Very well organised tour. Went on my own and was great setting my own pace. Loi my guide is a lovely man full of information. Even liked the drive there.
It was just perfect. Funny, complete, always at time… Ms Tee and the driver were kind all the time. Don’t miss the Mekong Delta, is a unique experience.
I travelled for the first time to Ho Chi Minh with my husband and 3 kids and had been lucky to be in contact with Jenny at Vietnam Discovery. Jenny even arranged for our visa application, airport transfers and private tours to Cu Chi tunnels and to Mekong delta. The vehicles were impeccably clean and almost new and the driver and guide very friendly and helpful. A special thanks also to our guide, Luu Binh, whose company my kids enjoyed. Thank you Vietnam discovery for making our short trip very sweet and enjoyable.
“Coconuts land – the legendary land of Ben Tre” as everyone knows Ben Tre is “The land of coconuts” so that images of coconuts and the girls of the land have been into traditional music and poems for many years. Coconuts are everywhere, in the wind, in the sunlight and coconuts leaves are reflected on water while we are sailing on boat through canals and they are stretching endless before your eye-sights.
Khmer is part of ethnic minorities in Ben Tre along with Kinh, Tay and Hoa communities and the time when you listen to a veteran telling stories of Khmer Rouge is one of the highlights when you join the Mekong delta tour and discover this fabulous land, in addition to visiting this wonderful waterway landscape of Mekong River, staying at workshops to see how local residents make traditional handicraft products and enjoying self-making Hu Tieu noodles just in 24 hours.

08:00: Be picked up at hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, head toward Ben Tre District (90km far away from the City)
You will not travel around the place by four instead of one type transportation because of different topographic in this area. First of all, the most popular vehicle Xe Loi (Motorbike pulling cart) will take you through green paddy fields and gardens. Thanks to its convenience, you will be taken to the small corners, small roads of the village to discover their day-to-day life among green lands and flourishing fruits orchards.
Going around the village’s done and now it’s time to board on sampan, continuing discovering Mekong River. A large network of bending river and interlaced canals will only be approached by sampan so that all the fishermen’ life and sunning waterway landscape of the place are all in your observation. Additionally, if you want to have a different view of the village, so please take a trip on boat by rowing yourself or cycling around small roads on Mekong Delta Islets.
Finishing lunch with local foods at a river side restaurant, tourists will then take to the traditional house of the village that is made from coconut in style of typically wooden house. Reaching local residents’ house and our tour guide will take you to traditional handicraft workshops, giving you the chance to observe performers making skillful products or making coconut products, Hu Tieu noodles, etc. Besides, chatting with locals to share the ups-and-downs in life between people or listening to a Viet Cong soldier telling stories how he survived in the fight against Khmer Rouge is also unforgettable moment.
We call it the day, and say goodbye to all hospitable hosts before going back to the boat waiting to bring you back Ho Chi Minh City.
