Take a private journey to My Tho, a city on the water in the heart of the Mekong delta. Spend a day in the beautiful Vietnamese countryside, spotting vast rice fields, riding a boat down the Mekong River, and visiting the Vinh Trang Temple.
Head out of Ho Chi Minh City and travel to My Tho, considered the heart of the entire Mekong delta region. On your way, stop at the Vinh Trang Temple, a Buddhist site featuring ancient bronze statues and a colonial history. Pause along the banks of the river Tien, the northern artery of the Mekong River.
Take a boat trip on the Mekong River to a workshop where handmade crafts and sweets are produced from coconuts. A short ride on a horse carriage brings you to one of the many nearby orchards, where you taste homemade honey tea, savor fresh seasonal fruits, and enjoy traditional live music.
Board a sampan boat and explore the smaller arms of the river, observing daily life along the banks. Afterward, mount a bike for a ride on quiet rural roads, passing many orchards, rice fields, villages, bridges, and canals. Lunch is served at a local restaurant before you drive back to Ho Chi Minh City.
