The Tour

Set off for My Tho, a port city on the Mekong Delta. Approximately half of Vietnam's total agricultural output comes from this incredibly fertile delta. Life for villagers here revolves around rivers and canals. Upon arrival board a private boat for a cruise along the river. Visit an island with lush tropical gardens and sample tropical fruit accompanied by a traditional music performance. Continue to another island to see coconut candy being made. We have a chance to visit local villages in the area and learn more about traditional lifestyles, culture and customs. Continue by horse and cart to an apiary where we transfer to smaller rowing boats allowing us to get deeper into the narrow canals. Diem Phuong Restaurant provides lunch. The guide will provide some advice on the finer points of local cuisine and assist in ordering. After lunch return to Ho Chi Minh City.
