Mekong Delta Tour

A visit to the Mekong Delta is a must for any visitor to Ho Chi Minh where floating markets, stilt houses, fishing villages and other fascinating sights await. Enjoy the real life of the locals of the delta, cruise through the canal and trek through the fruit plantations.

As well as offering a wealth of unique sights, the vast expanse of the Mekong Delta is a great opportunity to experience the rural way of life that exists outside of Vietnam's major urban areas.

The itinerary begins with a 2-hour drive to My Tho where, upon arrival, you'll board a wooden motor boat and cruise to Unicorn Island passing traditional stilt houses and quiet fishing villages on the way.

After a stop at a large orchard - you'll enjoying sampling some of the tasty tropical fruits - push on to Turtle Island and transfer to a small rowing boat to explore the backwaters.

Next, visit a bee farm and taste some authentic honey tea whilst listening to some traditional South Vietnamese folk music, before seeing coconut candies and other coconut products being made by hand in a nearby village.

At the end of the tour you will be transferred back to HCMC.
