Tour Pictures & Video


The Mekong Delta presents several mesmerizing landscapes across different provinces with their unique features. In this tour you will see more than just paddy fields and rivers. The deep Mekong tour takes you to the narrowest trails, fully surrounded by nature. We even drive within the fields far from the paved roads or any roads at all. In this way you can see most of what the Mekong has to offer: rice fields, corn fields, lemon fields, dragon fruit fields, chilly fields, all sorts of trees and vegetation. We cross several villages on narrow paths, some left intact from the French Indochina times. And we take the smallest commercial ferries to cross the multiple streams and rivers whenever bridges are absent. This tour gets you closer to the Vietnamese farmer’s culture, Vietnam’s history and nature.

Very few tourists get to see this phenomenal floating market. The boat continues on to a industrial rice market (no tourists) and it’s an opportunity to talk about the Vietnamese economy.
