Discover the river that runs through southeast Asia with this Mekong Delta Private Tour. You'll learn about traditional Vietnamese activities and the daily life of the people living on the banks of the canals.
Mekong Delta Private Tour
Between 7:30 am and 8 am we'll pick you up from your hotel in downtown Ho Chi Min and head to My Thio, on the western side of the Mekong River. On arrival, we'll board a traditional wooden boat. As we sail along the river we'll see its four beautiful islands, known as Dragon Island, Unicorn, Phoenix and Turtle.
We'll disembark on Unicorn island and follow its rural paths while observing the cultivated areas. You'll also have the opportunity to taste tropical fruit and watch a folklore music show. Finally, we'll visit a plot of land used for growing fruit trees.
To observe the beauty of Vietnamese nature, we'll board a rowing boat and sail along the Thoi Son Canal. The tour will also take us to visit a family run business and a bee farm, where we'll taste some delicious honey tea. Afterwards, we'll visit a factory that produces delicious coconut cakes.
We'll stop for lunch at a local restaurant, and then you'll have some free time to rest. Afterwards, the final stop on the tour will be the village of Tan Thach by bike. Here we'll get to know the residents of the Mekong Delta and their daily life. If you're unable to participate in the bike ride you relax on a hammock, as you feel the cool Vietnamese breeze.
After spending a day in the Mekong Delta, we'll return to Ho Chi Min.
