Ben Tre is a town in Vietnam's Mekong Delta region in the south. It is extremely underrated, but it is SO STUNNING. It's the perfect weekend trip from Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam and it allows you to fully submerse yourself in nature and get out of the city.
In this video, I'm taking you with me on a weekend trip from Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) to Ben Tre in Vietnam! Ben Tre is in Vietnam's Mekong Delta and since it's only 2 hours away from the capital, it's the perfect weekend trip from Ho Chi Minh.
It's about a 2-hour drive from Saigon filled with luscious greenery and Mekong River views. We spent 2 days exploring this beautiful area:
DAY 1: Boat tour to the islets on the Mekong Delta
DAY 2: Riding bicycles and exploring
