Ben Tre is a province located downstream of the Mekong River, formed from Cu Lao Bao, Cu Lao Minh, and Cu Lao An Hoa. Thanks to its convenient location, being approximately 85 km away from Ho Chi Minh City, Ben Tre is an attractive destination for those who enjoy exploring the Mekong Delta.
This area is surrounded by four rivers: Tien River, Ham Luong River, Ba Lai River, and Co Chien River, which attribute abundant alluvium year-round, providing favorable conditions for residents to develop agriculture, especially fruit cultivation, notably coconut trees. Coconut trees in Ben Tre are considered the cultural and economic symbol of this region, deeply rooted in the lives of the local people through generations. Coconuts appear in various dishes, beverages, and daily utensils. Moreover, they have been associated with the livelihood culture of the people in Ben Tre for generations. There are currently over 200,000 households cultivating coconuts in the province, with an export output reaching nearly 800 million coconuts per year. Therefore, people use affectionate terms like “the land of coconuts” and “coconut homeland” to describe Ben Tre.
In addition, Ben Tre also attracts tourists with its historical and cultural sites, traditional folk festivals, and numerous handicraft villages with a history spanning over a century.
