Description: The Mekong Delta is a unique region where life on the water has remained unchanged for centuries. Life on the delta revolves around the Mekong River, with its green expanses of paddy fields, thick orchards, and canals. Mekong River Delta is often referred to as a major granary of Viet Nam where three rice harvests are produced per year.
The fertile Mekong River Delta is also famous for its tropical fruits and flowers. The Delta area in the south of Viet Nam marks the end of a 4,500km journey made by the Mekong River after having traveled through six countries. Boating along a vast network of canals and channels is the traditional way of local people here. My Tho is known as a launching pad for boat tours.

Existing alongside the high-rise hotels, shopping malls and chic restaurants of Ho Chi Minh city, we drive to My Tho with paddy fields, thick orchards and canals. Upon arriving, we get on our private boat, which shall start off by driving us to Turtle island, a beautiful island with many orchards.
Here we can enjoy a variety of tropical fruits while listening to traditional South Vietnamese folk songs performed by local artists. Then, we are going on a short horse cart ride to a Bee Farm, where we can play with the pythons, try some honey tea, and taste local confectionery. After that, we will have a short rowing boat ride to our main boat, which in turn will take us to Phoenix island that was the lonely bastion of Coconut Monk. We have lunch here before go back to the harbor.
Drive back to Ho Chi Minh. End of trip.
