Ben Tre is a lovely little town. Not touristy at all. If you like river views and quiet long walks in a friendly environment, this is a place for you.

Cleaner than the big city, on the river, plenty of opportunity to browse or by local produce and products and it’s beautiful in the country sides.

I stayed in a homestay in Ben Tre but maybe I choose the wrong place ;-). It is very quiet and there is nothing to do just relaxing! So you should find a good place to stay when you are here!

Worth a trip to get a taste of real Vietnam. Quite easy to get here on the bus from HCMC. Lots of roadside eateries. Bike is a good way to get around.

If you're driving on your own, on google maps, you'll see an interstate that goes straight through My Tho and takes you there, hard to get lost. If looking for a bus, Bui Vien has plenty of options.
