I'm currently in Vinh Long and plan to go to Ben Tre tomorrow (probably through taxi+ferry+public bus path instead of the bus through My Tho ) before heading to HCMC.

I'm trying to find a cheap tour on mekong river. For now,
- in Vinh Long, only had 300k Dong/15$ tour through hotel or street offer for ~5h tour (An binh, Cai be floating market, bonsai garden, ...; not sure if per person or per boat). Cuu Long Tourist has 25$ per boat for the same trip.
- in Can Tho, starting prices were 10$/20$ for 3h/5-7h trip (one or many market + canal tour) and I had it down to 7/15$ (still not sure if per boat or per person).
- Don't know for Ben Tre, but travelfish page seems to say it is a lot cheaper than My Tho where there is boat tour monopoly.

Comments on price ?
Any nearby traveller(s) wanting to join for today in Vinh Long or tomorrow afternoon or the next day in Ben Tre ?

Sorry for late post.
