OVERNIGHT ON THE MEKONG DELTA
2 Days/1 Night

Extend you stay in Vietnam with a luxury cruise along the Mekong Delta in our Overnight on the Mekong aboard the Song Xanh tour. You will board the Song Xanh, a private traditional boat and discover less visited areas, colorful markets and great scenes of rice fields as you embark on this Vietnam tour.

The Cuu Long region, which translates as 'Nine Dragons', otherwise known as the Mekong Delta is a great place to discover Vietnam. Amazing waterways hidden amongst vibrant tropical fruit gardens, bustling floating markets that offer a cornucopia of items and acres of emerald rice fields are what make this region so unforgettable. Have a choice between two gorgeous boats for an overnight stay.

The private Song Xanh is designed as a traditional sampan and its small size allows you to discover the smaller canals, rivers and tributaries of this region. Cruise Cai Be's and Cai Rang's colourful floating markets; visit Sadec, the Mekong town made famous from Marguerite Duras' novel 'The Lover', enjoy an unforgettable dinner in a 19th century house and the sights of sounds of this fascinating region.

Day 1: Ho Chi Minh City- Mekong Delta                                                              

(L, D)                                           

After breakfast, depart for the Mekong Delta. Leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind as you travel through Vietnam’s picturesque countryside with its rice paddies and rural villages. Upon arrival in the Delta board the private ‘Song Xanh’, modeled after a traditional sampan. The boat’s small size allows you to discover the smaller canals and tributaries of this region. Your visit includes the home of Mr. Huyen Thuy Le, a character from the novel ‘The Lover’ by Marguerite Duras as well as Thien Hau Pagoda. Return to the boat for lunch. Continue to Can Tho stopping en-route at a Cao Dai Temple. Cao Daism is indigenous to South Vietnam and the colorful and unusual murals that cover the temple’s interior will blind you with their brilliance.

Before sunset, the last stop is at a splendid 19th century house where an unforgettable candlelight dinner will be served. After dinner, proceed for one hour to Can Tho where your sampan will be moor for the night. Overnight aboard the Song Xanh Boat.

MEALS: Breakfast independent. Lunch and dinner included.

Day 2: Mekong Delta- Ho Chi Minh City                                                            

(B)            

Cross the Mekong on the way to Cai Rang Floating Market, take in traditional sights such as rice barges, wooden ship building yards and even fruit drying along the Mekong’s banks. The main items sold here are fruit and vegetables and every boat has a long upright pole at its bow on which samples of the goods for sale are hung. The waterway becomes a maze of hundreds of boats packed with mango, bananas, papaya, pineapple, and even floating pho vendors.

After your visit of Cai Rang check-out and disembark to your waiting vehicle for the 04-hour transfer back to to Ho Chi Minh City. 

MEALS: Breakfast on board. Lunch and dinner independent.
