Experience life in the Mekong Delta on a full-day tour from Ho Chi Minh City. Cruise the canals of the Delta on traditional sampans, sample seasonal fruits, fried fish and other produce of the region, and ride by horse-drawn carriage through villages.
What to Expect
Enjoy a full-day sightseeing tour of the Mekong Delta, with round-trip transfers from Ho Chi Minh City.
You will be picked up from your accommodation at approximately 08:30 to travel by air-conditioned vehicle to My Tho City, capital of Tien Giang (Front River) Province. Here, cruise by boat along the waterways of the Delta to Unicorn Island, one of the 4 “lucky” islands of the Mekong, where floating markets and fertile orchards await.
Watch the locals paddling along the canals and tributaries of the Mekong River, and sample some of the typical produce of the Mekong Delta, such as tropical candy, seasonal fresh fruit, and more.
Next, row traditional sampans along the small arroyos (canals) to see how coconut candy is made. Back on dry land, take a horse-drawn carriage along the village roads to stop for a delicious lunch of local specialties, such as tai tuong (fried fish), spring rolls, and fresh shrimp.
En route back Ho Chi Minh City, stop to admire the Vinh Trang Pagoda, surrounded by trees and an architectural gem of Tien Giang Province.
