Experience Vietnamese culture on this boat trip along the Mekong Delta. You'll get to see the local lifestyle of the Ben Tre province as you stroll through their markets and listen to their music.
Mekong Delta Boat Ride
We'll pick you up from your hotel in Ho Chi Minh between 7 am and 7:45 am and get on a minibus to head to the port of Tan Cang. At 8 am, we'll board a boat that will take us on a cruise down the Mekong Delta.
During the cruise, you'll enjoy a delicious Vietnamese dessert while admiring a panoramic view of one of the most important places in Vietnam. Rice fields, water labyrinths and floating homes will be some of the delights we'll see during the tour.
An hour and a half later we'll arrive at the Ben Tre Province, a place that perfectly reflects the authentic life of the Mekong Delta. We'll get off the boat and stroll through the local markets.
We'll taste some of the fruit sold at their stalls, cross the canal aboard a small traditional boat, listen to traditional music and local legends as well as ride a tuk tuk around the residential neighbourhoods. We'll explore every corner of the Mekong delta!
At 1 pm we'll stop at a local restaurant to enjoy a delicious seven-course Vietnamese meal. After lunch, we'll head back to the boat and return to the port of Tan Cang.
We'll be back at your hotels in Ho Chi Minh at 4 pm.
