Full description
After being picked up from your hotel at 8 AM by your private car and tour guide, drive for 2-hours out of Saigon to the port. Take a leisurely cruise on the Tien River to see 4 islets which are represented as four mythical animals in Southeast Asia: Dragon, Kirin, Tortoise, and Phoenix.

Visit a honey bee farm and taste a delicious honey tea with lemon known for its health properties. If you are feeling adventurous, take the opportunity to stop at a local python farm where you can touch the snakes and take photos with them. Continue to a coconut candy workshop to see how the delicious candies are made by hand.

Next, listen to some Don Ca Tai Tu, a genre of traditional folk music. Relax on a rowing boat cruise as you journey through a mangrove palm canal. Continue the trip with a horse-drawn carriage ride through the village to experience the way locals traveled in the 19th-century. Finally, head to the Vinh Trang Pagoda in My Tho Town. This ancient building is considered to be the biggest and oldest pagoda in southern Vietnam and was influenced by Asian and Western architecture and culture. End the tour at around 5 PM where you will be returned to Saigon.
