Welcome to Mekong Delta to experience the peace of the life in real countryside. Mekong Delta is a watery landscape in the south of Vietnam. This is not only the perfect place to enjoy the beauty of green rice fields stretching to the horizon and the appealing of orchard gardens and specialties, but also the suitable destination to have a chance to explore the system of crisscrossed brown canals and rivulets by boats.
At 7:45 - 08:00 AM, the guide and car will pick you up at the hotels in the central 1 district and depart from Ho Chi Minh City to My Tho City. A smooth routine on bus ride, passing the green rice fields, will lead you to the beautiful rural My Tho City.

Then the amazing rowing boat trip on the small canal - fully covered by the shadow of the water coconut’s tree and cool breezes - will become your unforgettable memories.
A lunch with traditional Vietnamese Food such as elephant-ear fish and river shrimp, washed down with some cold drinks or beers will be served right in the heart of the orchard garden. The food here is well prepared, decorated and delicious as well.
