From house boats to boat restaurants the Mekong Delta represents one of the most densely populated locations in Vietnam and provides one of the most alluring ventures around Saigon. Following a pick up from the pier you will drive approximately 2 hours to the Mekong Delta. Along the way you will pass lush rice paddies and fruit farms scattered along the highways before finally arriving at the An Hoa River for your exploration by a private and shaded sampan boat. Sip on some coconut juice and observe this unique way of life that is distinct to rural Vietnam. A brief stop will be made at a small brick kiln where the locals still use centuries-old methods to make bricks by hand.

At the Huu Phuoc canals you will switch off of your motorized boat and onto a hand rowed sampan for trip into the small canals off the main waterway. This maze of water paths will be navigated by your personal guide as you enjoy the peaceful scenery and break from the buzz of the floating markets and riverside cities. Once back on the boat you will make a stop just down the river at a local restaurant for some fresh Mekong Delta specialties.

After lunch you will walk along a shady village and meet at a house of a former soldier who survived 4 years fighting the Khmer Rouge in Phnom Penh. You will learn all about life in the area as you chat with him and his wife while enjoying homemade crispy rice paper. On the way back you will walk through a local fruit garden and hang out with a famous sticky rice maker within the village before finally boarding the boat again in transit to Luong Hoa village. From here you will hop in a private vehicle and you will be driven back to Saigon.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
