Many villages and towns depend on the countless canals, tributaries and markets in the region for produce. As well as fish, produce yielded by the Delta’s rich alluvial soil includes rice, sesame, peanuts, cashews, pineapples, dragon fruit and durian.
As part of the tour, you will visit a bustling riverside market overflowing with Delta produce, which you can sample. There will be lots interesting and colorful photos opportunities!
You will then visit a brick atelier, a coconut candy and a weaving mat workshops. Then you’ll explore small canals of Ben Tre by boat.
