Luxury Travel Ltd, a long established Asian specialist in the art of travel, has launched Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta for a Day – Ben Tre.
Ben Tre Province is a nice option for a day trip to the delta from HCM City as it is only two hours away, and a mere 15 minutes from the nearby My Tho City in neighbouring Tien Giang Province.
This picturesque and friendly Mekong Delta town has historically seen very few travellers, but the recent opening of a bridge connecting Ben Tre and My Tho has made it far easier for day trippers to visit from HCM City.
"While there, you can take a walk along the waterfront, lined with French era shops and houses and you'll see plenty of coconuts being unloaded from boats for dispatch around the country. Then, jump on a boat for a couple of hours of cruising on the Mekong River," advises Pham Ha, founder and CEO of Luxury Travel Ltd. — VNS
