Visiting the fascinating Mekong Delta is like taking a step back in time. This is one area of Vietnam where people continue to live as they have done so for centuries. Farmers cultivate the paddy fields, tend the orchards of tropical fruits, fish in the rivers and canals that cross this fertile area. Take a boat trip and see the markets at work where people buy and sell boat to boat. You can also observe the locals living their lives with the water at their doorstep or, if you choose, rent a bicycle and explore the flat roads of the Delta. Whatever you choose to do with your time, the area will be a delight you with its unique and ancient traditions and ways of life.
Getting there: Just 2-4 hour drive from Ho Chi Minh City depending on where you start your tour.
