8:30am: The guide pick you up at your hotel and depart for Ben Tre. Arrive at Ham Luong dock, you will board the boat & cruise along Ham Luong River, a tributary to the Mekong River. The cool breeze from the river and lush tropical islands along its banks will immediately get you excited to explore all the great things ahead. You will visit various local workplaces to find many wonderful examples of how local people use ageless techniques to create their crafts, including activated charcoal, dried coconut, handy coconut husk brooms, and many family businesses using coir, or coconut fiber, to create amazing art. Drive around the village roads by “Xe Lôi”, the local vehicle, which is a kind of motorized rickshaw. Do a kayaking through the lush tropical canal.
Have a delicious and filling lunch at a local family. Then you will have time for relaxing time to relish the beautiful countryside or cycling around the village (this activity is an optional if time available and will be done by your own). Visit the local fruit plantation, enjoy seasonal fresh fruits, and spend time relaxing while being rowed in a small boat slowly through the natural canals to get a sense of how truly beautiful this area is. At the end of day, you will transfer back to Ho Chi Minh City. Drop you off at your hotel. Your journey with The Time Journeys is now complete…
