Roaming the Mekong Delta by boat is popular with visitors to Ho Chi Minh City, but you don’t necessarily need a multi-day tour to discover this rural region. This great-value tour reveals the Delta’s scenery and lifestyles in a day: with riverboat and canal rowboat rides; visits to workshops, villages, and a temple; and an orchard lunch—all with a guide for the lowdown on the sights. Return transfers included.
