About this tour
With its meandering waterways and flourishing farms, the Mekong Delta is a place not to be missed. Venture out through this iconic landscape and discover riverbanks dotted with coconut palms swaying in the breeze and sprawling rice fields sparkling in the sun. Be dazzled by a collage of coloured orchards, marvel at ramshackled houses on stilts and travel a waterway that bursts at the seams with boats of every conceivable size and shape. Learn about life on the Mekong Delta from local hosts, savour freshly picked fruit and gain a true appreciation of why this area is known as the ‘ricebowl of Vietnam’.You'll be spending a night with a local family on this trip. While the accommodation is shared and basic, this is a great opportunity to connect with the local people (and enjoy delicious home-cooked meals!).

Please be aware that it can get noisy.On this trip it is possible that you will be joined by other travellers, some who may have booked on a longer trip, or even with a different company.This short trip spends little time in Ho Chi Minh City, using it as a base from which to reach the Delta. Should you want to spend more time in Ho Chi Minh City, perhaps consider our South Vietnam Getaway, which incorporates this homestay.
