Upper Mekong River Day Trip from Ho Chi Minh City
From US$25.00
Roaming the Mekong Delta by boat is popular with visitors to Ho Chi Minh, but you don’t necessarily need a multi-day tour to discover this rural region. This great-value tour reveals the delta’s scenery and lifestyles in a day: with riverboat and canal rowboat rides, visits to workshops, villages, and a temple, and an orchard lunch; all with a guide for lowdown on the sights and return transfers included.
What to Expect
Leave your Ho Chi Minh hotel by air-conditioned coach bound for the Mekong Delta, the farming heartland of south Vietnam.

After about two hours, arrive and head for Ben Tre, a maze of lush islands and riverside hamlets. Visit a village for insight into local life and culture, and sample home-grown tropical fruits and honey tea, made in the villagers' beehives.

Listen to traditional south Vietnamese music and then ride a hand-rowed sampan along tranquil canals to soak in the scenery and peace. Visit a workshop to see how coconut candy is made and sample some of the sweets. Then, sail to an orchard restaurant for a local lunch before taking another boat to the bustling port of My Tho.

Step ashore here to visit the ornate Vinh Trang Pagoda before your return road trip to Ho Chi Minh where a hotel drop-off ends your tour.

This trip was a highlight (among many highlights)

We loved this trip, there was a lot of driving but also visits to many interesting places. One specializing in coconut products (candy and wine among them). Another was rice processing, making pancakes, and noodles, and more wine.
