Mekong Delta Boat Tours

There is nothing more authentically Vietnamese than taking a day trip or an overnight excursion to discover the fascinating waterways of the Mekong Delta. The delta region itself covers an area of over 40 thousand square kilometres which is absolutely enormous. The area also covers 12 different provinces and is home to an abundance of animal spices; even relatively recently between 1997 and 2007 over 1,000 new animal species were recorded such as fish, lizards an mammals.

My Tho & Ben Tre

Explore the Mekong Delta by venturing out to My Tho, a charming city located on the bank of the Mekong River. On arrival you will board a traditional boat and slowly cruise through the narrow tree-lined waterways of the Vam Xep Canal one of the Mekong’s tributaries. Along the way you will see a bee farm and coconut workshop before taking a short horse-drawn cart ride to a handicraft village.

Cai Be & Vinh Long

Visit the Floating Markets of Cai Be where more than 400 boats gather every day to trade goods. On this tour you will visit fruit orchards, and witness how local people make ceramics, popcorn and rice paper. This tour offers a great opportunity to interact with local merchants and to learn about their way of life on the waters of the Mekong.
*These tours are also great for photographers.
