WHAT TO EXPECT

Experience Life in the Mekong Delta 2 Days Tour…

The Vietnamese have a saying that people who live by the river and live with the river. Not only is the delta a place of shelter for its people, it’s also a provider.

Many villages and towns depend on the countless canals, tributaries and markets in the region for produce. As well as fish, produce yielded by the Delta’s rich alluvial soil includes rice, sesame, peanuts, cashews, pineapples, dragon fruit and durian.

As part of the tour, you will visit a bustling riverside market overflowing with Delta produce, which you can sample. There will be lots interesting and colorful photos opportunities!

You will then visit a brick atelier, a coconut candy and a weaving mat workshops. Then you’ll explore small canals of Ben Tre by boat.

A special feature of this tour is that you will be able to visit both a Buddhist pagoda and a Cao Dai Temple.

Your Les Rives chef serves you a traditional Vietnamese lunch includes fresh spring rolls, caramelized pork, chicken with ginger, and the Mekong Delta delicacy, Elephant Ear fish.
