Thoi Son Islet
This small islet located downstream on the Tien River, one of the two tributaries of the Mekong River in Vietnam, which the province is named after. One of must do activities here is take a boat ride under coconut canopies along canals that zigzag through the islet, otherwise you can take a horse and cart to visit around.
Orchards which fruit between July and October also is famous thing of this place.
This Buddhist pagoda is hidden in an orchard of nearly two hectares (4.9 acres) outside My Tho, the provincial capital. The scenic backdrop adds to the religious experience, and the pagoda combines Asian and European designs.
The flower village in Man Dinh Hong is four kilometers (2.5 miles) to the west of My Tho. It is the main supplier of flowers and ornamental trees during the Lunar New Year in southern Vietnam. Several families have planted extra sunflowers and bachelor buttons to attract visitors, and charge VND30,000 ($1.32) for happy-snappers on a photo shoot.
Around an hour to the west of My Tho is the Tien River. Cai Be, one the Mekong Delta’s iconic floating markets, opens early in the morning at around 5 AM.
You can either ride a motorbike, take a bus or rent a boat for between VND150,000-800,000 ($6.60-35) for a round trip. Most of the boats here sell fruit and vegetables picked fresh from local gardens.
