Overview

The Mekong Delta is a region in southwestern Vietnam where the mighty Mekong River, a river that runs through six different countries in Southeast Asia, empties out into the sea.
The Delta is an incredibly interesting and important region, covering more than 15,000 square miles. It’s biologically diverse, with over 1,000 different animal species. It’s the agricultural heart of southern Vietnam. And it’s also one of the most important fishing regions in all of Vietnam.
Being a world afloat, Mekong Delta is a water world where boats, houses, and markets float upon the numerous rivers, canals, and streams that traverse the landscape like channels.
The Mekong Delta province of Can Tho is best known for its endless green rice fields and abundant orchards. The beautiful scenery is ornamented by thousands of storks spreading their wings against the sunset sky in Bang Lang Stork’s garden.
Meanwhile, a quick stop at Kimmy Chocolate, the Southern’s largest handcrafted chocolate manufacturer, located in Tien Giang, which provides the stable cocoa raw material, shall be an interesting experience.

Taking a 2-day trip to the Mekong Delta with Tien Giang and Can Tho provinces is something you should definitely consider once deciding to have enough search on this peaceful land.

Itinerary:

DAY 01: Hochiminh – CaiBe – Vinh Long- Bang Lang Stork Garden-Can Tho (B/L..)

Our trip into the Mekong Delta begins in Ho Chi Minh City or Saigon at around 6:30 am. We took a bus a little over 1 hour and 30 minutes outside of the city to the Delta port town of My Tho. Breakfast is included on the way when we stopover at a resting place.

Making a quick stop at Kimmy Chocolate, the Southern’s largest handcrafted chocolate manufacturer, located in Tien Giang, which provides the stable cocoa raw material, shall be an interesting experience.

Upon arriving in Cai Be, we will board on the boat to eye-witness some of the Mekong Delta’s most breathtaking scenery: Mekong life on the boat. You will learn about how the Delta is the agricultural heart of southern Vietnam; how the Delta is also one of the most important fishing regions in all of Vietnam, and more importantly, you will know how life on the boat is.

Next, you will land in the local village to see how local people make some traditional products like Pop rice cakerice winerice paper, and sticky, toffee-like coconut candy. Heading back to the water once more to cross a large river to a beautiful island and then we will take a skinny sampan boat through fruit orchards and mangroves, water coconut leaves. This is the moment that you can marvel at the beauty of this part of Vietnam. At the simpleness. And at the silence

You will then be led to a local orchard garden where you could enjoy some tropical season fruits, listening to traditional folk songs performed by local artists. Crossing over a Monkey Bridge, you will then visit a bee farm and have a taste of honey tea, and honey wine. It’s just how things are here, in a place where tourism is swiftly becoming an important industry of its own.

Lunch is served at a local leaf-roof restaurant nearby where they will bring you out delicious fresh spring rolls, whole grilled fish, curries, rice, fresh fruit, and more. You will then take a rest or take a KAYAK for a while or ride a Bike Cycle around the village.

We shall then leave Cai Be for Bang Lang stork garden, in Thot Not district, 60 kilometers from Can Tho city, which is one of the biggest bird sanctuaries in the Mekong delta. The path to Bang Lang crosses through vast rice fields under the shade of green bamboo trees. With a large number of travelers and researchers every day, Bang Lang stork garden has become an attractive eco-tourism site in Can Tho City. Thousands of birds on the bamboo tree could be seen from 16:00 to 16:30 pm as the birds return home from a hard day looking for food.

From Bang Lang Stork Garden, the van shall take 01 hours to your hotel/(Home-stay Optional) checking in. Free time to explore Can Tho city at night time and small night market!

DAY 02: Can Tho – Cai Rang Floating Market – Ho Chi Minh City (B/L..)
After breakfast, we shall pick you up at the hotel at 06:30 for an early floating market trip. It takes about 40 minutes to get to our first spectacular landscape —- Cai Rang floating market.
This is the largest floating market on the Mekong River. During this visit, you’ll have a chance to board a merchant boat that sells pineapples we will eat some fruits at the top of the local boat. Amazingly stunning photographs are there!
After that, our boat goes on to reach a noodle and a rice paper factory and another 10-minute boat ride shall take you to a fruit orchard where we will have 30 minutes of biking around the countryside. This is the very time to leave the main tourist trail and go off-grid to discover local life. Tropical fruits and tea, together with the fishing activity shall be the next part to recharge after the biking time.

The time now should be around 11:00. Let’s go back to Ho Chi Minh City we will have lunch at the biggest beautiful restaurant in the Mekong.

Tour ends once we drop you back at around 17:00 Pm.
