Mekong Delta Tours
Two hours west of Ho Chi Minh City brings you to one of Vietnam’s friendliest and most scenic regions, the Mekong Delta, home to a plethora of Vietnam river cruises. This lush, pancake-flat delta is totally dominated by – and dependent on – the mighty Mekong River, which branches out into a network of canals and tributaries and as the nation’s most productive agricultural area, brims with rice paddies, coconut trees and tropical fruit orchards.
Private guided Mekong Delta tours allow you to navigate deep into this picturesque and tranquil region, from sampan rides along foliage-engulfed slender canals and long-tail boat trips amongst vibrant floating markets, to onshore forays to rustic stilt-house villages and cottage industries. Other exciting options include a Mekong Delta tour to Phnom Penh, journeying north into Cambodia along the Mekong River aboard a luxury boutique vessel.
