We recommend to you the Mekong Delta as Saigon’s most
visited site. This trip mixes sightseeing with cultural
exchange. You will have a memorable time with the hospitable
people of the Mekong Delta by staying overnight at a local
The 2-day trip offers a glimpse into the agrarian life of
southern Delta region as we wind our way through the
tributaries of the Mekong River. From our boats, we are able
to closely observe the daily rituals of river life and
participate in the bustling commercial activities as we buy
our fruits from the floating market. Along the way, we will
visit an orchard farm, handicraft village, and a land market
with an abundance of colorful fresh fruits and vegetables.
Sai Gon - Mekong
morning we set off for a drive through the Mekong Delta to the
town of Cai Be, well-known for it's floating market. Here we
will board our private boat for a cruise along the maze of
waterways and canals to Vinh Long. We will stop at the home of
a Bonsai gardener for a sumptuous Delta lunch, including the
popular dish of 'Elephant ear fish' before continuing our
exploration of the tributaries and canals of the delta.
Towards the end of the day we arrive the home of a local
family whose house is built on stilts over the water. These
people will be our hosts for this evening and will tell us
more about life in the Delta.
Day 2: Floating market
early to the sounds of the Delta coming to life for another
day, we have breakfast and start our trip with a boat cruise
on sparking streams along the endless waterway of Mighty
Mekong River to visit more floating markets. There will be
hundreds of boats loaded with fruits, vegetables and fish
jostling for trade. Sellers advertise their wares by crying
out across the waters. We visit the lush orchards and are
treated to a delicious tropical fruits. Afternoon drive back
to Ho Chi Minh city.
