After watching a local cultural song and dance performance, we will take a slow walk through a fruit orchard, before embarking on a slow sampan ride through an interesting winding canal.

 

After leaving Unicorn Island, Phoenix Island beckons; the site of coconut candy workshop, where you can learn how coconut candy is processed by hand, and even buy gifts of pure coconut oil and other items.

 

Finally, we will visit Masjid Jami'ulmuslimin, the only mosque in My Tho, where we will break for Salat  according to local prayer times. After lunch at a local Halal restaurant, we will head back to Ho Chi Minh city.
