Let yourself be captivated by the beautiful Buddhist Temple of Vinh Trang and explore the enchanting natural landscapes of the Mekong River Delta on this day trip from Ho Chi Minh City.
Vinh Trang Pagoda & Mekong Delta Tour Itinerary
Having been picked up from your hotel, you'll leave Ho Chi Minh City behind and head deep into the verdant countryside of southern Vietnam, in the direction of My Tho. Here, you'll find one of the region's most beautiful monuments: the Vinh Trang Pagoda.
The Buddhist temple of Vinh Trang stands out for its magnificent architecture. Take the time to admire each of its exquisite details, appreciating it as an incredible example of Southeast Asian temple art. The pagoda grounds are also home to a number of statues of Bonda: the enormous Happy Buddha, or "Bo Dai" in Vietnamese, is particularly impressive.
After marvelling at the monumental Vinh Trang Pagoda, you'll be taken to the My Tho river port, where you'll board a boat to set sail on the Mekong Delta and its canals. Throughout your cruise, you'll enjoy the passing luscious green landscapes as well as the awe-inspiring floating markets. The fresh fruits and sweets look so delicious... don't worry, you'll have the opportunity to indulge in a tasting of the local produce!
Continue your boat trip on the Mekong Delta to a restaurant located next to the riverbank. Here, you'll renew your energy with a tasty typical Vietnamese meal including various regional specialities made with rice and vegetables.
Following your meal, you'll have time to relax and enjoy the beauty of the surrounding area, before making the return journey back to Ho Chi Minh City.
