Journey to My Tho Island and the heart of the Mekong Delta on a narrated cruise and a sampan ride. Sample a tropical fruit assortment, as My Tho is famous for its fruit plantations. Visit a traditional Delta home and learn local customs. Often, there are three generations of one family living under one roof. You'll also take a tour of a coconut-candy factory. Visit the house where the candy is made and learn the process of this sweet sticky candy production. Vietnamese coconut candy is a sweet treat that comes in many flavors and makes a great souvenir. Enjoy local singers singing traditional Vietnamese folk songs. The musical accompaniment includes a one-string Vietnamese instrument called a "dan bau." For lunch, you'll be served traditional Delta cuisine at a local restaurant before leaving My Tho to return to your ship.

Special Notes:

This tour involves extensive walking as well as entering and exiting small motor launches. Not recommended for guests in wheelchairs or with limited mobility.

The journey to My Tho is approximately three to four hours each way depending on traffic.
