Full description
Your classic Mekong Delta tour starts with pickup from your hotel at 8:00AM. From there you will travel by road to the Mekong Delta, Vietnam’s largest rice bowl. Upon arrival in My Tho, visit the Vinh Trang Pagoda, a unique pagoda and a mixture of Vietnamese, Chinese, and Cambodian construction. Afterwards, take a cruise around the intricate small canals of the Delta region, which will prove to be a great way to observe the local lifestyle and take in the views, dotted by many islands. You can watch the locals go about their everyday lives, and see how they make their coconut candy and crispy rice cakes. You will also be welcome to chat to the friendly vendors about life in the Mekong Delta. Following that, take a short walk around an orchard, where you will discover many seasonal fruits. You can enjoy wonderful traditional music while tasting some tropical fresh fruits, and can afterwards visit a honey bee farm to taste special hot tea.

C’est très touristique. Pas cher mais il faut prévoir des pourboires à chaque arrêt. Le but est juste de tout vous vendre. Pas de réelle découverte du Mékong. Le guide ne parlait pas français (comme indiqué sur le descriptif) par contre il parlait très bien anglais.

This tour was a highlight of our time n Vietnam.

Great tour of the Mekong Delta where you can see a lot, and for little money. The only thing that is a bit annoying are the bad roads from Saigon but otherwise really recommendable!
