5 DAYS NEW EXPERIENCE IN SOUTHERN VIETNAM
 

The five days on the complex maze of the Mekong Delta is adventurous enough for some people, but this tour gives a taste of life on the Mekong River and its tributaries. The tour begins in Ho Chi Minh City and from here we drive to Cai Be in the heart of the Mekong Delta. Here we board our boat enabling us to view this amazing area much as the locals do. Gliding on the bustling waterways we shop at floating markets, eat tropical fruits in lush orchards, discover the art of Bonsai growing and have tea in a typical boathouse.
