Breakfast at the hotel.
Experience for the less travelled parts of the Mekong delta. Visit farms and workshops, slide down narrow canals on local sampan, ride a bicycle on rural bypaths, seize any chance for a friendly chat with locals and taste the mighty Mekong cuisine.
We arrive in Ben Tre about 10am and board a boat straight away for a nice cruise along the Ham Luong River. We go at easy pace and enjoy several stops en route to discover some traditional know-how of the region. They have been passed from generations to generations for centuries and practices were kept intact.
To end a busy morning and prepare for a slightly late lunch, we hop on bikes and start a leisure ride through forest and orchards. We reach a nice riverside restaurant and get ready to finally taste some typical cuisine of the Mekong delta. You will have a chance to prepare and cook a local dish: dried banana flower and enjoy the result.
The afternoon is dedicated to waterways exploration. On a sampan along narrow canals first, and then back on the boat to cruise back to the pier. We loop-the-loop in Ben Tre, and we start our drive back to Ho Chi Minh City.
Overnight in Ho Chi Minh City.
