Mekong Delta Private Tour - Shore Excursion
This Tour Departs From The Following Ports:
Pass Rice Paddies & Orchards!
You will be met at your arrival port by your English speaking guide, with a name sign and smile, who will take you to the increible Mekong Delta in your private air-conditioned vehicle. Take in the countless scenes of the surrounding countryside and the agricultural way of life of the locals. Your guide will explain the course of the river as we pass yellow rice paddies and fruit orchards, and you will learn of its origins in the snowy mountains of Tibet. This drive is a comfortable means of observing traditional Vietnamese life pass right before your eyes!
Witness Colourful Markets On The Mekong
A private sampan (traditional motorised boat) will be waiting for you as we arrive at Cai Be. Prepare to embark on an unforgettable exploration of a fascinating waterway. The river here is crowded with floating markets selling colourful fruits, vegetables, flowers and seasonal goods. Tourist-crowded streets will seem a million miles away as we witness traditional trading and the way of life of the locals on the water. Don’t forget your camera for this vibrant display!
Explore Tan Phong Island
Swap your sampan for rowing boats as we venture into the smaller, more secluded canals of the delta. The quieter canals are the perfect place to witness a slower pace of life as we pass under tropical canopies and paddle the serene water. We’ll make our way to dry land next as we explore the island of Tan Phong and enjoy distinctive South-West Vietnamese music with a live performance. Bikes will be provided if you wish to explore this beautiful island further!
Enjoy A Traditional Lunch With A Local Family
Along the way we will visit local families and learn how they use the land to craft everything from delicate rice paper to the sturdy roofs of their homes. The families will treat us to Mekong delicacies for lunch which include freshly made spring rolls, fried pumpkin flower and beautiful braised pork soaked in coconut juice. Before we make our way back to port we’ll visit Cao Dai temple, uncovering native religious beliefs and having a chance to admire the art on the walls of the temple. Your guide will then take you back to port in plenty of time for your cruise departure!
