Trip Info

From your hotel in Saigon, enjoy a pleasant private drive on a secondary road to Can Giuoc, 30 km. Pay a short visit to a beautiful and colourful local Cao Dai Temple, which has a combination of most of major religions on earth.

Another short drive will take you to Can Duoc market. It is a stunning rural market in an informal setting with friendly market-goers. Enjoy a short ride on My Loi ferry to cross Vam Co River. A drive to Go Cong then Tan Hoa, with some breaks to visit a couple of local legumes nurseries. You will see an unbelievable form of intensive labour, which has not changed over three generations! Seed by seed, they can make a farm of few hundred thousand of chili sprouts.

Upon arriving in Tan Hoa, you will enjoy a stunning and easy bike ride. You can choose to hop on the back of a scooter with your own driver. Drive through remote villages, dotted with coconut palm trees stretching along the paddy fields. A visit to Tan Thanh beach, a muddy beach, not for swimming, for a beautiful seafood lunch.

We will then drive from Tan Thanh to My Tho pier. Enjoy a fantastic cruise on the Upper Mekong, lined with many floating fish farms. At Ben Tre, you will then be transferred to a small sampan to wind through a lush green, picturesque and Amazon-like creek of Tan Thach. A trip on the Rach Mieu suspension bridge for a breath-taking view of the Upper Mekong and its islets.

You will be driven to your hotel in the early evening.

We look forward to guiding you!
