The tour was amazing. We had an awesome time socializing with the people of Mekong as we explore their beautiful islands. Highly recommended for those who want a hassle-free travel. Kudos to Mr. Yen for being a helpful guide.More
7: 30 AM: Pick up at hotels located centrally and direct towards My Tho Town, lying along the left side of Mekong River. Upon arrival, visit Vinh Trang pagoda which sated back to the late 19th century. Then boarding the sampan and cruising down the river around the four beautiful islands known as Dragon, Unicorn, Phoenix and Tortoise islands.
The first stop is at Unicorn Island. Step ashore and go for a stroll in tranquil village paths while witnessing fruit plantations of the Delta region. Walk inside a garden to savor fresh fruit and perceive the quintessence of Vietnamese traditional folk music through songs performed by local people with the classical instruments.
Step onto small rowing sampans and submerge into the breeze with the cool shadow of above palm tree vaults while being rowed through narrow canals. After that, stop at a bee-keeping farm and sample a tiny glass of honey tea & pollen. Also, visit a family coconut fudge mill to see how mighty the locals’ business is.
Have lunch with culinary delights at a local restaurant. Return to the boat for Ho Chi Minh City and end the trip.
