Experience the feeling of being on a speedboat, why not ?
Travel by modern speedboat and enjoy countless photo opportunities of the idyllic scenery and local people as you cruise past buffaloes plowing fields, fruit orchards and rice paddies during our Mekong Delta tours. Our tour provides close-up looks at small-village life along the river particularly during your time spent at a local family’s homestead, where you’ll be invited to enjoy fresh coconuts and fiery Mekong Delta whisky.
Tours by speedboat
The Vietnamese have a saying that people who live by the river and live with the river. Not only is the delta a place of shelter for its people, it’s also a provider.
Depending on the route, you will then visit a local pottery workshop, where arts and crafts of the Delta region are produced, and a traditional riverside house with huge Burmese pythons as pets. Then you’ll explore the surrounding village, rolling fields of tapioca and iconic rice paddies.
If you’re lucky, you’ll get to see the rice paddies before the harvesting season, which is a marvelous sight. Your next stop will be at a traditional farmhouse, where you try the local produce including coconuts and Mekong Delta whiskey.
Another variation of the tour begins with trying local Delta produce, as well as Mekong whisky and wine. Then walk along the verdant banks of the river to a traditional rural Vietnamese house, where 3 generations live together.
