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.

What to know in advance for the Mekong Delta 2 Days Tour

There are two main routes for this Mekong Delta Tour after you depart the market, depending on the tour guide and water level.

Bring your camera! The Mekong Delta is one of the most beautiful regions of Vietnam, and there many opportunities to capture classic images of rural Vietnamese life during this Mekong Delta trip.

Please request vegetarian or Halal food options 24 hours in advance of your Mekong Delta tour. Please note for Halal food a $10 surcharge will be incurred.

Soft drinks ( Coke Zero), matcha green tea, water and fruit provided during the boat journey are included in the overall price and not subject additional charge.

Les Rives will provide insect repellent, waterproof ponchos and umbrellas.

When visiting pagodas and temples it is respectful, but not mandatory, to cover exposed skin.

We also recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes, light clothing and a hat.

If you do your Mekong Delta Tour from November to February, we suggest you bring a jacket for the early starts.

Mekong Whisky is available for purchase as a souvenir from the producer.

We are happy to say that no tour is exactly the same with Les Rives, and as result scheduled times can vary slightly.

All guides speak excellent English and will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
