When our hotel offered this package tour, we didn't expect any adventures here other than sailing thru one of the longest rivers in the world, the Mekong. We're wrong. First, we boarded a long-tail boat and headed to honey bee farm for some demonstration on honey bees and Vietnamese honey tea tasting. You also get to mingle with some village folks here with their workshops selling indigenous products. As you go around, you'll find exotic fruits like the durian. You will be served with platters of local fruits like dragon fruit and ripe mangoes accompanied by live local music and dance. Then on to sampan boat ride, the loveliest part of this Mekong trip. You pass thru narrow canals with canopy of palms and beautiful mangroves. Drop by a coconut candy factory and try their numerous sweets. Thenafter, ride on a horse-driven cart to a sumptuous lunch in a nearby village. Finally, board on a motorized small boat coasting thru small water channels back to Mekong River. Awesome trips in this southern part of Vietnam.

The Mekong River Cruise was wonderful. We loved having our own small boat to travel around the Mekong Delta. We traveled through the small canals and saw fishermen and the way local people live. We got to see coconut candy being made which was also interesting. On the same day, we went to a place for lunch that served elephant ear fish that turned out to be delicious albeit not too pretty to look at! Besides that, we took a horse and buggy ride through a small village. The day was relaxing and pretty much free of tourists. We loved it!
