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.
