Best experience to have a Mekong delta private tour
Journey from Ho Chi Minh City into the heart of the Mekong Delta on a private tour led by an experienced local guide, cruising along the mighty Mekong in a private long-tail boat. Experience this important river delta firsthand as you explore both jungle-shaded canals and wide waterways to see fishing villages, exotic fruit farms, and the rhythms of daily life. You will also enjoy a lunch of traditional Mekong Delta dishes and sample local specialties along the way.
The area is the final destination of the mighty Mekong River, which winds its way from Tibet, through China, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and finally into Vietnam. An incredibly fertile region, the Mekong Delta‘s prime industry is food production, producing approximately half of Vietnam’s total agricultural output. Local life for villages in the area revolves around the rivers and canals that make up the delta, so much so that people are more likely to transport by river than road.
Escape the city on a tour of the Mekong Delta, where you will see what life is like beyond the city Centre of the South Vietnam. About 2 hours away is the city of My Tho, a former naval base that is now a bustling port city in the Mekong Delta.
