The boat will take you onto a small canal, where you’ll leave hectic city life behind. Pass beneath coconut palms lining the canal on your way to Coconut Island in Ben Tre.
Disembark and enjoy a walk around the village, stopping to meet a local family and taste tropical fruit, honey tea, and honey wine. Enjoy the sounds of traditional Vietnamese music performed by the villagers.
Visit the village’s coconut candy shop, see how the candy is made, and also see some handicrafts made from coconut palm. Continue your walk through fruit orchards, admiring the flowers, trees, and other natural scenery.
Head to a local restaurant for lunch and enjoy special Vietnamese dishes. After lunch, have half an hour to relax in the shade of the trees, take another walk around the village or go biking.
Then it will be time to return to the ferry and head back to Ho Chi Minh City in the comfort of your VIP Ford Transit limousine. Be returned to your accommodation after the tour.
