Day 4: Our first day in Ho Chi Minh City has us learning southern style dishes at the hands of a local chef who will teach us at one of the city's culinary schools in a downtown historic building at the Hoa Tuc Cooking School. After a quick respite at the hotel, we'll spend the afternoon touring a couple of museums learning about Vietnamese culture and history.  We'll finish the day's activities at the home of Mrs. Tuyet Mai and Mr Dinh Linh, who studied music and art at the National Academy of Music.  They will show us traditional Vietnamese musical instruments, play for us and even give us lessons on the instruments.  Day 5: Today we will depart for the Mekong Delta and arrive in Ben Tre Province and take a ride on the back of a xe-loi, a combination of two seat cart and motorcycle, through the paths, coconut palms and fruit farms.  We'll meet up with the 'Mango Cruise' and venture through the canals to visit local workshops and depart the cruise to hop on bicycles to visit Phong Nam village visiting a home where they process coconut by hand and then on to a rice noodle factory.  We'll then visit a family that lives on fishing and shrimp farming, exploring the winding maze of canals in the area. Back on board the Mango Cruise, we'll continue on to the Mango Home Stay where we'll dine on local dishes for lunch.

Day 8-10 Spend the next two days and nights relaxing at the Mango Bay Resort on the beautiful tropical island of Phu Quoc.  We learned from our last tour of Vietnam, that a couple of days finishing up with laying on a beach and eating the freshest seafood grilled next to the waves is the perfect way to wrap up the tour.
