Saigon port (Ho Chi Minh) - Mekong Delta - My Tho - Ben Tre - Saigon port
The trip is designed for those who want to get away from the bustle and hustle of Saigon. During the trip, travelers will enjoy the beauty of the watery areas in Mekong Delta with maze of rivers, canals and islets...as well as discover the authentic life and activities of the locals from the iconic fishing villages to craft workshops and especially be dipped into the folk music which has remained over hundreds of years. Let's grab the Mekong Delta Shore Excursion From Ho Chi Minh & Day Tour to get closer with nature and people in Mekong Delta.
