You’ll experience the old-world river life of the Mekong Delta, and enjoy a lesser-seen glimpse into rural Vietnam as it trundles along a slow tempo, as it has done for centuries. Visiting a Cao Dai temple, Buddhist pagoda, river market and so much more. Bursting with charming local color and scenic views.

Travel by modern speedboat and enjoy countless photo opportunities of the idyllic scenery and local people as you cruise past buffaloes plowing fields, fruit orchards and rice paddies during our Mekong Delta tour. Our tour provides close-up looks at small-village life along the river particularly during your time spent at a local family’s homestead, where you’ll be invited to enjoy fresh coconuts and fiery Mekong Delta whisky.

You will have a traditional Mekong Delta lunch including fried elephant ear fish, a delicious specialty of the region, at a local house!

Experience Authentic River Life in Les Rives Mekong Delta 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!

Depending on the route, you will then visit a local pottery workshop, where arts and crafts of the Delta region are produced, and a traditional riverside house with huge Burmese pythons as pets. Then you’ll explore the surrounding village, rolling fields of tapioca and iconic rice paddies.

If you’re lucky, you’ll get to see the rice paddies before the harvesting season, which is a marvelous sight. Your next stop will be at a traditional farmhouse, where you try the local produce including coconuts and Mekong Delta whiskey.

Another variation of the tour begins with trying local Delta produce, as well as Mekong whisky and wine. Then walk along the verdant banks of the river to a traditional rural Vietnamese house, where 3 generations live together.

In the village, your Mekong Delta Tour guide will introduce you to the house owners, who each have their own stories of life in the Mekong to share. The second variation provides more of an insight into living in the Mekong Delta, and its customs and culture.

A special feature of this Mekong Delta Tour is that you will be able to visit both a Buddhist pagoda and a Cao Dai Temple. Near the Cao Dai Temple is an orphanage run by Buddhist monks, where you will hear story of the orphans who live there

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.
