Highlights


Overview

"A day trip to the Mekong Delta is the perfect way to get a taste of the gorgeous Vietnamese countryside’’ – Savi and Vid

The iconic waterways of the Mekong Delta snake through Southern Vietnam bringing life to the lush region. Famed for being one of Asia’s longest rivers, it runs through six countries and is known as the Nine Dragons River by the Vietnamese. Packed with local life, nature, temples and floating markets, the area is a favourite among both tourists and locals.

Your Mekong Delta tour will begin with a pick-up from your Ho Chi Minh hotel and an introduction to your local tour guide. Following a journey by air-conditioned minibus, you’ll board a motorboat from Mỹ Tho and start to experience the lush forests, swamps and rice plantations that make the region so well-loved. Tour highlights will include visiting the famous Dragon, Phoenix, Turtle and Unicorn islands, as well as a traditional ‘sampan’ boat ride. Locals hand-row these colourful, wooden vessels under shady coconut trees – a must to experience the iconic countryside!

"One of the best memories of my trip was the Mekong Delta day tour… The Mekong Delta is certainly large enough to be its own country, making navigating the area an impossible endeavor to do alone’’ – Gian Karlo Antalan

There will be plenty of opportunities to soak up the local life as we tour the region’s most important villages by tuk-tuk and visit traditional workshops including coconut candy and honey farming. Sample the sweet local produce - but don’t spoil your appetite because we’ll travel next to an authentic local restaurant for a 5-course tasting lunch. This is an opportunity to try some of Southern Vietnam’s most delicious dishes before journeying on to our final stop, the Vĩnh Tràng Temple. Spy 100-year-old Buddha statues and marvel over the gilded gold exterior before we make our way back to Saigon at the end of a well-spent afternoon...

"The tour is a fantastic was to see the Mekong if you only have a day to spare. The journey didn't feel too long and we still had plenty of time in the region. The highlight was definitely cruising down the thin waterways in a canoe which we did at the end of the day. This was how I'd envisioned the region to look like - it was really special!" – ​Rose Munday

    I had a great time on this tour to the Mekong. As I only had one day to spare I don't think I could have seen more of it in such a short timeframe than I did! The tour guide was informative and also very funny. It's such a gorgeous region and I particularly enjoyed the canoe ride down the river - it was so silent and peaceful! The food on the tour was really great. We also got to see some gorgeous temples which were an added bonus I hadn't expected.

    Really a day to feel Ho Chi Minh, from climate, river, food, culture, and the good part is you are not in a hurry, really like the trip
