Your day starts bright and early at 5:30 AM when your English speaking guide picks you up from your hotel.
The first stop is at a chocolate factory that allows local Mekong farmers to ship their delicious produce to the four corners of the world.
See the process—from harvest to product—and allow yourself a sweet start to the day by sampling a variety of treats.
Next, you will board a traditional Vietnamese wooden boat and sail towards one of the nearby floating markets that have remained unchanged for centuries, and are among the region's most iconic attractions.
You will then sail into the narrow canals and take in the peace and serenity while your guide tells you about the area's historical and natural significance.
Before long, you will arrive at a small village where you'll visit an authentic Mekong Delta house.
You will have ample free time to take in the scenery, cycle around the village, and experience this region's every day wonders at your own pace.
Your journey concludes with a visit to a local market where you handpick all the ingredients that are necessary to your cooking class.
When you have found the perfect ingredients, you take them back to the village, where a local culinary master gives you a hands-on cooking class and teaches you how to prepare some mouth-watering Mekong Delta specialties.
After enjoying the delicious dinner you prepared with your friends and family, you will be driven back to Ho Chi Minh City, where you'll arrive at your hotel at roughly 7 PM.
