Your day begins with an early morning pick up at your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon).
The drive to the Mekong Delta takes roughly two hours. The first stop will be at a local market right next to the river, where you will see all the fresh local produce on display and observe how the locals prepare their crops.
Then you will board a traditional wooden boat and begin your expedition into the heart of the Mekong Delta.
You will travel deep into the maze of canals, away from the densely populated tourist areas, and sip on an ice-cold coconut as you take in the stunning rural scenery.
You will disembark at a village where you will enjoy a guided tour of the local coconut processing factory.
A motor cart will then take you to a nearby restaurant where you will enjoy a delicious lunch made from locally sourced ingredients.
Your tour concludes with a Sampan boat ride. You will be at complete peace, hearing only the gentle paddles of the boat and the soft singing of the birds around you.
Your driver will be waiting for you at the pier and drive you directly back to your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), where you can expect to arrive at around 8 PM.
