I was born and grown up in the South West of Vietnam (the Mekong Delta). After years of studying, working and living in other areas of Vietnam and oversea, I find out it's my hometown that I love best. And I hope to have chances sharing with you guys all the amazing experiences in such a peaceful area of Vietnam. Please come join me in these interesting activities: fishing, harvesting fruits & vegetable, drinking young coconut and enjoy the local traditional music...

  • This is my house, not a usual tourist spot. My house is infront of a river where you can go fishing on small boat with my daddy. You can also help my mom feeding chickens, ducks in the back yard. In my garden, we have lots of tropical fruits. My mom will cook the most yummy fresh traditional food for you. And the most important thing is that my parents are also folk artist. It means they play local traditional music (playing instruments and singing). At nights, I will show you one of the most lovely night market along the river (where people sell fresh fruit and street food at a super cheap price)

At nights, I will show you one of the most lovely night market along the river (where people sell fresh fruit and street food at a super cheap price)

First you come to my house in Mo Cay district, Ben Tre province

If you're from Ho Chi Minh City, I'll show you the bus to go to my hometown Ben Tre. It takes you only 2 hours by bus from HCM City to Ben Tre. The bus ticket is just about $3.5 for one way.

I'll pick up you right at the Ben Tre bus station and bring you home by motorbike or taxi (up to you).

At my house, first relax and drink special pandan flavor coconut, and fresh fruit in my garden.

Then you can go fishing on small boat with my daddy (sometimes with my twins brother)

While you go fishing, my mom will prepare the most delicious traditional food for you such as savoury pancake, duck porridge, chicken salad with banana flower...

Enjoy traditional local music by my parents

At nights, my parents will organize a small music band to play local traditional music (Also known as "Don Ca Tai Tu". They play instrument and sing in the most natural and lovely way.

After that, I'll show you the night market in Ben Tre City where people sell lots of tropical fruits and street foods at a very cheap price.

Fun of harvesting fruits in the garden

We have banana, papaya, coconut, lemon, sweet potatoes, eggplants, plum... in the garden

Learning to make spring rolls

You can watch and join us preparing traditional local foods.

Relaxing on the hammock

You can take a break, relax or even sleep on a hammock.

    Great experience with ease and her Family She made an appointement with us At Saigon because it s was simpler for we took You together a bus for its village She speaks english very well and adapted herself to our simplistic vocabulary...😉 It is a discovery, a generous sharing of their life. Her parents are shy because they do not speak English but we manage to understand by gestures. Daysie in agreed to receive us during the têt holiday and with them we tasted all the dished wich they eat for this opportunity. We prepared springer rolls with Daysie and her sister the first one for Daysie 😂 They shared with us one evening among their Neighbors an exit on the forraine party, a breakfast typifies to the market, a stroll on the mekong, tasting of fruits of its garden. Everything was completed and we still thank Daysie and suite her close friends for thèse wonderful moments which they were kund enough to make us discover. 👌🙆👏🙏

    I had a great time with Daisy, her husband, and her family. We left Saigon in the afternoon and once we arrived in Ben Tre, we explored the local markets and we ate some of her local favorites. We then went to her family's home in the rural area. What a big difference crossing a bridge makes! The area is beautiful and very peaceful. Coconut trees are everywhere (and very delicious:) ). Her family doesn't speak English, but they were welcoming and friendly. Over the evening and through the next afternoon, we ate a ton of food (she even helped me get some of my strange requests, e.g. Coconut rats), went on the boat and fishing with her father, listened to some local singing of her family, explored the local area, and just relaxed! I recommend this tour for those who want an alternative tour of the Mekong Delta; however, keep in mind that you will not see the floating market or other 'typical' sites. Thank you for everything Daisy!

    I've had an awesome time with Daisy and her family, you can't experience the Mekong Delta in a more authentic way. Daisy is a great girl, and I hope to see her again somewhen in Germany, Vietnam or else.

I know there are so many tours to Mekong Delta, but I would like to show you some reasons for choosing my trip. I and my family are local family in Mekong Delta. My parents are living there as farmers with a small bread store in the morning and a grape fruit garden, so what are more exciting than the experiences with local's life style? We are welcome you as a member in our family and of course, we always have a room to share with you in our home. I would like to offer you two ways to get there, by BIKE or LONG BUS. I am always willing to be your driver :D because I drive back there every weekend, you can enjoy the views on the way better. Bike will be a good choice if you would like to stay one day and one night there, but if you only have one day, I highly recommend you a very comfortable long Bus, then I will still have a Bike to drive you around there. If you would like to taste some traditional Vietnamese foods or you are gonna to join a class here, so now you will not need to do this if you book my trip. It's great if you can get up early to go to local market with me, pick up some materials and learn how to cook these tradition foods with the chief is my Mom and your assistant is me :D I get a menu for you as below pics My trip is the best way for you to get away from a trip with many other tourist and follow the tour guide during your trip. No, I am not your tour guide, I am your local friend, so I would like to experience with you on sailing boats to the islands, sit back on the horse wagon, visit coconut candy mills, selling breads, etc, All things I can do my best to show you This is ONE DAY trip, but I really recommend that you should spend 2 DAYS and ONE NGHTS here to enjoy the peaceful atmostphere as long as the traditional cuisines of local. So please contact me to get more info about the accomodation at my house for your best choice :D
