What you can expect

Explore the natural and rural beauty that surrounds the Mekong Delta on this private tour of the region. As you cruise by boat along the Mekong River, pass enchanting islets, learn about local fishing villages, and get a taste of local agriculture with a stop at a fruit farm.

Head from your hotel towards the Mekong Delta, whose extensive network of distributaries are fed by the Mekong River. Board a boat on the river and begin cruising down the gentle currents, lush nature surrounding you. Your knowledgeable guide shows you charming fishing villages perched along shore, giving you insights into local life. As you glide on the water through the market town of My Tho, pass the quaint Turtle, Dragon, and Phoenix Islands.

Your journey takes you past emerald lines of water coconuts just off the shore and thick orchards on the banks. Eventually make a stop on land to visit a tropical fruit farm. Here, learn about local agriculture, enjoy a performance of traditional song and dance, and get the chance to taste luscious fresh fruits picked directly from the farm. Later, ride further in shore to a bee farm, where you can sip on sweet, organic honey tea.

After another stop for a meal along the river, bring your tour to a close with a visit to the Vinh Trang Pagoda. The illustrious temple was built in the 19th century and features a number of Buddha statues, including a human-sized Jade Emperor. Marvel at the gorgeous details of the place before heading back to Ho Chi Minh City.
