The lush banks and winding waterways of the Mekong Delta are a romantic's dream, and this tour through the beautiful scenery can help you discover why. Cruise through dramatic terrain, stroll through a vibrant traditional village, and enjoy a delicious lunch aboard a riverboat.
After a convenient pickup from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, travel south to the city of Ben Tre. Here, you can see the Mekong meandering its way through lush bamboo forests and rice fields, forming an internationally popular cruise route and a highway for locals who make their way between the villages that dot its shores.
Hop aboard a traditional riverboat for a journey along the river's canals and waterways. Along the way, you can learn about Vietnam's rice and agricultural production with a stop at a small coconut processing plant, where can see how coconuts are turned into oil, candy, and woven mats. At a local village, you can explore long lines of street vendors and market stalls along the bustling streets.
Continue your cruise on Le Jarai, a beautiful teak boat, with a freshly prepared 3-course onboard lunch featuring Mekong Delta specialties. Soak up the sun on the comfortable top deck and take in your stunning surroundings on your way back to Ben Tre, where your transfer is waiting to take you back to Ho Chi Minh City.
