Description

Enjoy a fast, scenic speedboat trip through the Mekong Delta. Departing from Ho Chi Minh City's central pier, you will explore areas of the Mekong Delta that few other tourists get to experience. Key cultural stops include a Cao Dai Temple, a riverside market, local workshops, a pagoda and other historical sites. Enjoy countless opportunities to capture amazing photos, spend time at a family homestead, where you'll be invited to enjoy refreshing, freshly cut coconuts and fiery Mekong whisky. Later our chef will prepare many Vietnamese dishes, such as fried elephant ear fish - a Mekong Delta specialty - served at a local pagoda or school for underprivileged children. Your guide will meet you in the lobby of your hotel and bring you by car to your boat at Ho Chi Minh's central pier. Leave the city via narrow canals and enter the verdant green tributaries of the Mekong Delta. Enjoy a brief stop at a local pagoda. Breakfast of light pastries, local fruit and Vietnamese coffee will be served on the boat. Visit a bustling local riverside market as local producers buy and sell rice, fish and colorful fruits and vegetables. Visit also a local Mekong Delta village and stroll through terraced rice paddies and sugarcane fields. Make a stop at a traditional wooden house.
