Sail through spectacular natural landscapes, kayak downriver, visit a floating market and indulge in a Vietnamese cooking class: embrace the best of Vietnam on this Mekong Delta Tour!
Mekong Delta Tour Itinerary
After being picked up from your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City bright and early on the morning of your tour, you'll head southeast across the luscious green rice paddies and crop fields of Vietnam.
Following a drive of approximately two hours, you'll reach Cai Be, a tiny town located half on land and half on water. Here, you'll climb into a boat and embark on a cruise on the Mekong Delta. As you sail down the important Asian river and its tributary canals, you'll make a stop at a floating fruit market, where you'll get to indulge in a tasting of the fresh local produce.
With renewed energy from the floating market fruit tasting, you'll continue your route through the canals, but this time in a kayak! Paddle down the Mekong River Delta, taking in the spectacular surrounding scenery and feeling the peace of being so close to nature, before stopping at a local restaurant located on the riverbanks.
All your kayaking effort will be well worth it! At the restaurant, you'll take part in a cooking class, learning to make a number of delicious typical Vietnamese recipes using rice, vegetables, meat and fish typical of Southeast Asia. How will they taste? You'll find out! After cooking, you'll get to sit down and enjoy all the mouth-watering dishes you've made.
Having eaten your fill of traditional home-cooked Vietnamese food, relax on the banks of the Mekong River Delta and admire its stunning landscapes one last time, before your return journey to Ho Chi Minh City.
