Long An – Bến Tre – Tiền Giang
This is not the typical Mekong Delta tour. In this tour you will drive through villages and farms, witnessing first hand the features and environment of the farmer’s life. We will cross 3 provinces of the Mekong Delta, each offering different landscapes and great picture points. This is mostly an off-road tour, so wave bye to highways and get ready for small provincial roads and several dirt trails of moderate levels.
The Mekong Delta is a system of rivers crossing the southwestern tip of Vietnam. It is called the rice basket of Indochina because of its fertility and capacity to grow enough crops and paddy fields to feed the nation. In this tour we will take several bridges and ferries as roads by land are not sufficient to cover the territory.
- Experience Vietnamese culture in the Mekong Delta
- Drive on a mixture of road and small back lanes
- Off the tourist trail and into unique areas of the Mekong
- Local foods and homestays
We will eat the local food which is unavailable in other regions of the country.
The food served will be typical dishes of the Mekong such as salty river fish grilled with local spices, vegetable and pork rolls with fish sauce, diversified vegetables and of course fruit platters varying depending on the season.
Should you want to be adventurous with the food, options such as duck embryo eggs, coconut and silkworms, snake meat or other specialties of Vietnam are also available. These need to be pre-ordered.
*Vegetarian food will need to be pre-booked. However, neither vegan nor
gluten-free options are possible.
