What to expect

The spectacular Mekong River flows 4,350 kilometers from its origins in the Himalayas through seven different countries, eventually spilling into the South China Sea. Flowing south from Ho Chi Minh City, the river leads to the pulsating Mekong Delta, an area teeming with wildlife and lush mangroves. Spend the day exploring this beautiful area and discovering how the local people of the region live in harmony with the mighty river.

A suggested itinerary for the day follows:

  • 8.00am: you will meet the guide at your hotel and you will be taken for a pleasant drive out of the busy city to Can Duoc Town
  • 8.45am: there will be a stop by Can Duoc market - a small rural market where locals sell specialties of their province. Walk around the market, buy some fruits for dessert after lunch time
  • 9.30am: transfer to Tan Hoa town, where you will see people drying rice, planting cabbage, and basking incense sticks. Take a break on the road to visit a local house and see how the people work. Take some pictures and enjoy the atmosphere of the countryside
  • 10.30am: you will pay a short visit to Tan Trung village and the beautiful and colorful Cao Dai temple. Then visit a 100-year-old temple
  • 11.30am: upon arriving in Tan Hoa, enjoy fresh coconut juice or sugarcane juice at a local garden, relax in a hammock, hop on the back of a scooter with your local driver and ride through remote villages and walk on the monkey bridge. Enjoy the lively but peaceful rural atmosphere
  • 12.15pm: drive to Tan Thanh beach (not for swimming) for a beautiful seafood lunch at a beachfront restaurant. Afterwards, you will drive from Tan Thanh to My Tho Pier (1 hour).
