Overview

Treating you to a taste of the Island Life in Vietnam, this tour regales you with two fantastic trails - visits to Phu Chau Floating Temple and Binh Quoi Village.

A 300 year old floating temple, the Phun Chau is truly a sight to behold. Holding its stance on the glistening waters of the Vam Thuat River, it is a well-known destination for spiritual enlightenment pilgrimages. Take in the breathtaking architecture as you get a true sense of the magnificence of Vietnam’s vibrant culture and local religions. 

The Binh Quoi village makes an equally surreal journey, presenting a scaled-down picture of the entire Mekong Delta. Enclosed in an enormous treasure trove of greenery, it regales you with its mesmerizing bustle of local life and endless natural beauty. Our road map begins at Saigon Newport from where we will cruise upstream to Saigon Bridge, go around Thanh Da Island and arrive at Binh Quoi Village. You’ll also be served fresh regional fruits and coconut juice once you arrive at the village.
