Destination: My Tho
Located just two hours south of Saigon, My Tho is a quaint and charming town situated on lush land next to one of the rushing and gushing branches of the mighty Mekong River. My Tho has an intriguing history with Khmer, Chinese and Vietnamese elements and influence in both architecture and cuisine. And speaking of cuisine, My Tho is renowned for its own Banh Mi and Hu Tieu (sandwiches and vermicelli soup) with a uniquely savory taste not found anywhere else. You can also continue your culinary experience by visiting one of the many fruit orchards or coconut candy factories to sample and savor the local delicacies. If eating isn’t your thing, hop on a peaceful sampan boat for a mesmerizing row through the jungle with your friends! A short stop in My Tho is not to be missed!
