Mekong Delta is known as The Nine Dragon river delta since it is formed by nine rivers. The background of this area is the largest site of endless paddy rice fields, coconut farms, tropical fruit gardens. It is very easy for you to catch sight of children riding on the back of the water buffaloes and farmers working on the fields, trading on the floating markets. The rural communities are just the thing for all tourists who want to get rid of the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy yourselves with many beautiful landscapes such as floating markets, Unicorn island, Vinh Sang farm, An Binh island, bee farm, craft village, traditional working village… and many attractive folk games.

Had a awesome day with our Tourguide Ethan!
He spoke perfectly English and guided as through the busy Mekong Delta.
During the home trip (also on the bus ride) he gave us permanent information about the country, culture and things we saw from the bus.
Would recommend doing a tour with Ethan an Kimtravels.
Fair price + good quality.
