Ben Tre Mekong Gateway Full Day


08:00: We will start your journey from Saigon to Ben Tre Province with a pickup from your hotel. Along the way to Ben Tre, you can view the natural beauty of forests and the local's daily life.

Your adventure continues with a scenic cruise along the Ham Luong River. This is one of nine estuaries that characterize the Mekong Delta. The river offers a romantic setting for you to relax and take in the natural beauty.

During the cruise, tourists will have a chance to stop by a local coconut workshop. You will have the opportunity to watch the fascinating process of making elaborate traditional products and meet friendly Ben Tre people. This firsthand experience allows you to gain insights into the local craftsmanship.

A leisurely walk through a mat-weaving house awaits, where you can observe the intricate art of mat-weaving and learn more about this item that plays an important role in the spiritual life of Southern people. Additionally, you can enjoy the tasty local fruits and a refreshing cup of tea.

Next, you will hop aboard a 'xe loi' (motorized rickshaw) or bicycle to observe locals in their everyday lives and verdant fruit orchards during the journey.


After a delicious riverside lunch, we will set sail on a sampan boat, navigating narrow canals. While winding through magnificent landscapes, we will have the opportunity to see a variety of plant species on both sides of the canals.

Around 17:00, we will head back to your Saigon hotel or onward to your next destination. Thank you for choosing us!

Outstanding assistance from Ms. Hang/Moon
