Ho Chi Minh City: Mekong Delta, Pagoda & Rowboat Tour

1. Ho Chi Minh City: Mekong Delta, Pagoda & Rowboat Tour

Discover the verdant beauty of the Mekong Delta on a day trip from Ho Chi Minh city. Travel in an airconditioned minivan or bus and board a motorboat for a ride through islands on the Tien River. Enjoy a local lunch in an orchard and ride rowboat under coconut trees on the a Bao Dinh canal. Depart from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel and head to the Mekong Delta by minivan or bus. Pass by green rice fields before arriving at the beautiful rural My Tho. Your morning trip continues from here by motorized boat on the Tien River to the Qui (Tortoise islet). On the way, see the fishing port, boat-building workshops, and the Dragon, Phoenix, and Unicorn Islet. Walk into the village, where you can visit a local fruit garden and enjoy the tropical fruit while listening to Southern Vietnamese folk music performed by islanders. Join in the daily activities that the locals do and take in the atmosphere of this beautiful natural countryside. Visit the bee house, and take the picture of the pythons. Lunch will be served right in the heart of the orchard garden. The boat cruise will lead you through the Bao Dinh canal, entering Ben Tre province — the land of coconuts. Here you'll see a typical agricultural model called "Garden – Pond – Cage” before visiting the coconut candy-making shop. Next, enjoy a rowing boat trip on the small canal, fully covered by the shadow of the water coconut trees. After your boat ride, take a bike ride around the island before returning to the bus.

It was very convenient -- pick up in morning and drop off in D1 area. Comfortable transportation and transfers between bus - boat - tuktuk. Exposed to variety of experiences such as traditional/local music, traditions, and food. Great tour guide -- Alex was a history teacher that had much to share about the history and culture of Vietnam. Helps elevate the tour beyond mere sightseeing, and gives better context to the sites we visited. :)

A wonderful adventure with My wife. Mr Lan (Unicorn) was a fantastic guide and kept everyone informed and amused. We loved it and highly recommend it. Many thanks to Mr Lan and the driver for a great day out. See you again soon. The Aussies ;)
