Mekong Delta Adventure


When the city becomes overwhelming, it’s time to hit the countryside. See the beauty of Southern Vietnam, gain insights into the way of life in the Mekong Delta, and taste authentic southern Vietnamese cuisine in an adventure that takes you away from the crowds and the tourist traps and brings you to people with real and exciting stories to share. It’s not just a sightseeing tour, it’s a fun and immersive experience. We highly recommend you do the motorbike option as the routes we found will go on some small alleys, get close to nature and try to stay away from the busy traffic, it would be a greater experience compared to the car option, but for those who prefer clean, safe and faster, car option is always available. WHO IS THIS TOUR FOR?
  • People who want to chill, relax and enjoy the beauty of Southern Vietnam as well as the iconic floating life of the Mekong region
  • People who want to see real local life, taste real local food, and stay away from the common tourist traps

Drink stop

11:00 AM

We’ll arrive at the Mekong at 11:00 AM. From here, we will board a private boat and explore the different islands along the river.

Your itinerary includes a local brick factory to watch bricks being made in traditional methods, a straw mat weaving house, and a coconut processing plant where you also get to try yummy coco candies! All your stops are connected by the river so today, the riverboat is your main transportation.

You will taste all sorts of local flavors for lunch and enjoy fresh coconuts and hammocks – this is what the Mekong Delta is all about. Before your day ends, you will return to the river, but this time on a small rowboat. Enjoy the peaceful countryside river life as you paddle your sampan through the palm-tree-lined canals. Towards the end, our boat will pick us up again, and we will cruise back to the boat landing in Ben Tre town.

3:00 PM

Heading back to HCMC, it will be a bit longer drive, and we will have some rest stops. Will be back in the city around 6-7:00 PM

What to bring

You should prepare some sunscreen for the day unless you want to become lobsters :)))

For the long ride, we always recommend trousers and long-sleeved shirts, along with sandals or sneakers to protect yourself from the heat – make sure you don’t mind getting them a bit dirty/wet.

A pair of sunglasses will help, as with a small personal bag to keep your belongings.

Don’t forget to bring your camera, there are lots of beautiful and exciting things to capture for the whole day.
