We will have an early start since at 08:00AM we will leave Ho Chi Minh City. We will go on a one hour drive to My Tho Town. On our way there we will enjoy watching the beautiful sights of the green rice fields, the peaceful Vàm Cỏ Dong river and the busy Long An town.
Once we will have arrived to My Tho Town we will visit the Vinh Trang pagoda, the oldest one in Southern Vietnam, also known as the largest pagoda. It has the most special architecture in Mekong Delta since it was influenced by Vietnamese and Khmer’s culture, as well as European’s architecture.
Afterwards we will be taking the bus to the pier where we will be getting on a motorbike boat. We will take a relaxing boat ride on Tien river during which we will enjoy the fresh air, we will discover the peaceful life of the local people and we will pass by the stilt houses, the fishing floating farm and the four famous islands (Dragon,
Phoenix, Tortoise, and Unicorn).
We will be having lunch in the orchard garden. If you wish to taste a strange, new dish, do not forget to order the Mekong Delta specialty, the dried Elephant Ear Fish.
Afterwards we will return to the bus and we will head back to the city. We will arrive in Ho Chi Minh City at around 05:30PM.
We can end this spectacular day by visiting the Bitexco Financial Tower and the Sky Deck!
