Returning to Vinh Long, Ben Tre experienced going to the monkey bridge once, wearing a Ba Ba shirt to the pond to slap fish in the garden

If suddenly one day you want to try to be a farmer playing around in the fruit gardens, why not go to the West to experience these rustic things?

The West has been a rich land since ancient times with interlaced rivers filled with fish and alluvium, creating gardens of fragrant flowers and sweet fruits. Coming to the West to play is not only sitting on a boat to watch the cool canals, listening to the resounding folk music, or visiting the bustling floating market. But the memories of the West will be enriched with the monkey bridge across the river, fruit-laden fruit trees, and dinghy in peaceful tourist spaces.

Garden ecotourism is increasingly developing in the Mekong Delta region with the popular model of planting fruit trees, releasing fish in ponds or canals. The form of tourism attracts visitors by its rustic and idyllic features. When coming here, visitors can experience entertainment activities and feel the Southern culture. It is this that makes ecotourism in the garden attractive not only to Vietnamese people but also to foreign tourists.

It will be extremely interesting to have the opportunity to come here, wear a traditional grandmother to participate in interesting folk games and then “roll up your pants” to go down the ditch, slap the pond to catch fish. You will become a real farmer when catching fish hiding in the water with your own hands. The model of ecotourism in the garden has become familiar with the large-area fruit orchards “storks flying straight”. This is considered a typical river culture that is rarely found anywhere else.
