Please note

  • This is a special tour itinerary designed for those who want to get a real taste of Mekong. The experience-focused getaway is expected to bring you the most ideal journey for the best adventure in one full-day among other traditional tours at a reasonable price.
  • Your visit is also a way of contribution to build up our “giving back” activities at the village we come to support hard-studying students to keep their education move forward.
  • Sustainable development is our main goal and that is why we just run some small private tours to Mekong ( our different route) in a day and our bookings are also limited.
  • Proper shoes or sandals are preferred, especially as we will be getting on/off boats.

● Bring hats, sun cream, and insect repellents.

● There is NO SHOPPING on this tour.

● Your luggage will be safe in the car with our driver. However, we are not responsible for your money, jewelry, phones, and other personal items.

● Please dress properly when visiting temples. The basic rule is to cover your shoulders and knees.

● We provide helmets for scooter riding. The road is flat and very quiet through villages unlike the crazy traffic in the city. Young children will sit either on the back seat of the scooter or between the driver and one adult. The ride is safe at a very slow speed and children love it.

● The weather will be very hot and humid from April to the middle of May.

All feedback is welcomed, and we highly appreciate your reviews to improve our services. Thank You!

Tour Itinerary

7::30 AM: We begin our day by leaving the hustle and bustle of Saigon for the peace and tranquility of the Mekong River Delta. The villages and countryside have not seen as much tourism as other areas, making it an ideal place to explore the local culture.

● Our first stop at a local family business of making incense has traditionally been used for centuries to worship ancestors and in Vietnamese ceremonies.

● Then, pay a short visit to a beautiful and colorful local Cao Dai Temple, Caodaism is a religious sect found only in Southern Vietnam, a religious combination of Confucianism, Christianity, Taoism, and Buddhism.

● A further short drive takes us to a country market which gives you the chance to interact with locals and sample the traditional goods they sell. It’s also a perfect opportunity to stock up on fresh tropical fruit for the journey.

  • Enjoy a peaceful ferry ride crossing the Vam Co River and then drive to Tan Phuoc Tay village where we will take an amazing scooter ride through small hamlets surrounded by stunning paddy fields, vegetable farms, and dragon fruit plantations. This is also a good opportunity for photo-lovers.
  • Lunch at a local restaurant serving local specialties.
  • Head to My Tho city (20 km) and enjoy a boat trip along the Mekong River where you can see floating fish farms.
  • Wrap up our great day with a relaxed boat trip on the Mekong’s picturesque canal.
  • After a short walk through local orchards, we will head over the Rach Mieu cable bridge to enjoy the panoramic view over the Mekong River and make our way back to Saigon by the freeway.
  • Our tour will end at the hotel at around 5:00 pm.
