Depart from Ho Chi Minh City around 08am, replacing the urban sprawl with endless rice paddy fields on this private transfer to the Mekong Delta.
 
We have about 2 hours transfer to MyTho city, the first town on the main branch of Mekong. We visit Vinh Trang Pagoda, the biggest one in the region that built early in 1894 to understand more about the religion. Keep driving to Rach Mieu suspension cabled-stay bridge opened since 2009 with its panorama view of the Mekong river.
 
On arrival in BenTre, we will get on a small wooden junk for cruising along Bentre river, a tributary of Ham Luong – the 4th branch of Mekong river. Sit back and relax on board, drift down the busy branch of the HamLuong and into picturesque canals to soak up the Delta scenery enjoying fresh coconut juice en route. Stop at a small brick kiln where locals still use centuries-old traditional methods to make the bricks by hand. Another stop at a coconut shell husking workshop, see the daily life of locals and try the hard work taking shell of the coconut that is unique to the region.
 
As we cruise inner the natural waterways, we visit a coconut-candy workshop, a main product that made BenTre famous before taking a walk for 500m on village road to visit a farmer workshop making sleeping mats, an old tradition hand weaving sedge mat or rush mat while having some seasonal tropical fruits. And now the Mekong adventure is on, see what life is really like for locals by explore the villages by hop on a motor cart. This adventure will be winding around the coconut palms, vegetable farms to a farmer house that we break for lunch with different courses of local food and relax.
 
In the afternoon, we explore a bit more of this village on foot for a 10 minute walk till we get on a wooden sampan for a paddling on small waterway. This hand-rowing sampan slowly cruise under the canopy of water coconut palms along hidden maze of small, sun-dappled canals gaining an insider's perspective on daily river life.
Re-board the wooden junk for half an hour cruising back to local boat station where our car is waiting. Drive back to Saigon at 5pm.
