The first place to visit is a remote, unspoiled area offering scenic views called Hoa Khanh. While watching people’s lives in the unique landscapes on the river, the crew brings you tea and seasonal fruits on the comfortable seat of the sampan.
Local houses along the river are still made of traditional wood and palm leaves. On the banks of the river, you can observe some large rice fields, many fishing nets available, a typical fishing method in the Mekong Delta.
In Hoa Khanh, firstly you have an opportunity to take a bicycle and go sightseeing around the countryside. If you do not like to ride, you can choose to go for a walk or take a rest on board instead.
Taking cycling around the countryside, you have a chance to visit Ba Kiet Ancient House which is located on an area of 1000 m2, right in the middle of the orchard of 1.8 ha in Phu Hoa. As one of the most ancient houses in the South of Vietnam, it is decorated in typical traditional style with all the walls, columns, and furniture made of wood. It is surrounded by an abundant garden with many tropical fruit trees and flowers.
After visiting the old house, you have activities to study local cottage industries such as making of coconut candy and puffed rice (something like popcorn). You can try these specialties and buy for souvenirs. Simple living and hospitable people in peaceful space will make your soul comfortable and relaxed.
When finishing your exploration of local people work, we bring you an exciting experience in lunchtime. The lunch is served at Le Longanier Restaurant which is an exquisite colonial-style villa in a lush tropical garden with many fruit trees by the river.
