The Mekong River, the longest river in Indochina, is divided into nine tributaries within Vietnam and has spawned the vast Mekong Delta. The Mekong Delta is often referred as the 'rice bowl' and the 'garden of heaven', because of its rich soil which is ideal for growing fruit, vegetables and flowers. However, periodic floods have forced the local people to adapt their way of life to the vagaries of the delta and this tour allows you to experience their precariously balanced 'life on the water'. Visiting their floating houses, floating schools and floating markets, you will be amazed by their wet rice civilization. Our team will provide you with a wealth of fascinating information about the region as we sail downstream through the canals of the Mekong River. Join the lively floating market, visit luxuriant orchards, enjoy tropical fruits in the gardens where they are grown, sample delicious local dishes and spend the night on board in this unique setting.
