SAI GON – LONG AN – TAN TRU - MY THO – CAN THO (B-L)

Start the day by leaving the hustle and bustle of Saigon for the peace and tranquility of the Mekong River Delta.  The villages and countryside are wonderful destinations for learning about the local culture because they have not experienced as much tourism as other areas.

The first stop will be at a countryside market where you can interact with locals and try some local snacks. Furthermore, it's the ideal time to stock up on fresh tropical fruit for the trip.

Enjoy a peaceful ferry ride crossing the Vam Co River to a local family business making mats, which have traditionally been used in Vietnamese daily life for centuries.

Later, head to Tan Phuoc Tay village where we will join an adventurous bike or scooter ride with our driver through small hamlets surrounded by breathtaking paddy fields, vegetable farms, and dragon fruit fields. This is also a good opportunity for photo lovers.

Lunch at a restaurant serving local specialties.

Transfer to My Tho City and enjoy a boat trip along the Mekong River, exploring the small towns, tropical fruit farms, and coconut plantations dotted around the countryside.

Wrap up our great day with a relaxed sampan trip on Mekong’s picturesque canal. Tourists can unwind and enjoy a pleasant atmosphere thanks to the serenity and tranquility of the waterways.

After a short walk-through of the local orchard, head to Can Tho city.

    I had a great time on my tour of the Mekong River Delta. The peaceful ferry ride across the Vam Co River was a great way to start the trip and it was nice to take in the beautiful scenery. The visit to Tan Phuoc Tay village was an eye-opening experience and I enjoyed learning about the local way of life. The boat trip along the Mekong River was a real highlight of the trip and the views of the river and the surrounding landscape were stunning. The Phong Dien Retail Floating Market was a great cultural experience and it was fun to see the various stalls and sample some of the local food. The floating market named Cai Rang was another amazing experience and I enjoyed exploring the market and seeing the local way of life. Overall, it was a great trip and I would highly recommend it.
