Sights & Highlights

Day 1

Ho Chi Minh City to Ben Tre (140 KM)

Avoiding the freeway, we drive to Ben Tre using quiet shortcuts. On the way we stop at the Cu Chi tunnels, an impressive tunnel network that was used by the Vietcong during the Vietnam War, to outwit the American soldiers. In My Tho we visit an incense factory and the impressive Vĩnh Tràng temple complex. In Ben Tre we cook and eat together with the host family at the homestay.

Day 2

Ben Tre to Tra Vinh (80 KM)

After breakfast we explore Ben Tre by bicycle, so you can see how the locals work and live. You can learn how to make a coconut mat, cut your own coconut candy or taste one of the many Mekong fruits. By fishing boat we take a trip on one of the many canals of the Mekong river. Afterwards we take the motorbikes and ride along the river bank to Tra Vinh for the night, this time in a hotel.

Day 3

Tra Vinh to Can Tho (100 KM)

In Tra Vinh we find some of the most beautiful Buddhist temples of South Vietnam, made by Cambodians. In the morning we visit some of them before we get back on the motorbike to continue our way. Along the way we have many stops. In Can Tho you have some time for yourself. Have a traditional Vietnamese slow coffee or take a walk along the boulevard while watching the sun sink into the water. In the evening we eat ‘hot pot’ together, the Vietnamese version of fondue.

Day 4

Can Tho via Rach Gia to Phu Quoc Island (3-4 hours by bus + 2,5 hours by boat)

Early in the morning we visit the floating market of Cai Rang, the largest floating market in South Vietnam, and a rice noodle factory.

A luxury bus will take you to Rach Gia Port, where you’ll arrive around one o’clock in the afternoon. An hour later you can take the speedboat to Phu Quoc Island, where you can reminisce on the beach about the past days you spent in the Mekong Delta.
