    Cruise along this river gives the opportunity to see closely the daily life of the delta inhabitants and an authentic Vietnam. Here, the real roads are the waterways, crisscrossed with sampans and boats. The Mekong Delta is crisscrossed by a multitude of canals, paddy fields and gardens, islands and villages punctuated by the pulsations of the river. Here we slide on the water with boats or canoes. The people of the delta have been fascinated by the waters of the river that governs the lives of men from birth to death. Everything depends on the Mekong: the work of the fields, the orchards or the rice fields, the fishing, the transports, the traditions ...

    Transfer by boat to the orchards where you will taste the fruits of season. Then you will visit the old house Binh Thuy. There, the driver of your vehicle awaits you to take you back to Saigon. Arrival in Saigon and check in at the hotel. Dinner and night in Saigon.
