1-Day tours

Just two hours from the bustle of Ho Chi Minh City, the Mekong Delta beckons with its postcard-pretty farmscapes and quiet, slow-paced charm. The “Rice Bowl” of Vietnam is irrigated by thousands of kilometres of waterways, making cruising the perfect way to explore this picturesque region where farming and fishing rule the day. For those with limited time, a day trip to the Mekong Delta offers a tantalising glimpse into how much of Vietnam looks, outside the big cities.
