Overview

It’s quite a great opportunity for visitors in Vietnam to experience such a breathtaking speedboat

trip through the Mekong Delta, where you are provided with a chance to eyewitness the river life of

local people and how they exchange fresh agricultural products as well as other commodities on the

floating market.

Highlights

Spend a day along the glorious Mekong River Delta by bus and boat. Discover a world of beauty at

Unicorn Island, travel past stilted houses, and spend some time at a bee farm relaxing with a honey

tea.

Program Details

Leaving Saigon we drive through pleasant countryside before arriving at Cu Chi. Before entering the

tunnels we watch a short introductory video showing how the tunnels were constructed. We then

spend the next hour exploring the maze of tunnels. Also on display are various mantraps and the

remains of an American tank as well as numerous bomb craters made by 500 pound bombs dropped

by B52 bombers. We then drive back to Ho Chi Minh City arriving at approximately 1pm.

Beginning in the morning, you will travel by bus to My Tho. From here, you will board a traditional

River boat to Unicorn Island. This boat trip passes past quiet villages and rural scenes that seem right

out of a picture book. The locals work silently along the banks as you sail towards a fisherman’s port,

complete with tall stilt houses.

You’ll have a chance to replenish your stomach with plenty of fresh fruits and local treats before we

stop at Turtle Island. Here, you leave the larger boat for a small row boat, where you can move

around a bit more like the locals!

After all of this traveling, it’s time to stop and relax a bit at a local bee farm, where you can sip tasty

tea with local honey. There is traditional music playing here that is typical only in Southern Vietnam.

From the bee farm we’ll travel to the coconut village, where you’ll grow to appreciate the versatility

of this meaty fruit. You’ll enjoy coconut candies and handcrafted coconut items before returning to

Saigon by bus.
