.
--> Other exciting activities.
For me, the most important thing is your satisfaction. I am very flexible about the itinerary to ensure you can see a lot of interesting places. It is the REAL Mekong Delta experience! A tour to remember.

Our guide (Khoa) was articulate, knowledgeable and friendly. He tweaked the tour at our request to emphasize some off the beaten path sites highlighted by a native lunch served at a homestay seemingly deep in the woods. We enjoyed various modes of transport, got close up looks at how Delta folks live and work, and were informed and entertained by Khoa's stories. In addition, he was forthright with answers to our wide-ranging questions. Highly recommend this tour, and Khoa.
