Hi guys, this is Po here, founder of the experience which you currently are looking at. Experience is something that hard to describe by words, which can only tell by feelings only.

I love food, love to travel, love to see new more thing on Earth so I traveled a lot, ate a lot, saw a lot, and mostly experienced the true beauty of Earth; so I could deeply understand what you really need to experience in one new place. Vietnam, and especially Saigon is my love and my life. She brings not only joy, also many magnificent feelings throughout my days here. Join me not to see, but to feel and enjoy my experience with Saigon and then you will love the place as how I always love, especially the River of Mekong Delta.

Sometimes I host the Cu Chi Tunnels Experience. My other co-hosts, Quy will be taking you on the trip.

I was really impressed with this day tour and highly recommend it to everyone! Quy was our guide and he was super friendly, happy, chatty and thoughtful. Po kept in contact all day making sure we were happy and that we had arrived at the right places. This was the standout thing for us actually as a mum travelling with my daughter (12) safety is my biggest concern. We felt safe and cared for every step of the way. What an incredible experience to visit these amazing local spots that we would never get to see otherwise. The rowboat was fantastic, watching the locals row past was a real buzz. Then a surprise horse carriage trip down country lanes to the most beautiful home stay with gorgeous gardens and lovely friendly hosts who made us a delicious lunch. Then onto bicycles through the village along the river. Absolutely beautiful. Thank you Quy for making us feel so happy and welcome. Thank you Po for organising such a memorable trip for us certainly a day we will never forget 💜

나는 15만원, 약 300만동을 지급하였습니다. 어른2명, 아이1명 처음에는 버스로 타로 간다고 했다가 항의를 하니까 개인 렌트카로 메콩강을 왔다갔다 했습니다. 다행스럽게도... 가이드는 훌륭했지만. 가격이 다른 곳보다 비쌉니다. 1. 렌트카 100만동(왕복, 미토-호치민) 2. 입장료 및 식사비로 200만동이였는데... 3. 당신입장에소는 30만동으로 버스비 왕복 그리고 메콩강 투어가 가능한 여행 상품도 있습니다. 4. 가이드가 잘해서 개별팁을 챙겨주면.... 5. 한국분들은 좀 더 알아보시면 메콩강 로컬현지투어 상품도 있을겁니다. 6. 나는 어른2명. 아이1명에 물론 개인 렌트카(포튜나)로 다녀왔지만, 8시간 메콩강 투어에 3,000,000 VND를 지급하였습니다. 이것이 합리적인 가격인지는 당신이 판단하시면 될 것 같습니다.

알찬 투어입니다! 오전 7시 30분에 호치민에서 출발해서 미토로 버스로 약 1시간 30분 정도 이동하면 배를 타고 이동하게 됩니다. 유니크 아일랜드라 해서 들어가면 찻집에서 과일을 먹으며 티타임을 갖습니다. 가게 안에 전통음악으로 공연하시는 분이 계신데 한국인왔다며 아리랑을 불러주시더라구요:) 이어 양봉하는 것 보고(꿀이랑 로열젤리 판매합니다) 배타고 강을 이동하며 다른 섬으로 들어갑니다. 코코넛 사탕 제조 과정을 보게 되는 데 사탕보단 엿에 가까운 맛과 식감입니다. 그리곤 마을 내부를 마차를 타면서 구경하고, 자전거로 직접 구경하는 코스도 있습니다. 코코넛 야자수가 굉장히 많아서 개인적으로 자전거 타고 구경했던 게 너무 좋았습니다. 저녁 식사는 생선 튀김을 먹었고, 비린내없이 잘 먹었습니다. 이후 2시에 메콩강 삼각주 섬 내부에서 출발했습니다. 이동시간 대략 3시간정도를 제외하면 5시간 코스라고 보시면 되고, 알차면서도 지치지 않는 구성입니다. 추천드려요👍

This was an excellent and unique experience. Quy was our host for the day while Po coordinated rides and oversaw the experience. The highlight was enjoying a home cooked meal at Quy’s house after a bike ride around his home town. We have several unplanned stops that included trying fresh pomelo and when is rained during our bike ride we popped into a pagoda to wait out the rain and learned more about Quy’s personal connections to the pagoda. A very special experience we wouldn’t have been able to enjoy on our own.

I would definitely recommend this experience. It’s a suuper beautiful, authentic place with a unique vibe. There were only 2 of us and I appreciate that Po arranged the trip despite this fact. Our guide was Quy, very nice and caring guy. His hometown is in Mekong Delta and he told us a lot about this place. Also, it was very fun and Quy took some nice photos of us. :) When the guide is a local it’s kinda soulful and really differs from other tours. Thank youu ~
