Leaving the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City at around 7:30am and start your trip to depart for My Tho. The town lies on the left side of the Mekong River. Upon arrival we visit Vinh Trang Pagoda, which dates back to the late 19th century. We then board a traditional sampan to cruise down the river around four beautiful islands known as Dragon, Unicorn, Phoenix and Tortoise islands.

We stop at Unicorn Island for a short walk around over a ‘countryside lane’ to see orchards and enjoy tropical fruits and folk song music, which is performed by local people and visit the fruit plantation.

We take a leisurely boat ride on a hand-rowed sampan through Thoi Son canal and soak in the beauty of the countryside and visit a family business of honey-bee farmers and enjoy honey tea and coconut candy at their workshop. Then, we have lunch at a local restaurant and some free time to relax.

In the afternoon we cycle around the Tan Thach village, meet the local villagers to experience local daily life in the Mekong Delta. Some last time to relax before we return to Ho Chi Minh City where the trip ends at your hotel at around 17:30.


For your peace of mind, our tours are designed to include as much as possible in the price, but also to give you the freedom to find a special place to eat or to seek out an independent adventure that especially appeals to you. Reservations during peak times (Christmas, New Year, Vietnamese Lunar New Year, National Holidays) are subject to supplementary charges.
