Things to do on Mekong Delta

Mekong Delta is the picture of river and boats only? Change your mind as there is a wide variety of enjoyable activities.



1. Staying at idyllic homestays


Once travelling to the southwest region, you should try to stay at homestay to get authentic local lifestyle here. Most homestays are designed with Vietnamese traditional style, very basic and rustic which brings you placid and relaxed feeling. Furthermore, staying at homestay to learn local customs and traditional cuisine is definitely amazing experience. 



2. Cycling around rural villages and walking through orchards and rice paddies


Start your day by biking along the paths through the villages or walking through the lush greens of orchards and rice paddies. This tour allows us to explore fresh orchards, witness the charming beauty of endless fields, immerse into poetic picture of meandering canals along Mekong River, especially to interact with the sincere local people



3. Visiting bustling floating markets – unique Vietnamese markets

 
Mekong Delta is characteristic of floating house, floating village, especially floating market.  The most well-known floating market is Cai Rang located in Can Tho. Arriving Cai Rang floating market, you will see a hundred of boats full of variety of tropical fruits, vegetables and brilliant flowers. People seem to be busy with their livelihood. You could join in their daily work as an amazing experience, buying some fresh fruits and enjoying on sampan or tasting some specialties on boat such as “hủ tiếu – a kind of noodle”.



Cai Rang floating market is a vivid and colorful picture on Mekong River. 

4. Cruising on rivers and rowing sampan through small canals


Mekong Delta is water world with a number of meandering canals. The best way to explore the mystic beauty there is cruising on rivers and rowing sampan through small canals
