A trip to Mekong Delta offers a glimpse into the unique and distinct agrarian life of the vibrant southern Delta region. We will enjoy a cruise along Mekong River to one of the Islands (located in the town of My Tho) where we will be entertained with traditional music while enjoying some tea sweetened with bee’s honey and seasonal fresh fruits.
We will then take a paddle-boat to cruise through the narrow canals of the Mekong. One interesting thing about transportation in this region is that mostly everybody here travels by boat, ships because the number of canals is very interlaced. Here a system of transportation on water is developed so much. Travelling on canals, we can discover many distinct things such as along with the banks, a number of coconut trees grow side by side, the atmosphere of travelling by boat brings good feelings for us.
The paddle-boat ride provides an interesting look into local cottage industry of making coconut candies. We will then have a lunch of ‘Elephant Ear’ fish combined with other delicious Vietnamese dishes – a local specialty. Hopefully, you can enjoy the fresh and comfortable atmosphere through your trip. Return to your hotel.
