Ben Tre's riverfront still has an old world feel to it and it's definitely one of the more picturesque in the delta.

Some classic old Chinese shophouses and an absence of heavy traffic, make Ben Tre's waterfront one of the most evocative in the delta. There's plenty of activity as an incomprehensible number of coconuts pass from boats to shore. There's also a market serving the town. It's a very photogenic strip - especially in the early mornings and late afternoons.
