The Mekong Delta is the region in southwestern Vietnam, where the mighty Mekong River pours into the sea. With a system of fertile land and numerous rivers and canals, the Mekong Delta is the agricultural heart of South Vietnam and one of the most important fishing areas in Vietnam. A day in the Mekong delta is ideal for exploring the quieter side of Vietnamese life and understanding the real life of the Mekong. The hospitality and the cordial nature of the local people make your trip even more fascinating.

Morning - Mekong Delta Speedboat Tour 

7:30, pick up in the hotel lobby and transfer to Bach Dang Pier by car or minivan.
Take the speedboat towards the Mekong Delta. This journey will give you an insight into the changing landscape of Vietnam from the glittering skyscrapers and bustling centers to a peaceful rural life along the riverbank.

On board, enjoy a light breakfast of croissants, fresh tropical fruits and bottled water. On the way you can enjoy the fresh air and see many small villages, fishing boats and the lush vegetation. You'll also get lots of information about the daily lives of people on the riverbank.

After a one-hour speedboat ride we reach a small canal covered with coconuts. There you get off the boat and visit the shrimp farms. Here's how the locals breed shrimp. Afterwards, you can cycle around the village to discover daily life in the Mekong. The smiling locals will warmly welcome you.

Afterwards visit a Vietnamese family who produces rice wine. Experience a local market where seasonal fruit is served. Vegetables, spices, seafood and other local specialties are offered here. Then take a short walk to a pagoda with unique architecture built in the mid-19th century.

Continue through the extensive rice fields and visit a local Cao Dai temple
to learn more about the religion of Caodaism.

At 11:00 there is a local family who makes tofu, where you can enjoy a light meal. After the meal we say goodbye to the Mekong Delta and go on the speedboat to go back to Saigon.

12:30 pm, return to the Pier and transfer to your hotel.
