Description

Nicknamed 'the rice bowl of Vietnam,' the fertile Mekong Delta provides work, food and shelter for much of Vietnam's population. On your full-day tour, you'll explore some of the delta's vast network of channels and canals by speedboat. Keep your camera handy for great photo ops, and hear informative commentary from your guide about the history, sights and significance of the Mekong Delta.

Begin in the early morning with transfer from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel to the central pier. Board your speedboat and zip along the Saigon River while nibbling on the provided light breakfast.

Your first stop takes in the ornately decorated Tuong Van Pagoda. Learn from your guide about Buddhist spiritual practises, then continue downriver to a colourful waterside market loaded with goods, including mounds of exotic fruits, veggies and fresh fish.

By mid-morning, your boat reaches a web of smaller tributaries of the Mekong River. Wind through lush canals shaded by tropical foliage and enjoy your time on a rowing boat. Taste fresh coconut and other produce, or sip fiery Mekong whisky or wine. Visit a lovely pagoda where a local prepares a Vietnamese lunch featuring traditional favourites, such as fresh spring rolls, ginger chicken, caramelised pork or elephant ear fish — a Mekong Delta speciality. After lunch, learn about the Cao Dai religion - which combines the teachings of Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and Christianity — and see a colourful Cao Dai Temple.

4.7 out of 5

5/5 28 Dec. 2019

The tour was well delivered , from being picked up on rime at the hotel , to visiting various places by boat , with a guide that gave a great overview to the Vietnam way of life . A very comprehensive lunch , The river unfortunately is full of debris which the climate campaigners need to look at in their big picture All in all I would highly recommend this day out to see the real people of Vietnam , though bring a scarf to cover your nose , the smell gets very pungent at times Enjoy

The tour guide was excellent in his commentary and knowledge of the places we visited. Travelling on the Saigon River by fast speed boat was a lot nicer than a bus ride. We were away from the tourist areas. We were not rushed at anytime and not asked extras.

Put this on your must do list. A great day out, Thankyou Bihn for your informative commentary and for your patience answering all our questions. It gave us a really good insight into the way many people in Vietnam live.
