Mekong Delta

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 358

This delta is formed by the multiple tributaries of the mighty Mekong River. Enjoy colourful local markets, a stork sanctuary and much more in this lush scenic and enticing region.


The Mekong Delta is situated in South West Vietnam and is where the mighty MekongRiver empties into the South China Sea by way of a network of many small tributaries. It is a land of flat flood plains and a few hills with green fields and sleepy villages. The villages are generally only reached by river or canal rather than by road. It is also known as the Rice Basket of Vietnam.

Travelling by road from Ho Chi Minh City, stay in the largest city in the delta, Can Tho with its floating markets, pagodas, temples and happy smiling inhabitants. A boat cruise will take you to a number of typical delta villages to introduce you to the lifestyles of the local people. You will visit the best known floating market in Can Tho and visit the Khmer Pagoda and the local museum.

There is time also to visit the Bang Lang Bird Sanctuary overgrown by bamboo where thousands of storks make their home. Return to Ho Chi Minh City.
