How to Spend 2 Days on the Mekong Delta

How to Spend 2 Days on the Mekong Delta

With its winding waterways and ancient culture, the Mekong Delta offers a tranquil escape from nearby Ho Chi Minh City. Spending two days in the Rice Bowl of Southeast Asia, as it’s known, allows you to delve deeper into local culture and traditions and explore at a more relaxed pace than you would on a day trip. Here’s how. 

Day 1: Delights of the Delta

**Morning:**Dedicate the morning to one of the Mekong Delta’s famous floating markets. Explore either Cai Be or Cai Rang—the main wholesale floating market—as part of an early morning tour to benefit from a guide’s insider knowledge and beat the crowds.  

**Afternoon:**Spend the afternoon cycling through the rural parts of the Mekong Delta on a bike tour. Trips typically pedal past rice paddies and floating villages and stop at a fruit plantation to sample local produce such as dragon fruit and papaya. 

**Evening:**If you’ve opted to stay in the Mekong Delta overnight, experience local life in a homestay. Most 2-day tours include overnight accommodation in a local home, which comes with the added bonus of a Vietnamese family-style dinner. 

Day 2: Canals and Can Tho

**Morning:**Rise early and get out on the water while the morning mist still lingers. The village of My Tho is the gateway to the canals of the Mekong River, and most boats depart from here. Cover more sights in less time on a motorized boat, or go traditional by choosing to explore in a wooden rowboat. 

**Afternoon:**This afternoon is all about enjoying the bounty of the Mekong Delta. Experience the most of My Tho and its surroundings with a tour that takes you to a coconut-candy workshop, a local beekeeper, and the Dong Tam Snake Farm zoo—not for the faint-hearted. 

**Evening:**On your final evening in the Mekong Delta, soak up the lively atmosphere of the Ninh Kieu waterfront in Can Tho, the region’s largest city. Here, you’ll find floating restaurants and illuminated waterfront sights that make for postcard-worthy photos.
