Bordered by the Tien and Han branches of the Mekong, Tra Vinh's location on a peninsula makes it somewhat isolated. Getting there is a straight up and back trip, because no car ferries cross the rivers here (motorbikes can be ferried by small boats). Western tourists are few, though there are several very worthwhile things to see here.

The provincial capital is also called Ben Tre and is a friendly sort of place with a few old buildings near the banks of the Mekong.
