Detailed Itinerary
  Mekong Delta Exploring:   
Your day begins early with 7h30 collection from your hotel before heading along the road to Tien Giang. Upon arrival you will board a boat to escort you between the four mythical islets of Dragon, Unicorn and Paradise, situated on the Tien River in the Mekong Delta. The river is seen as an ideal place to check the pulse of the Mekong’s warm, earthy heartbeat, a flourishing centre of culture, commerce and pure natural beauty.

As the journey from islet to islet, you will experience a range of cultural activities unique. Share lunch with the local people, sip traditional herbal tea or the infamous snake wine, listen to the traditional Vietnamese folksong and sample seasonal fruits. The boat will travel along Xep canal, where you will visit the traditional houses comprised entirely of coconut wood at Quoi An village, whose residents are also expert carvers of coconut handicrafts and spinners of coconut candy.

You’ll take a horse-drawn cart along the village path to Ben Truc orchard to taste some of the fresh local produce. Further along you’ll visit a bee farm and savor the thick sweetness of Vietnamese honey courtesy of the efforts of buzzing, pint-sized workers.

Time for the drive back to Saigon, your arrival estimated at around 5pm.
