Need to escape the concrete jungle of Saigon? Look no further! Leave behind the skyscrapers and noise and head out to the Mekong Delta. This maze of rivers with its surrounding rice paddies is exactly what you need. On this adventure, you’ll get to cruise around on a riverboat, visit traditional villages that specialize in producing local goods, meet unique river people and not to mention, eat delicious food! This will be your opportunity to really get off the beaten track and experience what local lifestyle is to the Vietnamese.
Our guides will pick you up at your accommodation and together you will make your way westward to the Mekong Delta. Catch a breath of fresh air as you drive away from the silhouette of Saigon, and enjoy the views of the picturesque countryside on the way. Soon you will be on back roads and red dirt trails - it’s not an adventure if you only drive on paved roads!
Discover everything the Mekong Delta has to offer - gorgeous rice paddies, riverside markets, and a unique insight into the lifestyle. Your journey includes visits to local cottage industries such as incense making and rice wine production. Take a leisurely ride on a riverboat and cruise all the way to a shrimp farm. Meeting the local river people and seeing how they still depend on the delta to make a living, is all part of this authentic experience.
The adventure comes to end with lunch at a stilted restaurant where you can actually catch your main ingredient - fish - while you enjoy a cold coconut in the shade. After a break and some hammock time, it’s time to return to the hustle and bustle of the city. But if you don’t want your adventure to stop there and want to take it to the next level, try our 2 days, 1-night Wildlife Mekong adventure!
If you are an experienced rider, you can drive your own Vespa. We will give you a short driving test at the beginning of the tour to make sure you feel confident on Vietnamese streets. We do, however, recommend that you let our experienced guides take the wheel.
