Mekong Delta Authentic River Experience


  • 8:00: Your tour guide will meet you in the lobby of your hotel, then transfer by car to the pier and get on the speedboat.
  • 8:15: The boat departs and you slip away from downtown Saigon via narrow canals and enter the verdant green tributaries of the Mekong Delta. A light breakfast is served on board.
  • Enjoy a brief stop at the ornate Tuong Van Pagoda. Time to hear the guide explains the importance of Buddhism to many people of the Delta.
  • Visit a bustling, colorful riverside market full of local specialties, tropical fruits, fish, and shellfish,... This is a great opportunity to go shopping for yourself.
  • Reach the idyllic watery expanses of the Delta itself, known as the Delta of Nine Dragons for the 9 tributaries that splinter from the main Mekong River. Discover the tangled maze of rivers and enjoy the peaceful nature of the Mekong Delta as you cruise past lush fruit orchards, green rice paddies,... 

Peaceful village life

The natural beauty of the Mekong Delta

  • Travel to small, winding canals of the Thu Thua area, shaded by a canopy of foliage as you drift along lazily.

Depending on the route, you will have 2 options to have a more close-up look at small-village life along the river, particularly during your time spent at a local family’s homestead:

  • Option 1: Visit a traditional riverside house with giant Burmese pythons as pets. Take an excursion to a quaint Mekong village and surrounding rice paddies, then a traditional farmhouse to sample fresh coconuts and unique Mekong whisky.
  • Option 2: You will visit a local merchant and try a range of Mekong produce, whisky and wine. Leisurely walking along the banks of the river to a traditional rural Vietnamese house where 3 generations live before exploring a charming village where you can try fresh coconuts from the tree. This variation provides a fascinating insight into life in the Mekong Delta region.

Please note: Our tours are flexible. Your guide may combine parts from both routes.

  • 12:30: Enjoy a traditional Mekong Delta lunch including fried elephant ear fish, a delicious specialty of the region at a local house.


  • After lunch, you will visit an orphanage run by Buddhist monks and play with the cute kids if you like.
  • Travel to the colorful Cao Dai Temple, with a unique design that looks like the representation of a church but with incorporating symbols, and images of saints inside and outside of it. Remember, the temple is closed most of the time so you can witness it from the outside only.
