Day 1:
Riding pillion with our drivers to escape from Saigon to the off road, we delve deep into the Ben Tre province of southern Vietnam and explore the tour Loving Mekong Delta. Driving back roads mostly through villages away from the tourist track and discover the real life of people living along this magic river. We take quiet laneways and dirt paths weaving in and out of villages and fields waving to kids whizzing by on their way to school, saying “Xin Chao” (hello) to women pedalling gracefully in their traditional “ao dai” dresses, and hopping onto small ferries to cross the tributaries alongside elderly vendors carrying groceries on their bikes.

Later we continue tour Loving Mekong Delta by boarding our private boat and cruising past some interesting places such as old style brick kiln before stopping at a coconut processing workshop where you learn step by step how the locals waste nothing from the coconut tree in making a variety of products, handicrafts and candy. Transferring to bicycle we cycle along trails under the green canopy of coconut plantation before stopping for a pleasant lunch of local specialities of tour Loving Mekong Delta, including delicious “Elephant Ear fish”. After lunch we will row a sampan along the tree lined canals to get a closer look at life. We are on the road again for another 100km, over night stay in 4 star hotel.

Day 2:
We continue to explore the waterways tour Loving Mekong Delta with a morning boat ride to the bustling Cai Rang floating market. As we weave amongst the anchored boats, we’ll see vendors line up their boats and hang fruit or vegetables on a bamboo pole advertising the goods they are selling. Moving on from the floating market we will visit an inland market to compare the differences as well as noodle factory nearby.

After that it’s time to explore the land with a motorbike ride through farming villages and small laneways on the way to the border town of Chau Doc. This area of Mekong Delta is inhabited by Vietnamese as well as people from the Khmer and Cham ethnic groups, part of the rich tapestry of ethnic minorities in Vietnam, their customs and traditions enriching the culture and so often seen in their houses, pagodas, mosques. We will also see some of the product that is exported worldwide and that people here are proud of – rice and Basa fish. After lunch, we explore the fishing village and fish farms. The day is completed by panoramic sunset views over the Mekong Delta floodplains from the summit of Sam Mountain.

Day 3:
We leave Chau Doc behind and drive along a quiet road to Tra Su bird sanctuary, low land national park with mangrove forest as far as the eye can see, interwoven with canals and many thousands of birds. We’ll have a drink and decide between climbing to top of the observation tower to enjoy the panoramic view of the scenery below, or a cruise along mangrove lined canals of the forest to get close to the fauna in the park. After the visit to Tra Su, we’ll stop for picnic lunch en route before heading back to Saigon, arriving at around 6.00 pm.
