Day 1: Explore local life in the Mekong Delta

Your tour starts with in Ho Chi Minh City with a 2.5 hour transfer to the Mekong Delta. The mighty Mekong River enters Vietnam and splits into two main branches, which later divide into nine smaller branches. All of these are connected to each other with a network of thousands of waterways. The Mekong Riverside Resort is located right in the heart of this network. You will arrive at the resort at noon and be welcomed by your private tour guide. A lunch of local dishes will then be served.
In the afternoon you will take a boat ride to Tan Phong Islet where you will enjoy a rowing boat trip and learn from local fishermen about their traditional methods. Next, you will visit a fruit garden and taste various fruits of the delta region whilst drinking tea and chatting with the friendly hosts. You then take the boat back to the resort.
The rest of the day can be spent as you please, perhaps relaxing at the swimming pool or going kayaking or fishing. Later, an interesting cooking class will take place before dinner at the resort. (-/L/D)
