Your classic Mekong Delta tour starts with pickup from your hotel at 8:00AM. From there you will travel by road to the Mekong Delta, Vietnam’s largest rice bowl.

Upon arrival in My Tho, visit the Vinh Trang Pagoda, a unique pagoda and a mixture of Vietnamese, Chinese, and Cambodian construction. Afterwards, take a cruise around the intricate small canals of the Delta region, which will prove to be a great way to observe the local lifestyle and take in the views, dotted by many islands.
