Full description
Begin with a scenic journey along the National Highway whilst bordered by green rice fields. Upon your arrival to My Tho you can visit the Vinh Trang pagoda, take a leisurely boat ride along the river, and view the stilt houses, fruit plantations, and fishing villages along the river bank.

You'll then proceed to Tortoise Islet where you will have lunch in the orchard garden. A boat ride to An Khanh will follow, where you can enjoy cruising on a hand-rowed sampan under the shadow of the water coconut trees along natural canals. Following that, enjoy seasonal fruit with honey tea whilst listening to the sound of Southern Vietnamese folk music as performed by locals.

You will then take a special cruise along the Mekong River throughout which you will see quaint fish markets, stroll around orchard gardens, and enjoy some tropical fruit on an island. You'll also get to learn more about the processes of making coconut candy and collecting honey, and experience more traditional folk music.

Towards the end of your tour, visit a family business which epitomizes the idyllic rural lifestyle and taste delicious coconut candy whilst observing the local pastoral life. Finally, board your bus and return to Ho Chi Minh City.
