    The Mekong Delta is one of the most must-see destinations in Vietnam thanks to its distinctly tropical vibe and relaxing ambience. Vietnamese traditional dishes, fruit harvesting, folk music, and countless amazing things await you to explore! Even if you’re on a budget, we ensure that you will explore the Delta to the fullest with our affordable Mekong trip.

    • Immerse yourself in the breathtaking river wonderland of the Mekong Delta, only 2 hours from Ho Chi Minh city.

    • Feel a genuinely welcoming vibe from the local people together with your family and friends.

    • Take a closer look at the local lifestyle with a bicycle ride around the village. You may see people napping in hammocks, children cycling to school or hear the sound of a karaoke session echoing from some local houses beneath the coconut trees.

    Let's admire the Mekong Delta through our customer's lens before you start your own journey.
