Ben Tre is the best option for a day trip to the Mekong Delta from Ho Chi Minh City since it is only around 2 hours away, and 15 minutes from My Tho. However, this wonderful destination retains an authenticity that has been somewhat lessened in nearby My Tho.


  1. Coconut Groves and Orchards: Ben Tre is famous for its lush coconut groves and fruit orchards. Take a boat ride along the small canals and witness the picturesque scenery of palm trees, fruit-laden branches, and serene waterways. You can visit local fruit orchards, learn about the cultivation of tropical fruits, and savor fresh, juicy produce.
  2. Coconut Candy Production: Ben Tre is renowned for its coconut candy, a delicious sweet treat made from fresh coconuts. You can visit local workshops and witness the process of making coconut candy, from husking coconuts to cooking and wrapping the candies. Don’t forget to sample some of these tasty treats and even try making your own.
  3. Ecotourism and Nature: Explore the natural beauty of Ben Tre by cycling or walking through the countryside. Enjoy the tranquility of the area, passing by rice fields, small villages, and bamboo bridges. You can also visit the Dong Khoi Eco-Tourism Village, which offers activities like rowing traditional wooden boats, fishing, and experiencing the daily life of local farmers.
  4. Boat Trips and Canoeing: Take a boat trip along the Ben Tre River and its tributaries to discover the hidden gems of the region. Cruise through the narrow canals, lined with coconut trees, and observe the local way of life along the riverbanks. You can also try canoeing, gliding through the calm waterways, and exploring the smaller channels that larger boats cannot access.
  5. Local Cuisine: Ben Tre is known for its delicious local cuisine, especially dishes featuring coconuts. Don’t miss the opportunity to try specialty dishes like coconut shrimp, coconut rice cakes, and coconut-based soups. Visit local restaurants or join cooking classes to learn how to prepare these authentic dishes yourself.

When visiting Ben Tre, take the time to explore the surrounding countryside, interact with the friendly locals, and enjoy the tranquility of the Mekong Delta. It’s an opportunity to experience the authentic rural charm of Vietnam and create lasting memories of your trip.
