The lush delta is really a gift from the Creator for almost 20 million inhabitants living and working on the lower section of one of the longest rivers on earth, providing rice, fruit, and aquatic products for the worldwide market. This fertile area is where the mighty Mekong River approaches the sea and splits into nine very big branches and then into a network of hundreds of tributaries. We call it “Cuu Long” or “Nine dragon’s river delta”.
Riding pillion with our drivers to escape from Saigon to the back road, we delve deep into the Ben Tre province of southern Vietnam and explore the Mekong Delta. Driving back roads mostly through villages away from the tourist track and discover the real life of people living along this magic river. We take quiet laneways and dirt paths weaving in and out of villages and fields waving to kids whizzing by on their way to school, saying “Xin Chao” (hello) to women pedaling gracefully in their traditional “ao dai” dresses, and hopping onto small ferries to cross the tributaries alongside elderly vendors carrying groceries on their bikes.
Later we board our private boat and cruise past some interesting places such as old-style brick kiln before stopping at a coconut processing workshop where you learn step by step how the locals waste nothing from the coconut tree in making a variety of products, handicrafts, and candy.
Transferring to bicycle we cycle along trails under the green canopy of coconut plantation before stopping for a pleasant lunch of local specialties, including delicious “Elephant Ear fish”. After lunch, we will row a sampan along the tree-lined canals to get a closer look at life before taking our private boat back to the pier. We will ride back to Saigon with lots of photos and fond memories.
This tour requires an adventurous spirit and a strong backside.
