Overview
Roaming the Mekong Delta by boat is popular with visitors to Ho Chi Minh City, but you don’t necessarily need a multi-day tour to discover this rural region. This great-value tour reveals the Delta’s scenery and lifestyles in a day: with riverboat and canal rowboat rides; visits to workshops, villages, and a temple; and an orchard lunch—all with a guide for the lowdown on the sights. Return transfers included.

What to Expect
Leave your Ho Chi Minh City hotel by air-conditioned coach bound for the Mekong Delta, the farming heartland of south Vietnam. Then, head for Ben Tre, a maze of lush islands and riverside hamlets. Visit a village for insight into local life and culture, and sample home-grown tropical fruits and honey tea, made in the villagers' beehives. Listen to traditional south Vietnamese music and then ride a hand-rowed sampan along tranquil canals to soak in the scenery and peace. Visit a workshop to see how coconut candy is made and sample some of the sweets. Then, sail to an orchard restaurant for a local lunch before taking another boat to the bustling port of My Tho. Step ashore here to visit the ornate Vinh Trang Pagoda before your return road trip to Ho Chi Minh City, where a hotel drop-off ends your tour.
