DAY 1: SAIGON - BEN TRE - CAN THO (L) Pick up at your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City then take about a two hours drive to Ben Tre. On arrival at Hung Vuong pier - the boat will cruise along the Ham Luong river (a branch of the Mekong) and stop at various local workplaces to give you a picture of how the local economy works, including a brick-kiln, where bricks are still painstakingly made by hand; a coconut processing workshop, where you can sample fresh coconut and see how every single part of this versatile nut is turned into food and other products; and a mat weaving house, where straw mats are woven using a hand loom – you can even have a go at weaving yourself. You will then hop onto a bicycle for a 9.5 mile (15 km) fun ride through the quiet and beauty country lane to Mr Khanh’s local house where you can contemplate a antiques pottery collection. Then stop at a local restaurant for a delicious and filling lunch, featuring such local specialties as elephant-ear fish and river shrimp, washed down with some cold drinks or beers. After lunch, it’s time to board on a rowing boat for a relaxing trip along narrow canals. Back to Hung Vuong Pier, take a way to Ham Luong, Co Chien ferry for Can Tho.
