You will also have a chance to see a coconut factory. Situated alongside the river, these are small coconut-processing operations. Once the coconut has been shelled, the coconut fibers are removed from the husk to make rope, which in turn is used to weave rugs. You can watch the whole manufacturing process in a short period of time. Most of the work is done by hand at very low cost. The buyers are mostly foreign companies.
  • 11:30 Return to Coconut RiverSide Lodge, if there is still time left you can harvest some water coconut leaves and weave them into "poon" sticks at the guidance of the staff.

This was a wonderful experience, one of the highlights of our 3-week trip to Vietnam. The family team running it could not have been more friendly & helpful and really gave us a "local" experience. They organised for us some fascinating insights into the area including some time with a veteran of Vietnam's liberation struggle who was really hospitable & interesting; river trips; local markets etc. We couldn't have been made more welcome. It was at the very start of the pandemic and it was clear that it was being taken very seriously, something we found so reassuring. The lodges were gloriously placed; they were very simple but comfortable and so relaxing. A beautiful place to get a real insight into the life of the Mekong delta...without hordes of tourists!

Liked · The riverside views are lovely, the rooms are cute, and the property is full of flowers. Hieu greeted us and gave us a tour. They were very accommodating about my vegetarian diet. Disliked · I wish I could have stayed longer.
