Mekong Delta - The ‘rice bowl’ of Vietnam, the delta is carpeted in a dizzying variety of greens. It's a water world that moves to the rhythms of the mighty Mekong, where boats, houses and markets float upon the innumerable rivers, canals and streams that criss-cross the landscape like arteries.

The bustling commerce of its towns contrasts sharply with the languid, almost-soporific pace of life in the countryside. Here buffalo wallow in rice paddies, coconut- and fruit-laden boats float slowly along the mud-brown waters, and two-wheeled exploration of the narrow lanes is amply rewarded with a true taste of rural hospitality (and delicious river fish).

Tour Highlights


 Experience the local life on Mekong River.

 Visit Cai be Floating Market, orchard fruit and local factories.

 Through numerous small canals and arroyos along the journey by a sampan.

Leaving the city behind, we journey two hours to the Mekong Delta town of Cai Be where we embark on a traditional wooden boat for an enchanting cruise. The tour begin with a visit to the local floating market where you'll see local products hung on offering poles in front of boats. Then our boat continues cruise through a large network of lush back waterways, pausing en-route to visit some local home factories where we can see how local people make rice paper for spring-roll, fish sauce & soya sauce, cooking salt, weaving coconut leaves for cottage roof, coconut candy & pop rice. Lunch is served with Mekong Delta’s specialties at a local ancient house. After lunch, we will enjoy a leisurely rowing boat trip along small canals. Then we cruise back to the pier to catch our transfer back to Ho Chi Minh City. Arrive in Ho Chi Minh City at around 16:30 – 17:00.
