It'd better be a luck as you are going to travel to a faraway land like the Mekong River. Therefore, let's see what should not miss on a Mekong Cruise!
Things not to miss on Mekong Cruise
Staff and crew
Staff and crew are nice and friendly, well trained, good skills and excellent at English. All of them are knowledgeable, informative and just lovely. They will be the best guiding map, leading you to every specific corner of in-coming attractions along the way. If you find something is confused, they will be the most efficient helps.
The Mekong Delta is an amazing waterway and way of life. Tourists to the Mekong can join the languorous clamor by boating into the crush of floating markets or visiting local fruit orchards and fish farms.
Those wishing to get away from the hustle and bustle can travel to towns on the eastern edge of the delta, which is notable for having the highest proportion of Khmers in the population in spite of being the furthest provinces from Cambodia. Tra Vinh and Soc Trang, two such towns, are home to several beautiful Khmer pagodas and are not often visited by visitors.
And for more remote experience, head to the western jumping-off point of Rach Gia and catch a boat to peaceful Phu Quoc Island. There is still little commercialization happening on Phu Quoc, and among the attractions are not crowded dive sites, deserted beaches and cool freshwater springs. People watching along the river are simply fascinating.
