Horse cart riding in Mekong Delta Vietnam is such an experient trip you should not miss , if you come to Ben Tre...

The road linking Tan Thach and Quoi Son communes in the Mekong Delta province of Ben Tre seems to be one of the most ‘retro’ in Vietnam, as horse-drawn carts still clang down it every dayThe small, half-open vehicles with two wheels were previously used for transporting goods and passengers, but are now utilized for travel only. Each ‘one horsepower cart’ with five Westerners on board is pulled across small bridges on the road through villages and rice farms.

Travel companies advertise the horse cart service as a means of “learning the Mekong Delta lifestyle in one day.” Visitors are carried from nearby Tien Giang Province’s capital of My Tho City to the four touristy islets of Long, Lan, Quy, and Phung by boat, before crossing the Tien River to Ben Tre and jumping on the horse carts.

The horse cart station, which houses around 30 vehicles, is located on the banks of the river.
