Mekong Delta Day Cruise

Activities in Ho Chi Minh City

Mekong Delta Day Cruise is a full-day guided boat trip that’s great for travellers looking to explore a more traditional part of Ho Chi Minh City. Locally known as The River of the Nine Dragons, the 15,000 square-metre delta is home to several riverside villages, verdant forests, swamps, and rice plantations.

Stopping at various points of interest along the way, this tour starts with a scenic trip to a prominent village (most tours stop at Ben Tre, My Tho, or Cai Be) that’s about two hours away from the city. Upon arrival, a wooden boat takes visitors on a leisurely cruise along the lush canals of Mekong River, passing by a number of floating markets, fish farms, Buddhist temples, and colonial structures.

The Mekong Delta Day Cruise also allows visitors to sample tropical fruits at local orchards, learn how to make coconut candy at a local coconut factory, and witness how sleeping mats and local handicrafts are produced at artisanal workshops.

With the help of an English-speaking guide, this informative day cruise provides an in-depth look at the villagers’ traditional lifestyles, culture, and customs. As the tour takes place mostly outdoors, we highly advise wearing lightweight yet modest clothing and bringing along sunblock, insect repellent, and bottled water.

Prices for the Mekong Delta Day Cruise vary according to season and tour operators. For example, a guided tour by Saigon River Express is priced at VND 2,500,000 which includes authentic Vietnamese delicacies for breakfast and lunch, unlimited drinks and local fruit, an English-speaking guide, hotel transfers, and entrance fees to the workshops.
