We’ll tell you all about those in another article).

Your car/van runs across Rach Mieu Bridge, the bridge connecting the two banks of a tributary of the Mekong River. When you see coconut forests and just coconut, that’s when you came to Ben Tre. Stop at a rice husk brick kiln. The people here will show you how to make bricks and tiles manually.

The cruise ship runs slowly to allow us to enjoy the 2 river banks, hidden behind rows of water-coconut trees.
