What you can expect

Treat yourself to a full day of sightseeing in the Mekong Delta region during a tour that combines avid sightseeing with a sampan and xe loi (rickshaw) ride. In the southern province of Ben Tre, float down a serene waterway, pausing at a local restaurant to sample regional recipes.

Get picked up from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel and journey south towards the Mekong Delta. Lauded for its flat floodplains and stunning biodiversity, the region where the Mekong Delta empties into the East Vietnam Sea is a sight to behold. Keep your eyes peeled for stands of coconut palms and banana trees nodding in the breeze as you arrive in Ben Tre. There, transfer to a small vessel known as a sampan.

The small, oar-powered craft is your conduit for discovering Ben Tre's vibrant waterways. Keep your eyes peeled for leopard geckos and thorny frogs while cruising towards a local village. There, choose to duck inside a range of different workshops, from a bustling brick kiln to a coconut processing plant. Feel your stomach begin to rumble as you catch sight of the milky druids on display.

From the village, embark on a xe loi (rickshaw) ride to a local restaurant serving up mouthwatering specialities, including river shrimp and fish. After refuelling, practice rowing the sampan through the Mekong River before returning to Ho Chi Minh in time for dusk.
