  • Discover the verdant landscape that is known as the Mekong River Delta

Nicknamed the ‘rice bowl of Vietnam’, the Mekong River Delta is a flatland stretching from Ho Chi Minh’s southwest to the Gulf of Thailand. Orchards, paddy fields, and swamplands make up the rustic landscape of this verdant region, which is well worth exploring as an escape from Saigon’s street scenes. Start the trip with an early pick-up from your accommodations before heading to the first stop of the day Bỏng Cốm. Visit a local family and watch as they prepare some traditional Vietnamese snacks for us to try. Up next you’ll board a boat and head to Tan Phong Island, one of the more well-known islands in the Mekong Delta. Tan Phong is especially popular for its fruit orchards, aquaculture, and fishing. You’ll also pass by the floating market area and learn about its history and significance from your friendly guide. The next stop is an Ancient House, known by the locals as the old house of Mr. Kiet. This ancient house is almost 200 years old and has five bedrooms. The interiors of the house are intricately decorated with rare pieces of wood that are inlaid with numerous delicate carvings. After taking in the stunning architecture and decor, you’ll have a late lunch before departing for Ho Chi Minh and heading back to your accommodations.
