Cruise the quiet canals of the Mekong Delta on a full-day boat tour from Ho Chi Minh City to My Tho and Ben Tre. Get a glimpse of rural life in Vietnam, visit a lively fruit market at the edge of the water, and stop for a lunch of local cuisine, then spend the afternoon exploring by traditional row boat. This full-day boat tour includes all activities, lunch, and round-trip transport from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel.
  • Full-day Mekong Delta cruise
  • Travel by boat to see the Mekong Delta from the water
  • Lunch in a riverside town
  • Visit a market, candy factory, and boat workshop
  • Tour small canals in a traditional row boat
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off in Ho Chi Minh City
Start with 7:30am pickup at your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, then begin the 1.5-hour trip to Trung Luong, a Mekong River town where you’ll meet the cruise boat. Meet the crew and climb aboard, then enjoy views of rice paddies, rural villages, and farm fields as you cruise down Bao Dinh Canal.

Come to shore to browse a fresh fruit market at the edge of the canal, then continue into the delta town of My Tho for lunch at a local restaurant. Following your meal, return to the boat to navigate the Tien River to Ben Tre, passing the colorful stilt houses of Quy Island along the way. Pause to visit a boat building workshop and sample coconut milk candy, a local specialty, then navigate around Dragon, Phoenix, and Unicorn Islands.

Transfer to a smaller, traditional rowing boat so you can explore the slender Thoi Son canal, ducking beneath slender foot bridges, and slipping through the shade of lush vegetation. Return to the cruise boat and My Tho, where you’ll meet a driver for the return trip to Ho Chi Minh City. This full-day tour concludes with late afternoon drop-off at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel.
