Mekong Delta homestay

2 days

 

Life on the Mekong river

 

 

 

INTRODUCTION

Are you going to Saigon and wondering what there is to do there? We recommend to you the Mekong Delta as Saigon’s most visited site. This trip mixes sightseeing with cultural exchange. You will have a memorable time with the hospitable people of the Mekong Delta by staying overnight at a local homestay
The 2-day trip offers a glimpse into the agrarian life of the vibrant southern Delta region as we wind our way through the tributaries of the Mekong River. From our boats, we are able to closely observe the daily rituals of river life and participate in the bustling commercial activities as we buy our fruits from the floating market. Along the way, we will visit an orchard farm, handicraft village, and a land market with an abundance of colorful fresh fruits and vegetables.

 

ITINERARY

Day 1: Sai Gon - Mekong Delta
This morning we set off for a drive through the Mekong Delta to the town of Cai Be, well-known for it's floating market. Here we will board our private boat for a cruise along the maze of waterways and canals to Vinh Long. We will stop at the home of a Bonsai gardener for a sumptuous Delta lunch, including the popular dish of 'Elephant ear fish' before continuing our exploration of the tributaries and canals of the delta. Towards the end of the day we arrive the home of a local family whose house is built on stilts over the water. These people will be our hosts for this evening and will tell us more about life in the Delta.

Day 2: Floating market
Rising early to the sounds of the Delta coming to life for another day, we have breakfast and start our trip with a boat cruise on sparking streams along the endless waterway of Mighty Mekong River to visit more floating markets. There will be hundreds of boats loaded with fruits, vegetables and fish jostling for trade. Sellers advertise their wares by crying out across the waters. We visit the lush orchards and are treated to a delicious tropical fruits. Afternoon drive back to Ho Chi Minh city.
