Coconut forests at My Tho

Saigon – My Tho – Ben Tre - 1 Day

The day trip from Saigon to My Tho and Ben Tre takes you to the gateway to the Mekong Delta in southern Vietnam.

Tien River
Highlights of the trip include a boat cruise through the coconut forests which are home to different communities who maintain an exotic lifestyle for centuries.

The Mekong Delta is the rice bowl of Vietnam. With crisscrossing river systems, the inhabitants in the Mekong Delta lead a very unique lifestyle: Almost all activities take place on the water.

Our tour starts from Ho Chi Minh City in the morning. We travel 70 km to My Tho City located on the Tien Giang River, the upper branch of the Mekong River in Vietnam. Upon arrival, we board our boat and have a chance to adore the verdant Mekong river between My Tho and Ben Tre. We'll have coconut milk, seasonal fruits, honey tea and lunch with excellent Vietnamese food in an orchard. Then, rejoin our car for the trip back to Ho Chi Minh City in mid afternoon.
