Run away from the city to enjoy a trip around Mekong Delta, one of the biggest tourist attractions of Vietnam where you could perceive how is life away from the downtown of the cities.Highlights- Cruise down Mekong River on a traditional boat trip and see for yourself how life ticks along in Delta - Get a taste for tropical fruit and find out about how they make their coconut candies - Get yourself buzzing as you come close to a big bunch of busy bees - Try out the local delicacies in a typical Vietnamese restaurant We depart Ho Chi Minh City for the city of My Tho (approximately 2 ½ hours). A former naval base, My Tho is now a bustling port city in the Mekong Delta. The area is the final destination of the mighty Mekong River which winds it's way from Tibet, through China, Burma, Laos, Cambodia and finally Vietnam. An incredibly fertile region it's prime industry is food production, producing approximately half of Vietnam's total agricultural output. Life for villages in the area revolves around the rivers and canals that make up the delta, people are more likely to transport by river than road. Upon arrival into My Tho we board our private boat for a cruise on the Mekong River. Our first stop is at a fish farm to gain an insight into one of the cottage industries in the region. On our boat ride our local guide will take us to visit an island with lush tropical gardens where we have a chance to sample tropical fruit. Continuing to another island in the Mekong Delta we learn more about another cottage industry, coconut candy. Our local guide will take us to a factory and explain the process of making the sweet. We have a chance to visit local villages in the area and learn more about the traditional lifestyles, culture and customs of people who call the Delta their home. We continue our visit by Xe Loi (motorized cart), visiting a bee farm where we transfer to smaller rowing boat allowing us to get deeper into the smaller canals of the Delta. Our lunch destination is Diem Phuong restaurant where our local guide will provide us with some advice on the finer points of local cuisine and assist us with ordering some of these delicacies. After lunch we return to My Tho for the journey back to Ho Chi Minh City where you will be dropped off at your hotel. Languages: English. Redeem informationVoucher type: PrintedPrinted Voucher.
