Discover Unicorn Islet & Ben Tre Island

Upon arrival into Tien Giang province, we board our private boat for a cruise to enjoy fantastic scenery of Mekong River, stop at Unicorn Islet where we will visit a local garden and get experiences of local life from a small house and daily activities. Life in the Mekong Delta revolves much around the river, and all the villages are often accessible by river as well as by road. After enjoying seasonal fruits and listening to traditional music, the boat takes us to Ben Tre province which is formed from 3 different islets such as An Hoa, Minh, and Bao islet. We stop on An Hoa islet to visit a local coconut candy family business and taste some candies – a special product in Mekong Delta, then take motor cart (about 08km) through coconut garden Phu An Hoa, sightseeing local people’s daily activities along villages paths to Vuon Dau for lunch.

Rowing Sampan & Guided Bike Ride

After the floating market, we’ll change to the rowing boats and go into the smaller, secluded canals of the delta. Here we can get up close and be a part of the daily life of local people and farmers. Next up, we get back on dry land while we visit Tan Phong island. After a quick stop-off at a tasty fruit orchard, we will experience the enchanting music of South-West Vietnam as we enjoy a local performance. We’ll also take a guided bicycle tour of this marvellous island. Along the way, we will visit local families and learn how they use the land to craft everything from delicate rice paper to the sturdy roofs of their homes. The families will treat us to Mekong delicacies for lunch which include freshly made spring rolls, fried pumpkin flower and beautiful braised pork soaked in coconut juice.
