Only 90 minutes driving from Saigon, you will be in the center of Ben Tre city, an attractive destination not only for its eco-tourism but also for its culture. Being one of the 13 delta provinces in the Mekong Delta, Ben Tre is home to coconut trees known as the "Coconut land of Vietnam" which is composed of three islands: Minh, Bao and An Hoa island.

The town’s sleepy waterfront, lined with aged villas, is easy to explore on foot, as is the rustic settlement across the bridge to the south of the center. This is also a good place to experience boat trips in the area. Moreover, the riverside path and the narrow lanes on both sides of the river are ideal for cycling.
