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.

Ho Chi Minh City to the Mekong Delta: Mekong Delta is also known as Vietnam's 'rice basket’- a fertile area spreading nearly 50,000 sq km. Here, the mighty Mekong river ends by splitting itself into nine major tributaries. The Vietnamese name these nine tributaries “Nine Dragons.’’

After your 8.00am pick up, travel by shuttle bus to My Tho and at 9:30am board a wooden motor boat to Unicorn Island.

Whilst sailing on this boat you’ll be passing through natural creeks and quiet villages and watch rural people going to work. You will see an interesting fishermen's port and see the traditional stilt houses. One of the boat’s stops during this trip is at a large orchard that has many different types of tasty tropical fruits for your enjoyment. Another boat stop is at Turtle Island, here, on a small row boat, you’ll see interesting transportation modes that local people use to move around.

Next, explore a bee farm, where you have a chance to taste a tasteful cup of authentic honey tea whilst checking out the folk music that is typical to only the people in Southern Vietnam.

After that you will travel to a village where you can smell the flavor of coconut candies being made many yards away. This is a great chance to witness how village people make candy and handcrafted items from coconuts, these locals can amazingly make dozens of useful products out of coconut trees.

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