Day 4: Mekong Delta Full-day Tour (by boat)
Enjoy a scenic speedboat day trip to discover the tangled maze of rivers and vast paddies found in the Mekong Delta on our culture-centric tours. Departing by boat from Ho Chi Minh City (also known as Saigon), you will explore areas of the Mekong Delta that few other tourists get to experience.
You will experience the old-world river life of the Mekong Delta, and enjoy a lesser-seen glimpse into rural Vietnam as it trundles along a slow tempo, as it has done for centuries.
Travel by modern speedboat and enjoy countless photo opportunities of the idyllic scenery and local people as you cruise past buffaloes ploughing fields, fruit orchards and rice paddies during our Mekong Delta tour.
Our tour provides close-up looks at small-village life along the river particularly during your time spent at a local family’s homestead, where you will be invited to enjoy fresh coconuts and fiery Mekong Delta whisky. You will have a traditional Mekong Delta lunch including fried elephant ear fish, a delicious specialty of the region, at a local house!
