Leaving Ho Chi Minh City behind, head to the fertile rice bowl of Vietnam: the Mekong Delta. This lush land of palm trees and great rivers is home to some of the best fruit farms found anywhere in the world. Check in to your riverside lodge and relax in the surroundings.
The Mekong Delta is remarkably flat – perfect for push bikes. Take on two wheels and explore the area to understand how this part of the country feeds the rest of Vietnam. Explore duck farms on water, vibrant green rice paddies, and a dragon fruit farm where you can sample fruit straight from the tree. Then relax and absorb the scenery with a sundowner – the Mekong Delta is famous for its dramatic sunsets.
Return to your lodge, enjoy a traditional music show, a cooking class, and then a delicious dinner using only local ingredients from the delta.
