From Ho Chi Minh: CitySmall-Group Mekong Discovery Tour

by Urban Adventures Duration 8h Nonrefundable No booking or credit card fees
per traveler Price is $67

For a break from busy Ho Chi Minh City, discover the lush beauty of the Mekong Delta as you cruise down its famed river. With island stops at local farms and villages, you gain insight into the culture, customs, and life of the Vietnamese people who call the Delta home.

Meet your guide, hop on the bus, and set course for My Tho, a former naval base turned bustling port city in the Mekong Delta. Here, board your awaiting private boat for a journey down the Mekong River. This powerful river creates incredibly fertile land, which accounts for roughly half of Vietnam’s total food production.

At the first stop, visit a fish farm and learn why it remains an important cottage industry. Next, explore an island with lush gardens and sample fresh tropical fruit before getting a behind-the-scenes look into a coconut candy factory on the following island.

As you float further downstream, immerse yourself with daily life in the region as you spend time at traditional villages along the way. Continue by Xe Loi (motorized cart) to a bee farm, where you transfer to a smaller rowing boat allowing for deeper access into the smaller canals of the Delta.

Complete your day socializing with locals during lunch at a popular restaurant before starting your return back to Ho Chi Minh City.

4.5 out of 5

1/5 Apr 19, 2018

My driver was 20 minutes late getting me to the location for pickup. The tour company would not refund me. The driver purposely drove there the busiest possible route. according to the map it is only 5.7 kilometres to the pick up area. We left with ample time, yet it took more than 50 minutes to get there.
