08.00 AM. ViTravel’s guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel then bring you out for the city exploration.
Start with a visit to the city’s most iconic building: Reunification Hall.

In the afternoon, let’s drive to districts 5 and 6 to explore China Town and its famous relics as Thien Hau Temple – which was built by the Chinese who came earlier by seaway to dedicate the Goddess of the Sea. Explore the highlights of this fascinating area, beginning with intricate friezes, carved tableau and impressive incense coils that make for some great photos. Then observe street life through the narrow streets to Binh Tay market that sells everything from clothes to dried squid. Then head back to district one to visit the last destination of the tour: Ben Thanh market where you can see lots of shops selling clothing, souvenirs, fruits, and flowers…a good place to try your bargaining skills.

HCMC – Mekong Delta – HCMC (B/L)

Early morning, let's departure for Ben Tre province. The drive is about 1,5 hours long.

Ben Tre province is the gateway to the Mekong Delta – the home to about 20 million people and the largest rice barn in the country. At Huu Dinh Hamlet, take a tri-motorcycle ride down narrow village roads to explore the lush surroundings of rice paddies and fruit farms before boarding the cruise ship where a refreshing coconut welcome drink awaits as you enjoy rustic river scenes.
Shore excursions include a small home factory making handicrafts from Ben Tre’s famous coconuts and a brick workshop where bricks are made by hand using centuries-old traditional methods.
Take a 5-7km (3-4mi) bicycle trip around Phong Nam village on flat trails with stops at a rice noodle factory and the home of a local family where you can observe local life while sampling tropical fruit and honey tea.

Explore some of the Delta’s famed waterways via rowing sampan boat before enjoying lunch at a very cozy restaurant.

After lunch, we continue to bike around the area to immerse in the tranquillity and fresh air of the delta before heading back to busy HCMC and visiting some other local families as you want.
