Private Excursion to My Tho (Mekong Delta)

Explore the majestic Mekong, cruise along secluded waterways, and visit sleepy riverside towns before visiting Thoi Son Island on this private tour that includes lunch and a personal guide.

Known as Vietnam's 'rice basket’, the Mekong Delta is a fertile area spreading nearly 50,000 sq km and is a must-see for anyone visiting Ho Chi Minh.

The 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.’’

Pick-up will be from your hotel at 8.00am by your guide and driver for the day. You will then set off for the approximately two hour drive to My Tho, a Mekong Delta town. On arrival in My Tho you will first visit Vinh Trang pagoda. Following this you will board a boat for a cruise on the Mekong river, whilst sailing you will be passing natural creeks and quiet villages and watch rural people going to work. You will see an interesting fishermen's port and the traditional stilt houses. Keep your camera handy!

On arrival you will stop at Thoi Son islet in province of Tien Giang, which has now become an ecotourism site. However, few people know that today’s Thoi Son is thanks to the endless efforts of local people to develop the isolated isle into one of the region’s go-to destinations. You will explore this region and its delights before returning to the cruise boat by small rowing boats through a short stretch of waterways. Lunch is in My Tho before you return to HCMC by private car.
