My Tho

About two hours travel (or 76 kilometers) from Ho Chi Minh City, on the banks of a northern arm of the Mekong river, is My Tho, which translates as "fragrant herb" where tourists come to discover the beauty of the delta. It's a quiet, prosperous city of about 100,000 inhabitants, famous for its many fruit orchards, gardens and the huge rice fields that surround it. The climate is warm and pleasant year round.
The surrounding countryside is home to one of the most luxuriant gardens of Vietnam, with its coconut palms, banana and mango trees. It is a nice place to stop and take a small boat trip on the Mekong to visit some of the nearby islands.

The best way to get to My Tho is to travel up the Mekong river from its mouth.

Vinh Trang pagoda, the market, the Dong Tam snake farm... The Toum Tiou gives you the opportunity to explore some really unusual places.
