Overview

Visit the Mekong Delta on an 8-hour tour from Ho Chi Minh City, and spend the day exploring Delta canals by riverboat, motorized rickshaw, kayak, and traditional rowboat. Along the way you’ll meet local artisans, sample regional cuisine, and learn about life on the Mekong Delta. This full-day Mekong Delta tour includes all activities, lunch in a local home, and round-trip transport from your centrally-located hotel in Ho Chi Minh City.
  • 8-hour Mekong Delta tour
  • Explore rivers and canals by boat
  • Visit local workshops
  • Eat lunch in a family home
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off in Ho Chi Minh City
  • Small group tour limited to 10 people
Start with 8am pickup at your hotel, then begin the 67-mile (108-km)  trip to the Delta town of Ben Tre in an air-conditioned minivan (pickup is only available at District 1 hotels, or at a centrally-located meeting point). Upon arrival at Ben Tre, transfer to a riverboat for a scenic trip along the Ham Luong River, a tributary of the Mekong River.
Visit a series of local workplaces at the edge of the water, and learn how local products are made, from activated charcoal to dried coconut, coconut husk brooms, and coconut fiber crafts. Keep exploring a network of quiet village roads in a motorized rickshaw, or xe lôi, then hop in a kayak for a paddle down a canal flanked by tropical foliage.
Refuel with a lunch of regional cuisine in a family home, and enjoy an early afternoon break to stroll, explore the village, or simply relax in the sunshine. Visit a farm to sample fresh fruits, then travel down the Mekong Delta’s winding system of canals in a small rowboat, the perfect way to get a taste of Delta life at its most traditional. Return to Ben Tre in the sampan boat meeting a driver for the trip back to Ho Chi Minh City. This 8-hour tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
