Mekong Delta Discovery Small Group Adventure Tour from Ho Chi Minh City

Travel to the city of My Tho, a 2.5 hour journey, by air-conditioned mini-coach. A former naval base, My Tho is now a bustling port city in the Mekong Delta. The area is the final destination of the Mekong River which winds its way from Tibet, China, Burma, Laos, Cambodia and finally Vietnam. An incredibly fertile region its prime industry is food production, producing approximately half of Vietnam's total agricultural output. Life for villagers in the area revolves around the rivers and canals that make up the delta, people are more likely to transport by river than by road.

Upon arrival into My Tho you'll board a private boat for a cruise on the Mekong River. On the boat ride your local guide will take you to visit an island with lush tropical gardens where you'll have a chance to sample tropical fruit. You'll continue to another island in the Mekong Delta, you'll learn more about another cottage industry, coconut candy.

One of our highlights of our trip to Ho Chi Minh City.
The tour guide was extremely funny and spoke great english. There was no boring or waiting time, it was quite full-on which made it very enjoyable. No pushing for sales, the locals looked content and quite happy to welcome us which made the trip even more pleasant.
I would definitely recommend this trip as even though it is quite full-on, it still leaves you quite a bit of time coming back in the city center mid-afternoon.

Unlike any other tour I've taken before. Riding a banana boat through the Mekong delta was an interesting experience. I especially enjoyed visiting the different islands and seeing what life was like in the countryside.
