Three days on the complex maze of the Mekong Delta is hardly enough for some people, but this tour gives a taste of life on the mighty Mekong River and its' tributaries. You will be taken on a trip along the myriad of canals and tributaries to get more in depth view of life in the Delta. Gliding on the bustling waterways we enjoy the opportunity to interact with the local people at floating markets, eat tropical fruits in lush orchards, look into the art of Bonsai and have tea in a typical boathouse.
+ Day 1: Ho Chi Minh City - Chau Doc (Breakfast)
Our tour starts with a drive through the Mekong Delta to the town of My Tho for a visit to the local markets. After browsing through the markets we will board our riverboats for a cruise along the endless waterways of the mighty Mekong. One of our stops will be to Xeo Quyt Forest, which was a old Vietcong stronghold during the American War. From here we will continue onto Long Xuyen where we will board our vehicle for the drive to Chau Doc.
+ Day 2: Chau Doc - Vinh Long (Breakfast/Luch/Dinner)
Chau Doc town is situated close to the Cambodian border. While here we will be guided through a bonsai garden before heading up Sam Mountain for a birds eye view over the paddy fields towards Cambodia. Once off the mountain we visit a fish farm. From Chau Doc we drive to Can Tho for a tour around the city. From Can Tho we drive to Vinh Long where we board our private boat for a cruise to a lush tropical orchard. Tonight we will be accommodated with a local family in their house on stilts. Mattresses, mosquito nets and pillows are provided. This is a unique opportunity to closely observe life in the Delta.
